It is an honor to be the first President of Chicago Metro Pickleball. With this job comes the responsibility of creating a platform for the current and future success of our wonderful new organization.

We are excited about the "Chicago Pickleball Open." Our intention is to bring you an annual world-class tournament that strives to become one of the major “must attend “ tournaments on the summer circuit.

A team of Who’s Who in Chicagoland Pickleball has joined forces to make this one of the great Pickleball regions in the world. It is humbling to serve with such an incredibly dedicated, committed and talented group of people.

We are looking forward to meeting you in July at the "Chicago Pickleball Open."
