Players must self-rate and teams must play at the skill level of the HIGHEST rated player using their USA Pickleball Tournament Player Rating (UTPR) if available. This is a team event, each player must register separately and list their partner or indicate that you need a partner.  

Bracket slots will be filled with the first teams to have BOTH players registered and paid. Listed partners of players who are registered will have 7 days to register to hold their slot. Each player must register individually. If a player registers for an event and their partner does not register within 7 days, then the original registered player is moved to the waiting list.  If your teammate then registers and there is still room in the event, then both are moved from the waiting list and into the event.  Once the bracket is full, incomplete teams, teams not fully paid, and additional registrants will be placed on a waitlist. Waitlisted individuals/teams will be notified in the order in which they registered as space becomes available.

Medals will be awarded to first, second and third place finishers in each skill bracket.

*The Tournament Director reserves the right to modify the event format as needed based on the registrations. Events may be split or merged as needed based on registration numbers.

Participants are required to be at least 12 years old by December 31, 2024

Refunds will be available up to 2 weeks before the tournament registration closing. All refunds will be charged a $15 processing fee.

This is an outdoor tournament. If events are cancelled due to inclement weather, they are not guaranteed to be made up. No refunds for cancellations related to weather or other events beyond the control of the Tournament Director.

No refunds or credits will be given for any reason after the Cancellation Deadline.
