Check out this point! Susannah Barr, one of our local pros, was Robb’s partner! Great work, Susannah!
Everyone loves a great rally during a pickleball game and we are so excited to be able to share a fantastic one with you!
If you missed it this past weekend, Pickleball Channel was able to air the live stream of the PRO Mixed Doubles matches from the Las Vegas Pickleball Open presented by Head Penn Pickleball.
This point during the bronze medal match between Robb Cassidy & Susannah Barr vs. Irina Tereschenko & Riley Newman was so surprising, as we watched it happen live, that we had to share it with everyone. It has everything: diving, scrambling, no-look shots, poaching, covering, ernes, cross-court action and more.
Watch this Point of the Day video showing all the athleticism these players could muster and if you can get out on a court in your area, try to have an amazing rally yourself!
Special thanks to Head Penn Pickleball for presenting the event.
Special thanks to Dave Benz and Simeron Gonzales for their exemplary commentary during the live stream event.
Special thanks to Plaza Hotel & Casino who have supported the growth of pickleball by providing this professional broadcast event the last three years.

As we begin to wind down the summer can you please send out some reminders to the players in Boise Pickleball Club?
- Please wear court shoes that are meant for the tennis or hard court surface. We are noticing shoe marks left from running and hiking shoes more frequently.
- No tape is allowed on the court surface. Our maintenance staff has been pulling up tape at various sites, the past month.
- Do not permanently adjust the nets on the dual court locations, Boise Hills, Bagley, Helen B Lowder and Terry Day. All courts need to be returned to their proper net height, 36” in the middle, every time.
We do appreciate the continued efforts from everyone in keeping the courts and surrounding areas clean and respecting the court hours. Happy Pickleballing!
