Saturday, we get sporty with some friendly competition. If you haven’t heard, softball’s not the only lesbo game anymore—pickleball is the latest lesbo craze! Pickleball Tournament takes place on Saturday, April 1st (April Fool’s Day), run by pro-lesbian tourney director Mary Barsaleau. It comprises two slots, rotating partners, which allow participants to enter by themselves and switch doubles partners each round. The other slot is played with your partner; participants enter with their partners and play against other teams.

About The Dinah


So… The parties don’t really have anything to do with golf. But it all started back in the day when the lesbians flocked to the desert to watch the LPGA golf tournaments at Mission Hills. Parties ensued, and it grew into the biggest lesbian weekend in the world. Well, times changed, and the Club Skirts Dinah parties moved to September and the LPGA tournament moved to Texas. The end of an era? Hell no! We are here, we are queer and we still wanna play!

A different Dinah Party Weekend includes several events and activities starting with the Cocktail Kickoff Friday 5pm-8pm, followed by a Pickleball Tournament Saturday, and the Main Event Saturday night– DINAH ROCKS, a killer concert with state-of-the-art lights and sound, featuring top-notch female talent. A Sunday Blues Brunch and a final closing party will wrap up this amazing weekend.

For those of you who do enjoy watching golf and follow the pros- to our delight, we have learned that the Legends of the LPGA, the official senior tour of the LPGA, will be presenting the Legends Tour Desert Championship golf tournament in 2024, featuring senior golfers like Patty Sheehan, Nancy Lopez and more. Long live Dinah, and welcome seniors!
