The Inaugural "Fall" into Paddle ladies event was held on October 21 with a full field of 56 women coming out to support the Tiffany Foundation in their efforts to support women living with breast cancer as they battle this disease.

$3000+ was raised through the event. Tiffany Foundation Executive Director Corie Floth reports: "Some of the money is going to a local woman who has been fighting inflammatory breast cancer for 4 years....and needs help with paying medical deductible, prescription deductibles....to name just a few."

The event was held at two sites, HPCC and KCC, was a round robin format with lots of door prizes and prizes for ladies with the highest number of points followed by lunch at KCC. 

Thanks to Beth Agin, Mary Kirk, Beth Wright, Heather Prop and their volunteers for making this event possible!

On October 22nd , Cincinnati Country Club hosted a free APTA Junior Clinic in Cincinnati.
Pros Thaddeus Reed, Brian Faig, Tyler Fraser, and Lee Lonergan put the 25 participants through 2 hours of drills and match play.
It was a great way to kick off the junior paddle season!
