Sun, Sep 6 - This is the day of the 6th Annual Virginia Pickleball Ken & Faye Ewbank Pickleball Tournament at Thousand Trails Chesapeake Bay, Gloucester, VA.  The tournament is run by Mike Roberts who heads the Pickleball program at TT Chesapeake Bay.  Back in 2010 as we were leaving the East coast for several years, Mike asked us if they could name the Labor Day Tournament in our honor!!  Of course!!  That would be wonderful!!!   It is now time for the Sixth Annual Tournament!  We were thrilled that we were at the campground this weekend and could participate in all the fun.

The Application!

Of course the tournament was played on the Ken and Faye Ewbank Pickleball Courts!!

And then, later in the afternoon there was a Singles Tournament.  Sorry, did not get pictures for that competition.

It was a wonderful tournament! Congratulations to all of the winners as well as all of the participants.
