Dave Shepherd Passed Away June 27, 2015

With extreme sadness, my husband Dave passed away peacefully in the Abbotsford hospital on June 27, 2015.  He has fought a brave battle against cancer for 16 months. We had a wonderful marriage together for over 40 years with two adult children. Dave had a very happy 76 years of life, especially enjoyed playing golf and pickleball.  

David was a very nice, kind, friendly, loving, honest, intelligent, athletic, generous and compassionate  man and a wonderful husband and my best friend.  I will treasure the lovely memories we have together.  As the PCO President from 2012-2014, Dave has helped PCO build a solid foundation.  PCO will continue to grow and have great success in the future.

Video SoCal Summer Classic 2015

Held yearly at Oceanside, CA, the SoCal Summer Classic is one of the top pickleball competitions in the country - and Pickleball Channel was excited to be a part of it! There were no easy first round matches here - over 80% of the players were ranked 4.5 and above, but there were many new faces claiming bronze, silver and gold! Check out this short video of the event. When you watch it, you will get a real sense of the fun atmosphere and exciting game play.
