Try your luck at Schaumburg Park District’s Shamrock Pickleball Tournament.
Players ages 50 and older are invited to the tournament, set for noon to 4 p.m., March 9 at The Sport Center, 1141 W. Irving Park Road.
Pickleball is a fun, fast-paced sport played with a paddle that combines the skills used in tennis, racquetball and ping-pong.
The format of the tournament will be round robin, with eight players in a bracket and seven games guaranteed. Winners will be determined by the total points scored in each bracket.
“This tournament is a great way to get exercise and engage in a friendly competition,” said Karen Shannon, The Sport Center manager. “In addition to this tournament, we also host an Adult Pickleball Drop-in Program at The Sport Center on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.”
Register at The Sport Center or online at parkfun.com. Registration deadline is March 1.
