February 2020 – The Las Vegas Pickleball Festival will be the next Dink Pickleball event that will feature a wide array of happenings including afternoon clinics, city tours, and/or day time entertainment.
Dink Pickleball has been sponsoring pickleball festival and events in nine states with an international festival, one national tournament and three series tournaments. Founded by Mickey Collins, his passion for pickleball started in April 2015 when he first attended a small community center tournament.
Apart from different tournaments, Dink Pickleball is most recognized for its festivals. The idea for a non-competitive yearly festival to celebrate “all things pickleball” occurred to Mickey early on his journey. In 2017, he started a partnership with Nick Holmes and Sara Garrett of Brightstar Events to make it a reality.
Fast forward to present. Now on its second run, the Las Vegas Pickleball Festival will be a three-day fun filled activity from April 17 to 19 hosted by Plaza Hotel and Casino and presented by Franklin Sports. The festival will kick off on Friday, April 17, 2020 with the opening ceremony scheduled at 6 PM of the same day. Dinner and evening entertainment will be included with registration and the cash bar will be available throughout evening. Sign up for your preferences at check in so you can choose what activity you want to take part in.
On day two, Saturday, April 18, 2020, open play will start at 8 am to 9 pm followed with day-long clinics, city tours and/or day time entertainment. Happy Hour will begin from 5 pm to 6 pm, cash bar only before the Closing Ceremony starts at 6 pm.
Just like the pickleball festival last year in Kansas City, this will also feature non-competitive open play, clinics, food, live music and entertainment. Mickey expects this to have undeniable success and bring in excellent reviews from media outlets as well as its participants.
