Chicken N Pickle‘s San Antonio location will hold a Father’s Day pickleball tournament with a couple of dad-tastic twists.

Yep, that’s a tournament rule. The restaurant also will award prizes to those who embody the essence of Dad with their outfits, so competitors may want to don their socks and sandals before hitting the courts.
