Coming up June 15 and 16 Pickleball players from all over Minnesota and Iowa will arrive in Mankato for the "Swing Into Summer" Tournament at Tourtellotte Park.
  
The two day tournament is sponsored by the Mankato Area Public Schools Community Education and Recreation with help by the Mankato Area Pickleball Association to make the weekend not only about the competition.
  
"We start at 3 o'clock on Friday afternoon, and then when we're done we have party get-together which is sponsored by us. We've done that every year its been well attended and then Saturday morning we start at 9 o'clock. Friday is the mixed doubles, Saturday morning is the men's double and then after the men's doubles are done we do women's doubles," President of the Mankato Area Pickleball Association said.
