I'd like to let you know about a new pickleball tour to Spain that I'll be hosting. It's a 9-day escorted tour to Madrid and three other historical cities in Central Spain. Here's a one-page brochure with all the details:
There are two tours planned for September of 2014. Chris Thomas is the player-coach on the first tour (Sept. 4-12) and Timothy Nelson is the player-coach on the second tour (Sept. 19-27). More tours being planned for 2015.
Chris Thomas thinks this is the type of activity that many pickleball players would enjoy and suggested I send information to you in case you'd like to share it with players in the Southwest region. For your information, I'm a USAPA member but this is not a USAPA-sponsored event. I'm also the president of the Spanish Pickleball Association.
It's going to be a great experience for all who participate as we explore some fascinating cities, play plenty of pickleball, and get to know the locals on and off the court. I hope you can join us on one of them.
Saludos from Spain,
