Welcome to The Pickleball Calendar (tm)

This calendar exists to help players to easily find unsanctioned pickleball tournaments. We think these more casual tournaments are important for several reasons:

  • Some tournaments are becoming cost prohibitive for some players.

  • There is more sandbagging ("legally" playing down in skill level) in sanctioned tournaments to receive medals and Golden Tickets to more prestigious tournaments.

  • In many unsanctioned tournaments, however, you'll find more participants playing at their skill level or playing up in skill level.

  • Often smaller pickleball tournaments are a great first step for players who are new to tournaments.

  • Unsanctioned pickleball tournaments can also be helpful for unrated players who truly don't know their skill level.

Also, it costs more than ever for Tournament Directors to list their sanctioned tournaments on popular pickleball tournament sites; this ultimately gets passed on to amateur players. And, some sites are also charging extra fees for each player per event on top of these increased fees.

So, we have created a solution for non-sanctioned pickleball tournaments such as:

  • Non-profit fundraising pickleball tournaments

  • Small, local pickleball tournaments

  • Round-robin or Queen/King of the Court pickleball tournaments
