Huntsman World Senior Games

Our own Rick Hooker participated in the Huntsman World Senior Games October 12-16.  The Games offered 28 different sports to more than 10,500 athletes from all 50 of the United States and from 19 different countries. It is a phenomenal event.

Registration for pickleball filled 500 slots in three days!  In the end, there were 548 players and 1398 matches!
