VeeFriends, the popular NFT community project created by Gary Vee, is launching a unique event at the Major League Pickleball Austin tournament.

VeeFriends at Major League Pickleball Austin
This huge three-day event will provide a chance for VeeFriends owners to enjoy and embrace the sport of Pickleball. Notably, Pickleball is a combination of several racket sports and has grown in popularity in the United States.
The tournament will see twelve professional teams face off against each other. Each team consists of two men and two women. Matches consist of a women’s doubles game, a men’s doubles game, and two mixed doubles games. In addition, the finals will play live on CBS Sports Network.
“Creating opportunities and unique experiences for the VeeFriends Community is at the core of the VeeFriends project’s mission and vision,” said Andy Krainik, President of VeeFriends. “We are proud to continue to have VeeFriends be a pioneer in guiding how IP owners can execute meaningful NFT projects successfully to deliver the most value to their communities.”
Indeed, the Dreamland three-day event includes fun for everyone. There will be curated wine, beer and local food, mini-golf and other fun activities, art exhibitions and live entertainment. Alongside the Pickleball tournament, there are many activities for the VeeFriends owners to explore.
Significantly, this is the first utility usage for specific Series 2 VeeFriends holders. Owners of the Competitive Clown character and Pickleball Court background NFTs are eligible for the experience.
