RuizvsGabrielsenThe Bullhead City Recreation Division along with its sponsor Harrah’s Laughlin, is excited to announce the Bullhead City Pickleball Tournament taking place November 16 -18.  Pickleball is played like tennis on a badminton size court, with enlarged paddles and a plastic wiffle ball, and is rapidly growing in popularity!  The tournament for ages 55+ offers three divisions: singles, mixed doubles and doubles.  It is $5 per person per division.  The last day to register is November 6. 

 

Due to the generous support of our community, the first 100 Pickleball participants registered will receive a free goodie bag at the start of the tournament.  Harrah’s Laughlin is offering special room rates for Pickleball players.  During the Tournament, there will be a hospitality suite on site, sponsored by Valley View Medical Center with snacks, drinks and ping pong.  At the conclusion, of the event there will be an awards ceremony on November 18 for all of our participants with free hot dogs, popcorn and water.  In addition to Harrah’s Laughlin and Valley View Medical Center, we would also like to thank Century 21-Colorado River Realty, Big 5, Buffalo Wild Wings, Laughlin Visitors Center (Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority) and Suddenlink Communications for contributing to this tournament.

 

We also invite anyone interested in learning to play Pickleball to stop by our Pickleball Open Gym offered Monday – Friday from 9 am to 12 pm at the Suddenlink Community Center at 2380 Suddenlink Way.
