May 03, 2021 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsIT'S BACK! The 2021 GAMMA Pickleball Classic is returning to Pittsburgh once again! This annual event will be held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center from August 6-8th, 2021. In previous years, the tournament has brought in over 800 participants across 30 states. With the 2020 tournament being canceled due to COVID-19, we're excited to be able to bring the GAMMA Pickleball Classic back to Pittsburgh again.
Each year, the GAMMA Pickleball Classic partners with the Parkinson Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and contributes a portion of the proceeds from the tournament to directly benefit the foundation. The Parkinson Foundation of Western Pennsylvania recognizes the sport of pickleball as a therapeutic exercise for those diagnosed with the disease and actively seeks to make pickleball the official sport of the Parkinson's community.
The 2021 GAMMA Pickleball Classic would not be possible without the help of various sponsors. To date, GAMMA Sports is excited to partner with Hydrant, Citizens Investment Services, PNC Bank, and more to make this year's tournament the ultimate success!
