Dinking for Pink Pickleball Tournament Benefitting Lump to Laughter
More than 120 players from across the Southeast and Canada participated in a Pickleball Tournament at the Cape Fear National pickleball courts in Leland this past March. This competition was a success and helped raise more than $13,000 for the Lump to Laughter organization.
Pickleball is a quick-paced racket game combining elements of tennis and paddleball, but it uses a plastic ball that looks like a more solid waffle ball. The tournament consisted of men’s and women’s doubles as well as mixed doubles. It was a very competitive and entertaining event for both the players and spectators. Awards were given for first, second and third places in each division of skill levels.
Lump to Laughter is dedicated to supporting people who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, with a focus on renewing spirits and alleviating anxiety. Executive Director Connie Hill says that relieving stress and eliminating worry for cancer patients is what Lump to Laugher is all about. She wishes to extend appreciation to all of the sponsors as well as the Brunswick Forest community for hosting the tournament.
