Each Championship team/player within their age group will be awarded a one of a kind Gainesville Indoor Pickleball Showcase “Champion T-Shirt.”
This event will be based on age groups only. We will divide each age group event into the following divisions (40 & Under, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 71-80, 81-90, 90+) and are subject to change depending on entries. The “Open Division” is reserved for advanced players of any age. Age Divisions 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.
The first team reaching 15 points will determine the winner for the seeding matches. The Single Elimination Championship Bracket: Matches will be played to 15 points, but must continue until a team achieves a 2-point margin. Teams will change sides of the court when the first team reaches 8-points.
Tie breakers for seeding:
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.
