Pikes Peak Pickleball Association's (PPPA) It's Fall, Ya'll social event occurred on Sunday, October 2nd at the new Springs Pickleball facility on Vondelpark Drive.

Special thanks to our Social Committee members, PPPA Board members, Scott Evans, the Owner of Springs Pickleball, Roberta Loughman from RE/MAX, Karrie Williams and Mark Jakusovsky from Colonel Mustard's Sandwich Emporium, and everyone else who had a part in making this event a huge success.
