Thank you to all who joined us at our Pickleball for the Planet event! It was wonderful to see everyone come together in the spirit of sportsmanship and community, and everyone’s enthusiasm and energy on the court made it a night like no other!

With everyone gathered together, our Executive Director, Tonya, made initial remarks welcoming everyone after which players split into pairs with experienced players warming up and beginners learning new skills with CityPickle coaches. Following a bit of open play time on the courts the marquee event took place, the tournaments! All the players fought valiantly in their matches with many people taking tumbles and dives all in the hopes of getting the ball across the net!

Congratulations again to all of our tournament winners and a special thank you to our sponsor Eva NYC and Shake Shack for some amazing prizes! Throughout the evening attendees enjoyed food and drinks by Great Performances and the night closed out with a bit more open play before heading home with some special giveaways. Our heartfelt gratitude to partner Wollman Rink and CityPickle for hosting us and providing us with a great evening!

We appreciate all the support for GCF’s young climate leaders, and we look forward to creating more memorable moments together in the future!

If you missed the event or just wish to support, you can make a contribution here.  Together, we can continue to make a difference and have a blast doing it.
