2020 Fall Brawl Pickleball Tournament

Image
  2020 Fall Brawl Pickleball Tournament Stephen Wade Auto Center  was pleased to sponsor the 2020 Fall Brawl Pickleball Tournament .  The tournament was held from October 6–October 10 at Little Valley Pickleball Complex.  Over 700 players were in attendance! If you've heard of pickleball but don't know what it is, it is a paddleball sport that is a combination of badminton, table tennis, and tennis.  Two or four people may compete on the court at one time for a game of singles or doubles.  Solid paddles made of wood are used to hit a hollow ball over a net.  Some consider the sport easier than tennis because the court is smaller and serves are executed underhand as opposed to overhand. Thank you to St. George Pickleball for allowing us to be a part of the event.

2020 Sporting Clay Tournament Mercedes-Benz of St. George  was pleased to sponsor the  Associated General Contractors of Utah   2020 Sporting Clay Tournament .  The 2020 Sporting Clay Tournament was held on September 18 at Purgatory Clay Sports in Hurricane. If you may have heard of sporting clay and don't know know much about it, it falls under the "clay pigeon shooting" category, which covers many different types of competitive sporting events where the athlete typically has a shotgun and shoots an object made of clay as it is launched into the sky.  Unlike trap and skeet, sporting clay features more unpredictable trajectories and angles.  Sporting clay is also known as "golf with a shotgun" and consists of many different shooting stations.
