Helping people with mental health because it's a way for them just to like not think about anything and just go out and have fun you know helping each other emotionally and we're a true team we don't argue we don't fight and I think that's why we've been so successful foreign.

Doubles Champion Annalee Waters her mother Lee Waters brilliant brilliant pickleball from the mother-daughter combo congratulations that is as good as it gets so happy I was here to uh call it alongside.

the best of Mother Nature and the best and pickleball coming together here this weekend here at the tennis club at Newport Beach 41 courts 880 players all vying for championships.

Spring is finally here and so is the new era of pickleball Newport Beach is the Battleground foreign foreign ladies and gentlemen pickleball friends.

Welcome back to the beard wealth management PPA Texas open Live from Rockwall Texas we're about 30 minutes outside the Dallas area at the Oasis pickleball Club formerly The Oasis tennis and pickleball Club but a testament to the growth of pickleball this club is transformed into a pickleball specific facility beautiful.

Courts around the grounds here we are bringing you all live action from the pro mixed doubles day this is Clark Benassi and I'm excited to be here super thankful to have a wonderful match up right in front of my eyes and to be bringing it to you all today so without further Ado here we go it is the.

Iceman AJ Kohler and his longtime partner Cali Smith taking on Tyler loong and Anna bright expected to be a very close matchup if you guys aren't familiar with uh you guys and girls aren't familiar with the weather with what's been happening today had some tornado warnings some wind had some rain we've moved our Championship.

Core from outside to inside there's an industrial roof here on the grounds that covers eight courts so we are on one of those courts and here we go it's a backdrawal match to 15 win by two we'll switch sides at eight points yeah and it's a good start from Cali and AJ you may be sitting there thinking uh.

You know maybe not as big of a deal they're not playing in the winners bracket for first folks it doesn't matter this is still a huge match if you can grab bronze well there's a lot of Fame that comes with if there's some money that comes with it so these players are gonna fight to the better end.

Wow and it's a great attack by Cali well done from her she went for broke there left her side of the court open but did enough put enough on the ball to make Anna bright work for it and off to a quick 2-0 lead yeah and that's well placed from Tyler AJ's return is gonna sail a little wide.

A little Shake of the head but of course they've got to get it right back to it one three yeah it's well done for AJ and talk about a player that's really come on to the scene and a bright the former Cal tennis standout has just been exploding in the world of pickleball as of recent.

And it is amazing as that thing goes into the net from Tyler to see a player like her transition into the game of pickleball and now completely go pickleball no more tennis for her AJ's serve goes into the net and you know that's a trend we're seeing in the.

Pickleball world nowadays so many tennis players using their Foundation and their skills to transition into such a fast-growing the fastest growing sport in pickleball and not going back to tennis Travis retmar another one of those Players whose match I was commentating earlier he was a big time tennis player no longer playing tennis.

And it's too good from Anna and Tyler sharp hands sharp footwork at the kitchen line to put that ball away we've got one through one and returns gonna go a bit long every Point matters a little bit more here when it's just one game to 15 so expecting to see both teams extremely disciplined and tight but.

That's another great attack from Anna bright on the forehand side just doubt it AJ's feet that's a tough one to get yeah and that dink's gonna sail wide little uncharacteristic from AJ oh man oh man and AJ says to himself everything is out he's got to just forget about it.

Move on to the next one that's so important in pickleball you miss a shot you make a mistake just to forget about it and move on unbelievable Hands by all four players on the court Tyler with a little smile there you love to see the players even in such a high stake matchup having fun and enjoying.

Themselves oh and Tyler's forehand just caught it too heavily a clinical overheads by both AJ and Cali they'll be serving here at 351. up the drop from AJ was gonna clip the line went a little bit wide yeah and it's a good speed up from the Kohler and Smith camp and we've got.

Four five one my apologies four five two yeah just a little bit flat he kind of came at it on the side versus lifting and that's such a key on the third shot drop is to lift the ball rather than push it wow what an attack from Anna bright right near the.

Face neck area of Cali Smith of course it wasn't malicious that's just a smart play and a difficult ball to defend and Callie's gonna want that one back she makes that nine times out of ten sitting at seven four one Anna lets out it scream she wants that one back too oh.

How she went for that middle attack not a bad idea at all just caught it a little too heavily okay wow and it was the net core that started that firefight Exchange very aggressive points to start off this match not a lot of dinking that was one.

Of the more heavily dinking involved points but the netcord popped the ball up and the fire fighting sued wow it's just such a game of inches ladies and gentlemen I mean balls from all four players clearing the net by a matter of centimeters it seems.

And that again is why you get so many net cords it's because these players are so precise with their balls with their attacks yeah and so smart from Anna again it's perfectly okay to sit on the side of the kitchen and wait for a ball to pop up to your paddle very smart play from her.

Ah Tyler wants that one back he had a couple earlier points in the winners bracket that I think he would have liked to have had back I'm sure he's replayed a few of those in his head yeah ice cool from AJ to hold his ground continue resetting shot after shot rolling shots back into the feet of.

Tyler and Anna and then Cali came across to help him out and finish the point off all right five seven one here once a team gets to eight we will switch sides Tyler's forehand was just too much there wow great all-around point there gets an Applause from the crowd.

The Iceman was up to the test yeah it's well done from AJ and we talk about the the threat of just knocking a ball down at your opponent's feet and he does that better than anybody yeah too much I love the first drive from him but would have liked to have seen a drop there into the kitchen just.

Caught it a little too heavily at 771. foreign wow back and forth exchange goes the way of Cali Smith and AJ Kohler gonna be a second serve here the drive will sail into the net we switch serves again.

You did you wow you've got to be kidding me unbelievable point from all four players you can sense how much both of these teams want this match we're at 772 no one has yet to get to the uh the famous Snowman the eight on the scoreboard.

Which will cause a side change and Cali caught it a little too heavy oh just a matter of inches I mean that's what this game is a couple inches high a couple inches low a couple inches wide is what makes or breaks these points and these players ladies and gentlemen.

Don't miss by much that's for sure foreign such a good job of continuously rolling that ball at the feet of his opponents and they'll be the first to get the side change here it's 8-7 AJ Kohler and Cali Smith lead Tyler loong and Anna Brighton if you all are just joining us this is Clark Benassi bringing you all live.

Action from the pro mixed doubles draw we are in the back draw here so this game is 1-15 we've switched sides at eight and this is the PPA Texas open presented by beard wealth management we're in Rockwall Texas just outside of Dallas at the Oasis pickleball club and we've moved our Championship court because of.

Rainy and windy conditions underneath the industrial roof here that covers eight of the Courts at the Oasis pickleball Club Championship court is now on court 34. as you see the sign on the net certainly a bit of a different feel than Championship core we've got a couple matches and a couple players practicing.

To the sides we've still got some fans off the screen to your left and behind Anna bright and Tyler loong as well and Loom and bright to receive trailing 87. yeah it's too good from Anna she gives a let's go to the fan club Behind her she's trying to get herself pumped up.

And that's how so many of these players play better is when they give themselves their fans to come on and let's go a fist pump we'll see if they can get it going here oh and Tyler's slice backhand dink that he's so accustomed to making Falls a little bit short wow.

that's a great shot into the corner from Tyler loong just caught the line there and made it difficult on Cali Smith that's a lovely drop from Anna bright wow unbelievable sequence but Anna and Tyler fighting till the bitter ended coming out on top of that.

Point sitting at 991 here and AJ's return to his dismay we'll fall into the net we've got Anna bright and Tyler loong leading this match now 10-9 on the first serve and another.

Missed return as Tyler says keep rolling and they're going to cause AJ and Cali to take a timeout again this is a backdraw match so we're playing just one game to 15 ladies and gentlemen not two out of three to 11. it means every Point means a little bit more but Tyler and Anna.

Handling themselves exceptionally well right now on Championship Court as you can see we've got Lucy and Matt Wrights off to the right side playing Elise Jones and Spencer Smith and another cracker of a match what's sticking right here we've got Tyler and Anna bright.

Leading AJ Kohler and Cali Smith in a game to 15. we've got 11 9 1. yeah Tyler thought he was going to come across and poach that wasn't quite there so he backed off made it a little bit difficult for Anna to adjust and she ended up unfortunately popping it up but.

Fortunately for Cali and AJ that's so good from Cali hitting a very flat ball attacking the body of Tyler until she found one she could hit downwards on yeah that return's gonna go slightly wide Anna asks the referee to confirm wow unbelievable playing from Tyler.

And ladies and gentlemen the wind the rain has picked up we do have a tornado warning things have gotten worse and we'll take a quick break and be right back alive right now oh Lord have mercy.

foreign ERS tomorrow in the final they're known for the distinctive banging style what do you do against a team like that I mean we have to be ready they their game style works I mean they they they're in the finals for a reason.
