Each Championship team/player within their age group will be awarded a one of a kind Gainesville Indoor Pickleball Showcase “Champion T-Shirt.”
This Round Robin event will be based on age groups. We will divide each round robin event into age groups (40 & Under, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 71-80, 81-90, 90+) subject to sufficient entries. The “Open Division” is reserved for advanced players of any age. The “Beginners Division” is reserved for players who are new to the sport and have not played before. Round robin events with three or fewer teams will be combined. Signing up early is advisable. Preference for placement (if combined) will be given to teams who enter earliest.
All round robin events will play 1 game to 21 win by 2. If there is a tie between two teams/players in the same age group, there will be a playoff match that will consist of 1 game to 11 win by 2.
All doubles & mixed-doubles team’s placements will be determined by the youngest players age. Each age group will have a mix of skill levels to provide all players a great opportunity to grow upon their personal skills. All beginners will be placed as close to their age group as possible. The tournament director has the final authority to determine the event in which teams must play.
