You are invited to attend the 16th Annual Silicon Alley Golf Invitational & the first-ever Silicon Alley Pickleball Invitational. The invite-only event is on May 8 & is graciously supported by Bain Capital, The Buddy Group, & Hunt Club.
Join entrepreneurs, founders, venture & PE investors, executives, & digital ecosystem supporters outside the office or boardroom & on the field or court. Hundreds of folks have joined us in years past, & we are looking forward to a solid showing in 2023.
There are 68 slots for golf, 20 for pickleball, & 30 for folks who want to attend our luncheon, networking, & keynote.
Each participating player will choose golf or pickleball; unfortunately, you cannot play both.
As with all our Silicon Alley Sports events, we handle the pairing of all attendees. We do our best to make each team competitive & help facilitate networking & making the most out of the event. This is our signature differentiator, & it helps everyone meet new folks.

We cannot control the weather; we plan to play in most scenarios. If there is a storm, heavy rain, or lightning, we cannot play & will look to reschedule the event. We will play if there is light rain or off/on rain throughout the day. We will monitor the weather closely, & in the event of bad weather, we will notify everyone the evening prior.
