The results are in and the “Pickleball King” of St. Simons Island has been crowned. In a thrilling one game singles final Jonathan Haney defeated Jay Flexer for title “King of St. Simons Island Pickleball.” The doubles partners faced each other in the singles final after defeating Danny Moore and Justin Whitlow in a semifinal match before winning the finals match against Dan Moore (no relation to Danny Moore) and Joe Faillace. Moore and Faillace defeated Justin Davidson and Tony Aloi in the other semifinal to advance to the final.
