WCF’s Inaugural Pickleball Tournament 2

1st Inaugural Pickleball Tournament

On Saturday, April 6th, WCF held their Inaugural Pickleball Tournament at the new Chicken N Pickle. All proceeds will go towards health insurance premium payments for local cancer patients. Not only was this WCF’s first pickleball tournament, but it was also the first tournament held at the Wichita Chicken N Pickle. 13 Recreational teams and 9 Competitive teams battled on the pickleball courts to win the prize. In the end, David & Lori Belew and Gary & Lad Oborny walked away with Pickleball Rackets from National Champion, Lucy Kovalova! Lucy also was gracious enough to lead a Kids Klinic for the children at the tournament. We are so grateful to everyone that came out to support WCF and our very important cause. Thank you also to our sponsors, for helping us succeed in our mission. We look forward to planning our 2nd Annual Pickleball tournament in the future!
