Sarah Ansboury and Corrine Carr seemed to be on the wrong end of a bit of pickleball drama in the pro women’s doubles division. The new pair scraped their way to the bronze medal match when a rain delay stopped the match in game 2 at 3-7-2 (Ansboury and Carr took game 1). Then, in an effort to change clothes and shoes, Carr left the venue quickly during the rain delay. On the way back, her ride’s car wouldn’t start, which stranded her off-site. After flagging down a ride, she arrived to the venue too late, so Ansboury and Carr were defaulted, as the Official Rulebook of pickleball requires a referee to call a match forfeit if a player does not report to the pickleball court within 15 minutes of being called to play. According to Carr, when her and Ansboury’s opponents were asked if they would play, they chose not to. As a result, Carr and Ansboury were delegated to the bronze medal, and were not able to continue their fight. This must have been a tough pill to swallow, especially after winning game 1. Carr and Ansboury seemed to take it in stride and complimented each other as first-time partners. With that said, we would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for this one and seen the whole story on how this situation went down.
