Hello Pickleballers,

August is just around the corner.  Make plans to join us for our 1st Annual Tournament.  August is a beautiful time in the Willamette Valley.  In addition to our tournament, there are wineries literally around every bend.  The Northwest Art and Air Festival is in full swing with hot air balloons launches every morning and night glows in the evenings, Saturday concert by Styx, festival stage music running all day,  the largest car show in western Oregon, Local airplanes on display, helicopter and Bi-Plane rides.  Did I mention Art in the park?  If you are not playing pickleball there is much to do.


Please make reservations early as RV parks and hotels fill up fast.  We have some special hotel rates available.  Here is a list of RV parks and Hotels:
