World Pickleball Tour
March 22 - March 24
From March 22-24, 2024, we’ll be hosting another tournament at The Pickle Lodge, a beautiful, 17 court indoor venue in West Chester, OH!
ABOUT THE WPT
The World Pickleball Tour is a strictly amateur tournament series that hosted 25 events in 2023 and is hosting nearly 30 in 2024.
All of our tournament stops are considered “challenger” events, as all Gold Medalists from our circuit are invited to the 2025 WPT Amateur Invitational Championships, which will pit the best amateur players in the country against each other as they compete for their share of the $175,000 CASH PURSE at the event.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Skill/Age Brackets: 3.0-5.0; 19+, 30+, 40+, 50+, 60+ (70+ after registration close, if applicable). 18 and under can register for 19+.
Registration Perks: All players receive a WPT player swag bag: a reusable, branded tote that contains elevated giveaway items, hydration and nutrition essentials, court fashion accessories, other player necessities, and a World Tour DRIFIT t-shirt!
Format: This will be an unsanctioned, Round Robin-style event with 8 guaranteed matches (games to 11, win by 2).
Multiple Events/Same Day: Once registration closes and the schedule is created, players will have the opportunity to add another skill/age event to the same day of competition as long as the start times don’t conflict. Unsure of what level to play or wishing to test out your skills at the next level up, now you can play two events in a single day!
Winners: All gold medalists earn an invitation to the 2025 championship event with a $175k cash purse. Silver and bronze medalists will also earn a spot on the waitlist for the 2025 championship event as well as any participate of a WPT event (in that order).
Giveaways: The WPT will be providing sponsored giveaways that are raffled off at the event – from luxury bags to paddles and more!
When registering for DOUBLES, the second signed up teammate MUST register within 2 days of the first player. If a teammate does not register within the specified time limit then the first player will be placed on the waiting list automatically. Emails will go out to both players when this happens. Once the second teammate registers they will be moved off the waiting list IF there is still room in the event.
If a bracket reaches the initial 9-player/team limit, please add yourself to the waitlist. Brackets will be expanded up to 11-players/teams if there is space available in the event day. Brackets that do not max out at 11 could be combined to provide the best possible playing experience for all participants. The manner in which they would be combined will be determined at the close of registration. If brackets are combined, medals will be awarded based upon the skill/age category players registered for.
A registration fee ($70-100; depending on the period) and a per event fee ($30).
Will be posted on the tournament website on Monday, March 18, 2024 by 11:59p PST. WPT events run in waves (8a, 12p, and 4p). Brackets are assigned to times based upon number of registrants, therefore, times can not be established until registration closes. Players/teams will be permitted to sign-up for a 2nd bracket on the same day (the weekend after registration closes), if the times do not conflict.
