Got a call yesterday from Nancy about the 2017 Myrtle Beach Seaside Classic Pickleball Tournament The girls will be returning this year to run the tournament. For those that are new, this is one of the biggest pickleball tournaments on the east coast. Last year, there were more than 275 players from all over the country.
This will be played in Myrtle Beach's new Sports Center behind the convention center. This year the dates are:
Thurs Sept 21 - Open Practice
Fri - Sept 22 - Women's Doubles
Sat - Sept 23 - Mixed Doubles
Sun - Sept 24 - Men's Doubles
They will have cash prizes for Men's and Women's 5.0s. No singles play this year.
The MB Pickleball Club supports this tournament and provides volunteers to run the tournament. We will need 40-50 volunteers to run this smoothly. We'll need folks to tape the courts (up to 25 courts), registration, stuff shirts, hydration stations, referees, scoreboard, setup and tear down. We'll send out volunteer signup information at a later date.
We'll also begin to look for sponsor donations as we have in the past. This can be cash donations, gift cards, discount certificates as well as items for the player bags.
For more information on the tournament and to register, please use the following link. All registrations will be done online this year.
