  1. When will you post the Senior Men’s Open Gold medal match from Brigham City in May?

    • Hi Scott,
      First, congratulations on winning the gold in that event with your partner Steve Kennedy! Pickleball Channel was not actually at the event so we do not have any videos of the event. However, I did find a video of that match which was livestreamed from the PPF Facebook page. If you click on this link, it should bring you directly there. Your match starts at 1:20:00 roughly and you should be able to see the whole thing.
      If that link doesn’t work, just go to the PPF Facebook page at and click on the tab on the left that says VIDEOS. Your Video is the one entitled PPF Rocky Mountain Championship with a total length of 2:51:32. The videos are’t clearly labeled so it’s easiest to find by length of time. Your match starts at 1:20:00 in that video. Good luck!
