Tournament(s) Update - February 9

Some additional information has become available for two tournaments:

Greenville, SC - I highlighted this local tournament in a January 30 post. Since then, the on-line registration has opened. I started the registration process about a week ago and finally got registered today. The registration process was obviously flawed and we have worked through the process of getting it right. Some quirks remain but registration will occur. Be aware that there is a multi-step process in this enrollment-type registration. 

  1. A membership account with the county recreation will have to be established. As a member from last year, I do not recall all of the details but it is free.
  2. Registration is similar to enrolling for a class. A "prerequisite" is required for all Senior Games activities. The prerequisite is a one-time fee of $12.
  3. Enrollment for either or both of the pickleball tournaments completes the registration.
On-line registration starts at the Greenville Recreation website
  1. "Hover" over the Programs tab at the top of the page and click on Senior Programs in the second column of the highlighted box.
  2. Click on Greater Greenville Senior Sports Classic.
  3. Click on Registration is Now Open. CLICK HERE.  (note that paper forms to register will be available here soon)
  4. Click on the shopping cart (far left icon) in the first section labelled 117092 - Greater Greenville Senior Sports Classic Registration.
  5. You may be able to also click the shopping cart for the tournament date(s).  Since my sign-up process didn't work until the third time, I don't know if this will work or not. 
Good luck.
