Less than six months after being offered as an athletic activity through Dawson County’s Park and Recreation Department at Rock Creek Park the pickleball program announced that they were sending their first-ever team to the District 7 Regional Pickleball tournament Aug. 9 -11 in White County. Featuring a range of experience, the 11-member team will compete in the men’s singles, men’s doubles, mixed doubles and women’s doubles categories over the course of the three-day tournament with the goal of advancing to the state tournament in Rayburn Sep. 13-15. “We are excited to be able to send all of the participants that were interested in going,” Programs and Facilities Coordinator Buffie Hamil said. “Out of our 11 participants, we will have representation in all of the categories except the Women’s Singles. Our department and all involved are super excited to be sending participants this year and can’t wait to see where it takes this program!”
