Nevada Senior Games - 2022

SNP Lends a Helping Hand

September 19, 2022

The Nevada Senior Games sponsored a pickleball tournament September 16 through 18, 2022.  This marks the 10th anniversary of Pickleball as a sport event in the local senior games.  The event was held at the Sunset Park Regional Pickleball Complex in Las Vegas with 214 players competing for gold, silver, and bronze.

Players were able to participate in an amateur sporting event, make new friendships, renew old relationships, and enjoyed a weekend of their favorite sport.

Most participants came from Nevada with representative traveling from Hawaii, California, and Utah.  One player from England represented the Solihull Pickleball Club. Congrats to all.

This was truly a volunteer effort, great competition, and a good time.

Winners are eligible to compete in the national senior game championships next July in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

The Nevada senior games have begun planning for next year's tournament with registration opening in Spring 2023

Trademark Images

Mascot

August 7. 2022

At the Southern Nevada Pickleball Board meeting held July 28, 2022, a motion was approved to recognize three of our images or a color variation thereof as trademarks for the organization.  Plan to see more of the following images at events, with fun items and on merchandise.

Our emblem that serves as our logo.

The Desert Bighorn Sheep (Ovis canadensis nelsoni) serves as the association’s mascot. 

The Desert Bighorn is Nevada’s state mammal and is native to our community. They are hearty creatures, determined, navigate with speed and agility, and apply keen eyesight. Desert Bighorns are social, band together in herds and have adapted to the desert’s heat and cold.

"Bighorns" can now be found on local courts with a paddle, ball and perseverance.

Where can I find courts to play in Boulder City?
