Each age group will have a National Senior Games
Qualifying Event (Open event) and "normal" age group event (Non-Open event)
The Open event is intended for the higher level players but
any skill level player may enter.
The Non-Open event is intended for the lower level players
so they would enjoy playing with other players in about the same level.
5.0 and 4.5 skill level players will not be allowed to join this event.
No on-site registration is authorized.
Participants may enter only one event per day.
Pickleball participants may not enter other sports scheduled
at the same time.
There will be no refunds for rain days, but we are
trying to set up an indoor facility just in case.
Players cannot play down into a lower rated event.
The Tournament Director has the right to determine ratings for
non-rated players. Check with USAPA.org
for your rating. If you do not have one then you may request
one by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Match scoring will be determined by the number of entries
in each event. Events may be double elimination matches
with games played, Best 2 out of 3 games played to 11 points
for winner’s bracket and one game played to 15 points for the
loser bracket (subject to change).
Events with too few teams may be combined with another
age group or do round robin.
The Pickleball Inc Dura 40 ball will be used for this tournament,
but subject to change.
