Featured Members — David and Junior Sirionel


David and Junior Sirionel hail from Houston, TX, where David owned a tattoo and body piercing business.  They moved to Silverthorne in 2015, along with Junior’s two older brothers.  Father and son discovered pickleball at the Silvethorne Rec Center drop-in in January 2018 and fell in love with the game.

Just four months later, Junior won the advanced consolation round of SCPA’s April-is-Pickleball-Month fun tournament.  He and his father have been known to wear matching shirts and/or hats to drop-in play, and do a little dancing between games.

The Sirionels’ steep and rapid climb up the pickleball learning curve has been a joy to watch.

At age 17, Junior is the youngest member of SCPA. Pickles is hoping to convince him to enter the 2018 USAPA National Championships, November 3-11, 2018 near Palm Springs California.  Players age 8 to 18 are eligible to participate with no prerequisites.  And who knows?  He may be discovered by a sponsor!
