Possible pickleball tradition begins on a dare

The Door County Pickleball Club put on its first Polarball tournament outdoors on New Year’s Day at Sunset Park in Sturgeon Bay. Over 20 players brought out the snowblowers and salt to clear the courts, dry them out, and partake in three hours of pickleball fun. Club President Jay Renstrom says he expects the tournament to become a tradition likening its humble beginnings to the Polar Plunge in Jacksonport.


Most pickleball action through the winter happens at the Door County YMCA but as soon as spring blooms the fun heads outdoors again. Membership in the Door County Pickleball Club is only $25 per year.
