The first annual Alamo Pickleball Tournament, held in conjunction with Alamo Winter Texan Appreciation Day, took place on Saturday, Feb. 20th at the Bowie Adult Education Center. 14 teams from Winter Ranch participated, with two teams from Trophy Gardens and one from Alamo Palms. It’s hoped that more from other RV parks will enter next year.
There was a men’s and women’s doubles tournament in the morning and mixed doubles in the afternoon. Six teams were entered in each division. The tournament was organized by Warren Lock and Dody Anenson.
