Triple Crowns Galore

developer 03-20-2023

The PPA Tour made back-to-back stops in Daytona Beach, Florida and Austin, Texas. Although a few surprise contenders found their way to Championship Sunday—notably, 54th seeded Collin Shick in the men’s singles draw in Daytona—familiar faces ran the table, as Ben Johns secured back-to-back triple crowns and Anna Leigh Waters took 5 out of 6 gold medals home (including a triple crown in Austin). Catherine Parenteau secured the remaining gold medal in the women’s singles event in Daytona.

The PPA Austin Showdown will also sadly be known for the tragic passing of senior pro player Thanh Vo, who passed away during his singles match at the event. Vo was 54 years old and is survived by his wife and two children. A GoFundMe was started to help transport Vo back to his home in Nashville, Tennessee and for his memorial arrangements. Our deepest condolences go out to the Vo family.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for more pro pickleball action this month…
