  1. I can I get a copy of the 70+ Gold Metal Match in the 2016 Grand Canyon Tournament?

    Thank You Glen Brower/Gale Dacey

  2. I really enjoy watching the videos of these tournaments, especially the slow motion so that I can study over the form of hitting the ball, court position of the players, and, in the case of the 5.0 tournament, the high level of skill that is achievable!
