As registration proceeds, tournament management reserves the option to combine brackets as needed if brackets do not fill. If brackets are combined to create playable brackets, awards may be based on the original division and not the combined bracket. Brackets will be combined by age if possible to avoid combining skills. Tournament management also reserves the right to convert brackets to double elimination if necessary.
Skills levels include 2.5,3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5
Age groups are 18+, 35+, 50+, 60+, 70+
A team must play at the skill level of the higher rated player (or higher) and the age group of the younger player. Age is calculated as of 12/31/2023.
– Pickleball Bracket ratings will be used.
– For new players with no rating, the PickleballBrackets.com self rating will be used.
– Players who have official USAPA UTPR ratings but NO PickleballBrackets.com rating, MUST self rate using
their UTPR rating.
-Players with a UTPR that is higher than their Georgia Pickleball Association calculated tournament rating may be moved to the higher level at the discretion of the tournament director.
You may register and identify your partner or request “Need partner”. Your partner must register within five days of your registration or the team will be moved to the wait list. When the identified partner registers after the five day grace period, the team will automatically move from the wait list back to the active list if there is a slot available and both teams have paid. If a player needs a partner, the team will automatically move from the wait list to the active list once a partner is identified, registers, and both players have paid if there is an available slot to move to. NOTE: Your spot in the tournament is not guaranteed until your partner has registered and all fees have been paid in full.
There are no referees. Matches are self-monitored. If a referee is requested, we will do our best to provide one.
Refunds in the form of credits, less a $15 processing fee, will be issued for all cancellations regardless of the reason. These funds can be put towards the tournament fees of future events.
