From 2100 players in 2022 to nearly 10,000 participants in 2023, the Amateur Pickleball Association has become one of the largest tours focused on the amateur player from 2.5-5.0.  The Mitten State Open will take place at the University of Michigan.  This event is open to all players from 2.5-5.0 with events broken down by skill level first and then age division dependent on the total number of teams/players registered within each skill level of play.  All teams/players will compete in a minimum of 5 games during each event with some divisions playing as many as 10-12 games based on the event format and number of teams in attendance.  Sign up for this tournament now to save your spot!

Registration Rates – Early Bird $65 for first event, $45 for second event and $25 for a third event available until July 1st.  $10 increase on each event at that time.

Schedule – formatting will typically have Doubles (8am+) on Saturday, Mixed Doubles (8am+) on Sunday, and Singles on one of the two days. The schedule may be modified by the director prior to the start of the event if deemed necessary.

Format – there is a 5 game guarantee in place though nearly all players will see 6+ games; single game round-robin matches played to 11, win by 2, for doubles; consolation brackets/games will maintain this format while the Gold/Silver/Bronze medal bracket transitions to a single game match to 15, win by 2.  Singles will include rally scoring to 21, win by 2, during all games.
