Championship court was bumping all weekend at the PPA Tour Orange County Cup in San Clemente, CA. We got it all from chugging beers to behind the back shots to huge upsets. The party is just getting started as Major League Pickleball comes into town this week.
Tyson Mcguffin hits for the pickle cycle taking gold, silver and bronze. He won gold in men’s singles beating local OC star Connor Garnett, won silver in mixed with fellow Skechers and Selkirk Sport partner Catherine Parenteau, and took bronze in men’s doubles with James Ignatowich. #mulletpower
Joolabros Ben Johns and Collin Johns are dubbed their 8th men’s doubles gold medal in 2023. However, it was a first time doing it in matching t-shirts.
NoBetta Ettat Wright gets her back to back silver medal in women’s doubles doing it with a different partner this time in Irina Tereshenko. The Seattle Pioneers aren’t complaining at all…
As you might have predicted, the MLP partnership who played together this weekend that went the furthest was Callie Jo Smith and Lucy Kovalova. They took bronze in women’s doubles letting all of their Major League Pickleball opponents know that they’re coming!
