Courtside Pickleball and Tennis Club is proud to support Meals on Wheels Delaware by hosting the inaugural Battle of the Paddles Pickleball Tournament. All proceeds will benefit Meals On Wheels Delaware.
The tournament will be held September 30th. Registration will be done initially at the skill level, and age brackets will be determined after the close of registration. Every attempt will be made to split ages into brackets of more than six teams, but if this cannot be done fairly to all players, we reserve the right to create smaller brackets. If you are new to pickleball, this would be a great tournament for you, as we are offering a 2.5 skill bracket!
