Dick Johnson again brings home Gold at the US OPEN!

Boise’s own Dick Johnson won a gold medal at the recent US Pickleball Open Championships!

From Lawana Johnson:

Besides the Gold in 75 Mixed Doubles with Gail Brown, Dick also took 4th in 75 Singles and 5th in 75 Mens Doubles. Medaling again at this year’s US Open begins Dick continuing into his third consecutive year of medaling in all 6 Grand Slam Major events in 2015-17 (22 National/World medals: 9 Gold, 8 Silver, & 5 Bronzes). He is also one of the few pickleball players in the world who have played in both the tennis and pickleball US Opens.

djuso It was the largest (and, many felt the toughest tourney in history). 1300 players from 15 countries competed over 7 days (compared to 900 at last year’s Nationals). 48 lighted courts in beautiful Naples, Florida, including a spectacular covered stadium court with box seating. Televised by CBS Sports. Prize monies for the pro events. Wheelchair events. Clinics by the Professional Pickleball Academy. Entertainment each day.
