As announced previously - The Dink Blog February 6th 2023: "Just in case you needed another acronym to memorize in the pro pickleball space: the Canadian National Pickleball League ("CNPL") officially launched as the country’s first professional pickleball league. The 2023 season kicks off with regional draft qualifying events for spots on eight teams, each with owners, similar to what we’ve seen from MLP."
According to the official CNPL website found here, events will be held in communities across Canada, streamed online. These live events will provide fun-filled and competitive tournaments for athletes, sponsors, and spectators to participate in. CNPL with its unique team play and prize money format, will be home to hosting Canada’s top ranked players while simultaneously developing and growing the next generation of amateur athletes aiming to compete at a professional level as the sport continues to evolve globally.
“Canada is bursting with talent that deserves to flourish; the CNPL will provide the opportunity for players to focus on their professional and skill development while simultaneously fostering the growth of the sport in Canada,” says Cameron Taylor, Co-Founder of CNPL and Founder and Head Teaching Professional of Taylored Pickleball Academy.
Team owners have yet to be announced (application forms for potential players, owners and sponsors are found on the website link above), but CNPL has announced the first four committed players: Jorge Quintero, Kim Layton, Brad Chapman, and Kim Brent.
Player application forms for qualifying events will be accepted beginning March 1st.
