For those who have never attended a pickleball festival, doubles matches are organised and balanced according to ability. You may choose to play in a pair either as a gender doubles or a mixed doubles at anytime during the festival, although we do encourage you to play some matches with other picklers you don't know. It's a great way to socialise and meet players from all around the country! Players are able to decide when they wish to play or have a break.
If you do not yet have a rating, attending this festival is a unique opportunity to initiate your DUPR rating. We will explain how this works when we receive your registration form. There will also be a chance for those with DUPR ratings to also have their matches recorded, if they so wish.
