What is the GAMMA Pickleball Classic?

The GAMMA Pickleball Classic is an annual pickleball tournament featuring various styles of tournament play over the course of four days. Players with beginner to professional skillsets will face off in doubles throughout the tournament, with a $1,000 Moneyball tournament for co-ed teams. In addition to the pickleball tournament, we’ll have entertainment, food trucks, and outdoor activities for you and your teammates to enjoy.

How does the GAMMA Pickleball Classic work?

If you have never participated in a pickleball tournament or are not familiar with tournament-style play – don’t worry! All you need to do is register and show up – we’ll take care of the rest!

All amateur play will be round robin (pool play) with playoffs. All teams/players will play a minimum of 4 games. Round robins will consist of a minimum of 4 teams and a maximum of 6 teams. Top 4 teams/players will advance to a playoff. If a bracket consists of more than 2 pools of 6 teams/players, there is a potential for 6 teams/players to advance to playoffs. Scoring for round robin will be 1 to 15 by 2. Medal matches will be 2/3 to 11 by 2.

*Minimum/maximum teams subject to change based on registration.

Please keep in mind that tournament registrations for the GAMMA Pickleball Classic will be managed on a first come, first registered basis. This means that division limits may change throughout the tournament registration process. Please register for your bracket and we will slot you in accordingly.
