Week 9 pits the 2-1 Tempe Tornadoes vs. the 2-1 Peoria Pythons.
Both teams are a lock for the playoffs.
In fact, these two teams are likely to face each other in the playoffs as the 2 & 3 seed, though that's not guaranteed.
But how might this likelihood affect the strategy in Week 9?
Will either team try to sandbag and hold back some fancy moves to save those for the playoffs?
Or will they both play their hearts out in order to gain a mental competitive edge if/when they meet again for the playoffs?
(My guess is the latter. ;-)
And that’s the beauty of the Arizona Pickleball League… all the story lines and possibilities that take place as we wind our way towards the close of the regular season, and prepare for the playoffs!
The Tornadoes: Malia Lum (subbing for Jen Tavernier who is out sick), Dana Raugust, Cooper Frat, and Kyle Koszuta.
The Pythons: Lauren Mercado, Rachel Rettger, Patrick Kawka, and Michael Lloyd.
HOW TO WATCH: Livestreaming on YouTube – Tue Nov 21 @ 8pm ET / 6pm AZ time / 5pm PT.
