The Melba Bishop’s March Madness Pickleball Tournament is just around the corner; coming the week-end of March 16 – 18.  Registration turnout has been active, with players from NY, UT, AZ, BC and, of course, from Southern California.  Melba Bishop will be well represented too, with over 20 players registered so far.  Interested in playing in March Madness? Consider pairing up with one of 20 men and women players, at all levels, who’ve already registered but are still looking for a partner; or perhaps, take the challenge and enroll in one of the open 4.0 to 5.0 events.  To register for March Madness, visit

Given the strong turnout, some events have closed, and others are certain to follow.  That means it’s important for players to finalize any open registrations now, to ensure events are secured: i.e., be certain your doubles partner is registered, complete the liability waiver form, and pay any outstanding tournament fees.

Melba Bishop tournaments are challenging, healthy and fun; and add a little coin to our Club’s Rainy-Day fund.  Hosting a tournament involves a good deal of work, done by members and visiting volunteers.  Please help by volunteering; perhaps a morning, or afternoon, during this tournament?  Email your inquiries to
