The weekend of 17-19 May was a great one for TLC pickleball members and families, with competitors racking up 6 medals in two different regional tournaments.  One of the highlights was Dinah Zapatka winning two gold medals at the GA Games in Griffin, GA, confirming that she is one of the top picklers in the state at her level.  Another highlight was how well our offspring fared.  Curtis and son Jacob Rakosi won gold and Chris Eastwood (Andy’s son) won a silver in his first regional tournament.  The teams that won gold at the GA Games qualify for the National Games later this summer.  Congratulations to the following players:
