This weekend on April 27th and 28th, the Niagara Pickleball Association (NPBA) will be holding its 3rd Smash for Cash Event at the Ballhockey.com Haig Bowl Arena in St.Catharines, ON.
The NPBA ran its first Smash for Cash event back in September with only 16 players and followed it up with a 2nd event in December that featured 32 players. The 3rd event will feature over 65 players of all ages in the 3.5 and 4.0+ skill levels who are all competing for their share of the $1800+ prize pool over 5 events.
The tournament will feature a lot of talent coming from all over Niagara, New York, Pennsylvania and the Golden Horseshoe area including the four 4.0+ finalists from the 2nd Smash for Cash event coming back to try to win more money.
