Four Seasons Senior Games

From the North Carolina Senior Games website:

Each spring, thousands of people enjoy participating in a Local Senior Games in North Carolina.  The qualifiers are invited to participate each fall in the Senior Games State Finals held in Raleigh.  Every two years, the State Finals winners qualify to represent North Carolina at the National Senior Games.  State Finals 2016 is the National Qualifying event in North Carolina for the National Senior Games in 2017 to be held in Birmingham, Alabama.

There is no more local pickleball tournament than the Four Seasons Senior Games held in the Henderson County Athletic and Activity Center. As a past participant, I was recently sent an update for the 2016 games.  The schedule for the entire slate of games is May 1-15 with the specific date for pickleball not yet announced. Registration closes March 31. The opening date for registration also has not been announced. In 2015, a registration kickoff event was held in early March with a lunch and discounted entry fee.

A direct link to the registration page is here.  It still lists the 2015 information. I assume it will be updated as information is available so keep checking back there...or on this website as I will also update the information as I receive it. 

Please note that this has been a closed event in past years, meaning it has been open to residents of Henderson and Polk Counties only.  The current information for the 2016 games states that outside participants will be accepted on a case-by-case basis.

Good luck if you enter...and you should!!!
