Read a recent article from The Globe and Mail: "Move over, tennis players: Pickleball people are taking over the courts".
Pickleball Canada is seeking expressions of interest from clubs or groups of clubs who want to work together to host a National, Open or Regional Championship in the next five years. Championships will alternate annually between East and West with the Manitoba/Ontario border being the dividing line. The Open and National Championships will occur annually on opposite sides of the country. E.g. if the 2022 National Championship is held in the East, the Open Championship will be held in the West.
Interested parties must be able to meet the following tournament requirements:
§ minimum of 20 courts (some exceptions possible),
§ minimum of 3 days of play,
§ all matches must be officiated,
§ Pickleball Brackets must be used for the tournament software,
§ dates of a National, Regional, Open, or Provincial/Territorial event must not conflict with any other National or Open event held in the same year.
