Local Area Players Particpate In Naples Florida Pickleball Tournament

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to send out a quick congratulations to all the Toledo players who participated in the Collier County Pickleball Tournament in Naples Florida. This was a USAPA Sanctioned Tier 4 Tournament and open to players 16 years of age and older. Of the 130 players present, Toledo was represented by five players; Judy Lambert, Vicki McGrath, Jeff Foster, Marge Cater and Connie Mierzejewski.

I know what you are all thinking, warm and sunny Florida!  Wrong!  This tournament landed on a weekend where the weather was unseasonably cold and very windy.  As you all know, wind makes the game of Pickleball very interesting and difficult to play.

A big congratulation to Connie and her women’s doubles partner Sherry Jackson for bringing home the Gold in the 60-64 year age bracket!  Way to go Connie!

If you would like to read more about the tournament and see some pictures from the event, please click on the link below. Results are shown below tournament results, with links to the pictures below the results.  


If you are playing in any tournaments, please let me know and I will send out the results to the group.  I really want to encourage everyone to consider playing in some of the local Michigan Tournaments this summer.  Also, it is our goal to eventually have a Toledo Tournament at some point in the not so distant future! 

See you on the courts!

  1. Marsha,
    Congratulations to your Toledo Winners at our Collier County Naples Tournament. It truly was not typical Florida weather that day. My husband played in the very last match of the day, under the lights as we all bundled in blankets court side!!!

    We hope your players will return!! Please mark your calandars for February 1, 2 and 3, 2013. We will be hosting our very first Atlantic South REGIONAL Tournament., USAPA Sanctioned. Sixteen courts will be set up at the East Naples Community Park……….and we promise (?) that the weather will be better!!!! Watch for more details on the USAPA Tournaments page.
