Meadow Point Players Medal at Mid South Regional

MP Picklers Rich and Donna Donald competed in the doubles and mixed doubles competition at the Mid South Regional Pickleball Tournament. This was a USAPA Sanctioned Tier 3 Tournament that took place on April 8th and 9th in Mandeville, LA. Nearly 200 players competed in the tournament from Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, North Carolina, Florida, Arizona and New York. (May have been others - that's all I can remember!) Donna and Rich enjoy the Pre-Tournament Social on Thursday evening. Great food, and a Good Cake!
Rich and his doubles partner, Paul Coletta from Flat Rock, NC went undefeated and took the Gold. Donna and her partner, Diane Ramsdell from Arkansas lost their very first game, but then went undefeated in the remaining round robin games in their split. They lost the first medal match 21-15, but won the second 21-18 for the Bronze Medal.


Rich and his mixed doubles partner (center) from LaFayette, LA also went undefeated in their round robin split. They then had to play three medal round games to 21 points. The second game was a nail biter! They were down 0-10, and then came back for the win 21-15. They took the third match without a problem and brought home the Gold.


"Getting the opportunity to meet and play with so many players from across the country was a wonderful experience, and one we hope to be able to enjoy again real soon"
