6th Annual Rally In The Valley – August 2017

Our 6th Annual Rally In The Valley Pickleball Tournament was held Aug 4-6, 2016 at the South Albany High School.  We dedicated this tournament to our good friend and long time member Cora May Johnson. Cora May’s smile, laughter and pickleball spirit will be dearly missed, but fondly remembered, by our club.

Our Ice Cream Social on Saturday was a huge success!  We had 3 different flavors of Ice Cream from BJ’s Ice Cream.

Thanks to each of the players and spectators for attending the Rally In The Valley. Each of you contributed to making this tournament a success. The pickleball community is a fantastic group and this tournament proved it to us once again. You just don’t meet better people anywhere. The friendships we have made through pickleball are invaluable.

Thanks goes out to the Albany Pickleball Club for all their hard work to arrange, set up and pull this event off. They were always there when help was needed. We can’t forget our pickleball friends from around the country who came in early and stayed late and were there to help us set up, tear down and pitched in daily for anything that was needed.

Special Thanks go to Ken and Shannon Porter of Pickleball Bling.  Ken sang our National Anthem each morning and they provided security at night.  Not to mention their great line of pickleball apparel, paddles and bling.

Special thanks to the referees and line judges who volunteered. We hope you know how important you are to the keeping a tournament running smoothly. We could not have pulled it off without your help.

We hope we will see all of you again next year at the 7th Annual Rally In The Valley Thurs August 2 through Sunday August 5, 2018.
