UCF's First Pickle Ball Champions
After instructing participants in the art of pickle ball the doubles tournament began this past Saturday, February 22.
Seven teams competed in a sport that most of them had never heard of let alone played. The tournament tested the ability of participants to quickly learn and be the best at a new sport.
The tournament started off with pool play games. Each team played in two pool play games, playing best 2 out of 3 to 11 points. After the rankings were in, teams were seeded into the single-elimination tournament. The championship game came down to the number 1 and 2 seeds, Classic Vlasic and Feelin' Sour. In the end Classic Vlasic won and became UCF's very first pickle ball doubles champions.
Following the doubles tournament was the singles tournament. Ten players competed for the grand title of pickle ball singles champion. Most of the participants had already competed in the doubles tournament so they were familiar with the game. Robert Cleveland and Scott Gould were the two finalists and Robert was able to out pickle Scott to become our first pickle ball singles champion.
Congrats to all winners. Hopefully you enjoyed UCF's newest tournament!

What is PickleBall?
Curious about pickleball but not sure what it is or how it's played?
Pickle ball is a mix between tennis, badminton and ping pong. Special pickleball paddles are used along with a pickle ball (similar to a wiffle ball).
-serves are served underhand and diagonal across the court
-the receiving team must let the ball bounce before playing the ball
-the return shot back to the serving team must also bounce before it is played
- teams may volley the ball (hit the ball before it bounces) provided they are not in the no volley zone
-The game is played to 11 points and teams must win by 2 points.
The tournament has both singles and doubles slots and teams can be single gender or co-ed.
