Ft. Wayne, Indiana….what does the name of the city bring to mind?  Well, unless you are a true Hoosier, you’ll probably be scratching your head, saying Ft. Who?   It is a great town, where three rivers meet and the people who live there have a sense of pride about their city.  

Pickleball has taken hold in Ft. Wayne, mostly because the majority of the folks living in there are age 45 and up.  It is a beautiful place, the home of Johnny Appleseed, and the home of the USAPA Regional Tournament which will be held August 14-16, 2015.
