CASTANET May 14th 2023, Vernon BC (some edits by Admin):
More than 600 competitors are in Vernon this weekend for the inaugural BC Provincial Pickleball Championships. Held at the Okanagan Wealth Advisors Pickelball Complex in Marshall Fields, the event features players from 13 to 80 years old.
Tournament Director Richard Chambers said the 620 men and women are “from all corners of the province. It's the first ever BC Provincial Championships, it also happens to be the largest provincial pickleball championships held in Canada.”
The 1,000+ matches are being played in the complex and on the tennis courts next to the building.
“You are going to see athletes of all ages waging war,” Chambers said. “Although it has a funny name, it is a really fun game.”
From here, the winners typically go to the Western Canadian Regionals and then the Canadian Nationals. Chambers said if anyone wants to see what pickleball is all about, he invites you to the stop by the Pickleball Depot-sponsored event today's Mixed Doubles events and Sunday Men's Doubles.
Medal winners will be posted on our Virtual Trophy Wall following the close of the Tournament.
