The 4th annual Low Country Pickleball Classic is scheduled to begin next week and will feature men’s, women’s and mixed doubles competitions, a Lowcountry boil and a dancing pickle.
Tournament action begins 8 a.m. April 21 and lasts through April 23 at Sun City Hilton Head.
This year’s tournament will be bigger than last year’s event, according to tournament director Reuben Oder: 216 players from 16 states have registered to date.
Oder expects the event to raise about $8,000 for charity. Last year, the tournament raised $4,000 for Hardeeville’s Jasper County Neighbors United and $3,000 for Hilton Head Island’s Operation R&R.
There are divisions for players aged 19 to 70-plus, as well as different skill-level groupings.
The tournament will feature a Lowcountry boil April 21 at the Sun City Pavilion. A limited number of tickets are available at $20 per person.
