Sequim Picklers Update — September 14, 2022


Sequim-Bainbridge Cup Tournament comes to Home Courts this Saturday!


Two weeks ago, Sequim Picklers battled it out on Bainbridge’s home turf.

This Saturday, the contest comes home to Sequim.


Who will win the Bainbridge-Sequim Cup Pickleball Tournament?

Starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, September 17*, 44 Sequim Picklers will go head to head with 44 of their Bainbridge counterparts on our courts at Carrie Blake Park.


Bring a chair and come cheer on the Home Team!

In Bainbridge on September 3, 88 players competed on six new courts and six older courts. That allowed us to use traditional scoring and still get all the games played before the sun went down.

In Sequim this Saturday, those (mostly) same 88 players from Bainbridge and Sequim will fight it out on eight courts. To speed up play, Rally Scoring will be used, which means if you win the rally, your team scores whether you’re serving or not. In other words, whoever wins the point gets the point, regardless of who serves. Games to 11, win by one.

Volunteers are still needed to help out at the tournament. See the article below for available jobs and contact information.


And get ready to R-U-M-B-L-E! (In a friendly way, of course!)


[*Note: The tournament replaces Rated Play this week. Rated Play will return next Saturday.]
