Status: USAPA Sanctioned Tournaments

As USAPA continues to monitor the national emergency over the coronavirus pandemic, effective immediately USAPA is suspending USAPA sanctioning of existing pickleball tournaments through April 15, 2020. The health and safety of all is our foremost concern. The complete list of USAPA sanctioned tournaments during this period is located at the end of this statement.
 
The events listed below are owned and managed by third-party tournament organizers who have received USAPA tournament sanctioning. We are doing our best to keep communication open and current with these sanctioned tournament organizers. While the USAPA is withdrawing official sanctioning of these tournaments, the decision to postpone, cancel, or proceed with the tournaments in a “non-sanctioned mode” is determined at the discretion of the tournament director and their leadership team.
 
Despite the suspension of USAPA sanctioning, tournament directors are encouraged to follow the recommendations and mandates of local health and government officials and take the health and safety of all players and tournament personnel into consideration.  We encourage everyone to err on the side of caution and cancel or postpone their tournaments and events for at least the next 30 days. For additional information about the below tournaments and all other USAPA sanctioned tournaments, please visit www.PickleballTournaments.com
 
The next scheduled USAPA Regional Championship is the Mountain Regional, May 22-27, followed by the USA Pickleball National Indoor Championships, June 9-13. These two events, as well as all remaining Regional Championships and the National Championships in Indian Wells, CA, remain scheduled as planned. We will be closely monitoring the coronavirus situation and make sanctioning and scheduling determinations as more information on the crisis becomes available.

Please bookmark this page and check back regularly, the USAPA will be updating this page on our website as developments unfold: https://www.usapa.org/usa-pickleball-statement-on-the-coronavirus/ 
 
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
