  1. Who is the genius who cancelled/postponed at the last moment today’s video of the USAPA’s 2017 national pickleball championships which were held in Casa Grande, AZ November 4-12?

    We had a big party planned around this program. I imagine there were quite a few pickleball parties around the country that were similarly disappointed. Don’t mess with pickleballers like this again!
