Jennifer Lucore Hears about Pickle Jam

My identical twin sister, Carol Amos, is a pickleball fanatic. She’s an ambassador, cheerleader, and promoter of all things pickleball.

Carol is the “Marge in Charge” of the Cal Neva group coming to Pickle Jam 2020. The group currently has 48 members, and Carol has set a personal goal to have 50 members in her group.

As she was promoting PJ2 on Facebook last night, she tagged a group of fellow players about the event.

One of those Carol tagged was none other than Jennifer Lucore, a 2019 Pickleball Hall of Fame inductee.

I have followed Jennifer’s illustrious pickleball career since I started playing years ago.

From Jennifer’s Web site

Jennifer Lucore is a professional pickleball player and a global pickleball ambassador. Her numerous gold medal championships include: 17-time USAPA Nationals, 11-time Canadian Nationals, 6-time Huntsman World Senior Games, 6-time International Tournaments, 4-time Tournament of Champions, and many golds at both the US Open Pickleball Championships and Professional Pickleball Federation (PPF) tournaments. 

Here is what Jennifer said in reply to Carol’s post about Pickle Jam:

That made my week!

Jennifer and her mother, Beverly Youngren, have written a book about pickleball covering its history for the first fifty years: History of Pickleball: More Than 50 Years of Fun!

A special thank you to Carol for shamelessly promoting our event.

And another special thank you to Jennifer for her encouragement.

Pickleball players are the best!

UPDATE–Carol reached her goal of 50 players!
