Inviting all Pictona and local community members to participate in the inaugural Martens Cup tournament 2021!
The Martens Cup is named after Pictona founders Julie and Rainer Martens. The goal of the Martens Cup is to provide a fun environment where participants can meet other members while enjoying a variety of different activities at Pictona. Twice a year, participants will have the opportunity to compete for the Martens Cup by playing in a variety of fun events. There will be a Winter Martens Cup tournament (February/March 2021) and a Fall Martens Cup tournament (August/September).
