Sign up for Tournaments: Ocean State Pickleball Classic registration link to "Pickleballbrackets.com" (use their logo along with the OSPC logo) This September we will be hosting our 2nd Annual Ocean State Pickleball Classic Tournament. This year's event wilkl be held here in Bristol, RI at Roger Williams University. All money collected after expenses will be donated to the "Alex's Smile Fund" at Meeting Street. Meeting Street is a local non-profit organization that is a national leader in child development, education, research and training. Meeting Street provides services for over 5,000 children and their families each year. "Alex's Smile Fund" helped Meeting Street construct its therapeutic pool, which is used every day by students both with and without special needs. Last year we donated close to $1,500 and we hope to double our donation this year due to the larger facility that we will be playing in. We are planning on using Pickleballbrackets.com for our tournament registration/administration software.
For those interested, the Barrington Parks & Rec will be sponsoring two beginners clinics this summer. Starting on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, I will be holding an ADULT Pickleball 101 clinic at the Kent Street Tennis Courts in Barrington, RI beginning at 9am to 10:30am. This clinic will run for 5 weeks ending on Aug.7th. We are also planning on offering a TEEN Pickleball 101 beginners clinic. This 5 week clinic will be for players 13 to 19 yrs old and will run immediately following the adult clinics from 10:30am to 12noon. These clinics are open to residents and non-residents but if you are interested in attending then please contact Michele Geremia for more information. Space is limited.
