Gobble Gobble! Come out for an evening of paddle and….turkey hunting? at the 2013 WPTC Turkey Shootout on November 25th & 26th!

For this round robin event I will be attaching one turkey target to each of the screens on both sides of the court. If you or your partner hit a turkey, you automatically win the game! Competitors will receive a different partner every round and play six games total, 5-1, 3-3, etc. No add scoring will be played throughout the evening. Once all of the points are totaled up from each round, the top four point leaders will compete for the title.

Pro Tip: Use your finesse when going for the turkey target placed on the back screen. If you get too aggressive and miss it, be ready to get STUFFED like a turkey by your opponent!
