Doug came all the way from Nashville, Tennessee. The tournament was put on by the Paso Robles Pickleball Club at Centennial Park.
The tournament was “lots of fun and the players really enjoyed playing together in memory of Dick Bieden,” according to a press release. There were 40 players and many others supporting the play, providing lunch and clean up.
