San Jose Recap

Official p1440 San Jose Recap

The p1440 event series started off with a bang in San Jose! The 3-day event kicked off with a 24-team main draw including players from all around the world! Canadian team, Brandie Wilkerson and Heather Bansley battled back from a second-round loss to the hybrid-international team of Taiana Lima and Jolien Sinnema to win five straight matches, claiming gold over Brazilians Maria Antonelli and Carolina Salgado, 21-11, 21-17. Latvian team, Aleksandrs Samoilovs and Martins Plavins, rekindled their partnership for our opening event – due to Samoilovs’ normal partner, Janis Smedins, being out with an injury – and the two didn’t drop a single match, losing only one set the entire tournament, to Austrian Olympian Alexander Huber and Leo Williams.

The weekend was packed with a variety of health & wellness activities such as Art of Breath workshops with Brian Mackenzie, bootcamp workouts with Tommy Knox, yoga with Kim Bauman, mindful workouts with Kerry Wachtfogel, meditation with Hailey Lott, and more!

When the sun went down, the stage lit up with electrifying performances by Marian Hill and Grouplove on Friday, Daya and Foster the People on Saturday and Magic Giant on Sunday –reminding us to live playfully!
