Breakthrough Community Sports, Inc is pleased to host our 2nd open regional pickleball tournament in the DC Metropolitan area. We expect to attract over 300 participants plus their friends and family members and the public. As the fastest growing racket sport in the USA, pickleball is very popular not only among baby boomers but among people of all ages. Last year we welcomed players from 19+ states. This year we expect players to join us from Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware and beyond. The increasing growth and popularity of the sport creates a unique opportunity to showcase your company and support a demographic who are gracefully aging, living active lives, and outspend the average consumer in every category.
