Three members of the Sun Lakes Pickleball Club IronOaks brought home gold medals after competing in the Margaritaville USA Pickleball National Championships in Indian Wells, CA in November 2022.

 

Chris and Roger Koski, playing mixed doubles in the 3.0, 65+ division, won the top prize after a grueling 6.5 hours of competition against players from across the U.S.

 

Lois Tuey and pickleball legend Alice Tym (from Tennessee), competing in the women’s doubles, 4.0, 80+ division also took home the gold.

 

According to Chris and Roger, the venue at Indian Wells was outstanding and although the tournament was large, with 2,500 fierce competitors from all across the country, the environment was warm and friendly.
