Venice Paparazzi hosted a super fun photo booth for all the fine folks in the paddle tennis community.  View the good times!

Here is a message from event organizers Street Paddle.

Everything started on Friday with a pre tourney mixer which took place on Abraham’s on Lincoln, a space that Street paddle took over and decorated for the occasion with a ping pong mini tourney, players got to know others before competition next day.

We had 160 players, divided in 3 categories (women, men, mixed) and 4 levels (open,A1,A2, Social/beginners) 

We had crews coming in from Ojai, San Diego and others that traveled the whole country from Detroit, New York and Florida to be part of the annual national event (we are very lucky and proud of this)

277 matches took place in 8 courts during 2 BEAUTIFUL days in the best park in the world, Venice Beach.

We want to thank the 3 more important elements of this successful event:

Soul: the players for believing and supporting us

Heart: Volunteers that made this events happened and made everything run the way they did: Adam and Gillian Schoenfeld, Keith Rojas, Melissa Wulff, Fernando Wulff, Jack Fair, Alba Villaronga, mike payne.

Muscle: Our Sponsors for making us bring more perks to our environment and players: 

Jones builders, Movement co, LATV, Deep C Digital, Califortunate, Boomtown brewery,, Venice Paparazzi, Stuart Rush, Richard Kohan
