2023 Chuck Allen Memorial Pickleball Tournament

There was an overwhelming response to the 3 rd Annual Chuck Allen Pickleball Tournament. We had 140 teams (200 people) compete against each other. This represents an increase of 30 teams from last year. The tournament (entry fees, raffle and other donations) raised a total $7,500 which benefits the Double H Mission in Lake Luzerne. That's over $2,000 more raised than last year! Many thanks to all the folks who worked on making the tournament possible and those businesses and individuals who donated raffle items. The raffle alone raised $2,200, plus we had 2 sponsors; CDPHP and Pickleball Galaxy. There are so many to thank including all the players who took part in the tournament. That includes those players who couldn't make it this year due to last minute injury or life circumstances but donated their entry fees! I apologize in advance if I've overlooked anyone.
