Dear Sponsors,

Thank you so much for supporting HCHC's inaugural Pickle with Purpose event!  There are many ways you can participate in this year's fun event.

Learn & Play Pickleball

All sponsors and guests are welcome to learn the game of pickleball in the weeks leading up to the event.  We encourage you to go for it because if you can play ping pong you can play pickleball! 


You can get a free introduction to the game at the following times and locations.  There is normally a drop-in fee but if you tell the front desk attendant and the instructor "Pickle with Purpose" they will let you join the event for free.

We will also be hosting free clinics on the day of the event, Saturday, October 22nd!  Instructors will lead the clinics from 6:30-7:30pm and 7:30-8:30pm.  When you check-in on the day of the event, we will give you a pass for either the 6:30 time slot or the 7:30 time slot.

If you want to want to learn the game, contact Neslie (info below) to confirm your participation.


Come & Watch Pickleball
Not yet ready to play yourself?  Not to worry - come out and watch some great tournament pickleball.  Tournament match play will be finishing up from 5:00-6:00pm before the party - so come and check out the competition!

Enjoy the Party!
Not interested in the pickleball, again not to worry, just come out and enjoy drinks, food and music while mingling with your friends and colleagues.  The party begins at 6:00pm and will last until 10:00pm.

Experienced Pickleball Players
