It’s a Big Dill 2022

Posted on May 2, 2022 by under Events, Pickleball.    

Here are some video highlights from the It’s a Big Dill pickleball tournament at the Wichita Country Club benefitting the Wichita Children’s Home (WCH) last month.

It is my second time helping with this tournament and my first year of being fully immersed in it, from start to finish. I even volunteered for the kick off party on Friday. It was great because I got to see my friend Misty Miller who I have not seen in a long time. She is an avid volunteer for WCH events.


I teamed up with my friend Jody Vinson to run the tournament along with Wichita Country Club staff members Michael and Bryce. Unlike last year, we ran right on schedule. We had four divisions start at 9 AM and we ended shortly before 2 PM. In fact, Brian and I left after helping with tear down and, when I looked at the clock on his dashboard as we were pulling out of the parking lot, the clock read 2:01 PM. We could not have planned it better!

It feels so rewarding to be part of a successful event that makes a difference for the community. I still hope someday I will actually be able to play but, for the time being, I’m happy with helping put the tournament together.

Until next time, GNG.
