New Champs On The Ppa Tour

developer 08-08-2023

The last two weeks went by quickly with two stops on the PPA Tour. The first stop was the Seattle Open, which kicked off with taking pickleball to new heights at the Space Needle.

Anna Leigh Waters was the star of Seattle as she also reached new heights by claiming her 6th triple crown in a row (tying the record for triple crowns in a row).

The second stop was the PPA Showcase, which was just a bit south of Seattle in Newport Beach, California. The PPA Showcase saw some fresh faces take home their first PPA gold medals in singles, as Hurricane Tyra Black (who gave Anna Leigh just her second loss on the year in earlier rounds of the draw) and Gabriel Joseph each claimed victory. JW Johnson and Dylan Frazier also gave a gutsy performance to knock off the Johns brothers and claim back-to-back gold medals (as they also won gold in men’s doubles in Seattle). Lastly, although dropping to Black in women’s singles, Anna Leigh continued her gold run in women’s doubles with her partner Anna Bright and mixed doubles with Ben Johns.

For the full recap of the two pro tournaments, check out the following:

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for more pro pickleball action in August!
