Once again, as in 2020, we are facing unusual public health issues that prevent us from running a full-scale, indoor pickleball tournament. Taking into account the cancellation of the Atlantic Regionals and the movement of the senior games Pickleball matches to September, we decided to give players a July tournament this year. With the long days in July, we hope to run longer sessions than we did in Gherkinfest 2020, and are planning to play from 8:30 AM through 6:30 PM (change due to our now being allowed to start a little earlier).
To practice good social distancing, we will forego our normal Saturday night social this year.
