Alshon out, Duong in for Ranchers at MLP D.C.

DALLAS, TX - Quang Duong will compete for the Texas Ranchers in place of an injured Christian Alshon at MLP D.C., the team announced Wednesday on social media.


Duong will join forces with Pablo Tellez, Etta Wright, and Tina Pisnik as the team prepares to compete in the second Major League Pickleball event of the year.

The Ranchers currently sit at 2-2 and are averaging 1.5 standings points per match, a mark that puts them at fifth place after the first event in Atlanta.

They’ll play five more matches this week in the nation’s capital, beginning with a clash against the Utah Black Diamonds Friday at 10am ET.

This is the second event of the summer that Alshon has had to withdraw from due to injury. His next chance to compete will be at the Select Medical Orange County Cup presented by FitVine Wine set to take place June 24-30.
