As some of you might already know, Cleveland will be hosting the 13th National Senior Games. The Games, a 19-sport, biennial competition for men and women 50 and over, is the largest multi-sport event in the world for seniors. Pickleball is one of the core sports. Athletes that meet specific criteria while participating in the State Senior Games qualify to participate. I hope someone from Toledo Pickleball made the cut and will be competing in the event.
I was contacted by the Volunteer Coordinator and they are in BIG need of volunteers for Pickleball. It is very easy to sign up and I will be helping for three days at the event. The dates for Pickleball are July 27 through August 1st at the Cleveland Convention Center, E. 6th St. & St. Clair Ave. NE. There are volunteer opportunities throughout the day at many different stations such as athlete check-in, floater/runner and many others.

If you have questions and would just like to speak someone about the opportunities, please feel free to call Lauren Grys @ 216-479-6361.
This will be an exciting event for Pickleball and I hope several of you will consider helping out and being a part of the fun! If anyone is playing in the event or if you decide to volunteer, please let me know.
See you on the courts!
