Malta’s first-ever pickleball team had a near-perfect start to their international commitments as they won silver in the ladies’ doubles, and bronze in the men’s doubles over the weekend at the Spanish Open.
Steffi Pace, who spearheaded the group and was part of the ladies duo had told the Times of Malta ahead of the tournament that the side’s expectations were not set high, however, such a result will definitely be a shot in the arm for future competitions.
While Malta won bronze and Silver, they also went close in the mixed doubles as Pace and Malcolm Falzon reached the quarter-finals.
Men’s Doubles Intermediate level Mark Anastasi and Tony Thompson – BRONZE MEDAL
Ladies Doubles Advanced level Steffi Pace and Roberta Girard – SILVER MEDAL
Mixed Doubles Advanced level Steffi Pace and Malcolm Falzon – Quarter-finals
