The AAU Englewood Chill Blast Pickleball Tournament made history this weekend as the first-ever pickleball event hosted for AAU members. (What the heck is pickleball?!) More than 180 athletes from 11 states and Canada – ranging from age 19 to 75 – competed on Florida’s west coast as part of the Florida Pickleball League.
“We were so excited to host the Inaugural AAU Pickleball Tournament,” said Yvonne Devlin, AAU Pickleball Co-National Chair. “Our best success comes from the individuals who participated in the event. We are looking forward to growing the sport in all ages through the country using the AAU platform.”
