    Village Pickleball’s priority is to foster a fun & inclusive environment for all pickleballers. We organize and manage tournaments & games in a professional and efficient manner enable all players to:
    1. Have fun playing pickleball!
    2. Play to the best of each player’s ability.
    3. Meet new people that also love the sport.
    4. Play in an environment which allows players to learn and play even better pickleball.

    We strive to run efficient and fun tournaments and appreciate participants that are flexible with changing weather conditions or schedules so that we have a positive environment for all.

    Village Pickleball is successful when we see players:
    1) playing their best on the court,
    2) encouraging each other in the midst of competition, and
    3) talking & laughing (simply having fun) with our staff and other players off the court.
    We have a great community after all, don't we?
  • The tournament format will consist of a minimum of 3 pool play games (11 points, win by 1), followed by single elimination bracket play based on pool ranking. Ranking determined automatically by the website according to winning percentage > head to head > point difference. Bracket play will consist of the best 2 of 3 games (11 points, win by 2). 3rd games (if necessary) will be rally scoring in Round of 16 and Quarterfinal rounds, and regular scoring for Semi-final and Final rounds. All games are officiated by the individuals playing and must make their own calls. This is an unsanctioned tournament. Official tournament ball is the Franklin X40 outdoor ball. Balls will be provided and will be used for all games. There will be prizes for the top 3 finishers in each division, and prizes for Most Clever Team Name, Best Team Uniform and Most Fun to Play (voted on by participants). In the event of rain, we will make every effort to resume play as soon as possible within the timeframe of our court reservation. Players should plan to be available to play on Sept 18th or Sept 19th in the event of rain. Water Tower Park does have lights in the case of an extended rain delay. We will communicate all updates and any decisions with you during a rain delay via email or text. In some cases, if we are not able to resume play safely the event may be canceled and refunds will not be available. Refunds will also not be available if play times change due to weather and you or your partner are not available to play. Substitutions are allowed with approval from the tournament manager.
