Kamloops put on its first annual Tournament Capital Games September 8-10, 2017. The Games hosted a variety of sports including: Mountain biking, hockey, slo-pitch, squash, soccer, swimming, tennis and of course PICKLEBALL!! The Saturday Night Social included live music in Riverside Park as well as food vendors and a beverage garden.
The pickleball portion of the tournament was held Saturday Sept. 9 and Sunday Sept. 10. Participants were treated to lovely courts and venue at Riverside Park in downtown Kamloops. Rain delays on Saturday afternoon resulted in a very busy day for the men on Sunday! Amazing sportsmanship and comradery were displayed by all palyers as is always the case in this great sport of Pickleball.
A huge thank you goes out to the organizers and volunteers who made the 2 days of the pickleball portion of the Games such a success. Looking forward to next year and improving on the success we had this year.
