Columbia River Pickleball Club has great showing in 2013 State Games of Oregon.

The State Games of Oregon which took place at Tualatin Hills Recreation Center on July 13-14 was a great success with many of the most talented pickleball players in the country participating. The event was equivalent to two separate tournaments, age divisions being played on Saturday and skill levels played on Sunday. Competition was intense but friendly. The total event ran smoothly thanks to the great efforts of the tournament staff as well as many volunteers who stepped up and helped referee, post scores, and do whatever was needed.

A total of 151 medals were awarded, 85 in age groups on Saturday and 66 in skill groups on Sunday.

Members of Columbia River Pickleball Club garnered 50 total medals, 21 gold, 18 silver, and 11 bronze.

Congratulations to the Tournament Team of Steve Paranto, Paul Hartel, Jim Cessna, Mike Hoxie and Lala Climaco. Tammy Cessna, Connie Anderson and Judy Rosenthal were also key volunteers in keeping things moving.
