Pro Mixed Doubles GOLD from the 2019 Las Vegas Pickleball Open

The 2019 Las Vegas Pickleball Open had plenty of curve balls it threw its competitors. This year the extreme winds on top of the Plaza Hotel & Casino, which is the usual home to the tournament, caused the mixed doubles matches to be played indoors at the Jam On It sports complex in Henderson Nevada. Interestingly, many of the top players did not feel comfortable playing indoors and opted out. This left an opening for other players, whom we might not normally see in a medal match, to step up and show us what they’ve got.

In this Pro Mixed Gold Medal Match from the 2019 Las Vegas Pickleball Open the odds on favorite team of Ben Johns and Cahterine Parenteau take on Callie Smith and Adam Stone. Can Smith and Stone pull out an upset and walk home with gold? Watch this match to find out.

    A suggestion for indoor tournaments: It would be great if you could use blue lines and an orange ball on a wood floor, instead of a yellow ball and yellowish lines on a yellowish floor. We can’t see the ball about half the time, and close line calls, no way.

    People were confused at how a semi-western two hander, baseliner named Bjorn Borg was able to win 5 straight Wimbledons. Well , the simple answer was that Borg played most of his indoor tennis on wood courts, which were comparable to the grass courts as Wimbledon.
