WORLD SERIES OF P I C K L E

"Luck of the Draw"

The Inaugural World Series of P I C K L E® (WSOPb.net®) – the richest, most anticipated Pickleball Doubles event of all time will be held March 2023 in Boca Raton, FL on 30 courts OPEN* to all ages and genders.  

1024 players, Pros and Amateurs alike, will participate as individual entrants in a doubles format where each player will play once with each other in their randomly drawn Pod.

Based on the Pod size of 4 or 8, the top one or two players will advance to the next round.  Each Pod will have its own designated court(s) until all games are completed, so players will not have to wait longer than 10 minutes between matches. 

Players will start Round 1 in Pods of 4 then expand to Pods of 8 for Rounds Two thru Four until the Final 4 Court.   

After 27 total games over 4 days, one Champion will take home the largest prize in Pickleball History of $100,000 and the prestigious Gold First Serve Bracelet.
