A sanctioned pickleball event is an event that is recognized by governing bodies for pickleball. The results in the event are certified as correct, included in each player’s DUPR rating, and all medal contention matches are officiated by a certified pickleball official.
Who can play at the Pickleball Classic?
Each bracket of play is divided into age and level categories. There will be options for 19+, 40+, 50+, and 60+ at 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, and even 5.0.
If not enough players or teams register in a specific category, two divisions may be placed together, i.e. 50+ and 60+ could be combined.
