On July 21, 2023, SASF Pickleball Directors, Thai Ly and Bill Lee, participated in the Inaugural Ballpark Series Pickleball Event. The event was held at Oracle Park, (home of the SF Giants) in San Francisco, CA. Both professional and amateur players had a unique opportunity to play on courts established around the outfield area of the venue. Thai and Bill participated in the 3.5 Men’s Doubles for ages 60+. They successfully outlasted several good teams, coming from the consolation bracket to win Gold! Congratulations on their win and representing SASF in winning style!
