This is our first time with women’s doubles age groups so a lot of how the tournament runs will depend on the number of teams that enter. We may do a double elimination but I would rather stick to the round robin format if enough teams enter. The two age groups are the standard we have used in other tournaments.
To encourage new players, we have added a Novice or beginners group. This is for those new players to pickleball that would like to compete but are not at the skill level of our more experienced players. I reserve the right to decide if a team is truly a Novice or could compete adequately in the regular age groups. Losing is not a bad thing but we would like teams to feel they can be competitive.
