Pickleball Tournament Brings Hundreds to the Grand Strand

Over the weekend the grand strand had hundreds of visitors all here for the same reason! The Carolina Coastal Pickleball Club hosted one of the largest pickleball tournaments in South Carolina. Over 700 players participated in the Mid Atlantic Diamond Regional. The tournament director explained how being a part of the sport as it grows, has been fun, especially for older crowds. Most of the players are 50 or older but over time young players have become involved as well. Not only is this tournament a fun and friendly competition, it raised money for local charities as well. Over the last 4 years, they have raised $50 thousand.
