About the Tournament
The 2023 USA Pickleball National Championships will be held in Dallas for the first time, at Invited’s Brookhaven Country Club. The facility is one of the state’s premier golf and tennis resorts for more than six decades and situated as it is in the City of Farmers Branch, which is an inner-ring suburb of Dallas, was marked as the ideal locale to host an event of this size and prestige.
Upgrades planned for the 2023 National Championships include designating the street outside of Brookhaven Country Club as “Pickleball Boulevard” to make space for a stage, live music, and family-friendly activities with sponsors and local businesses. Food and beverage vendors from all over the state of Texas will be on-site as part of the “Taste of Pickle” exhibit that will give tournament attendees the chance to experience traditional southwestern cuisine. Nightly musical performances are planned for the tournament, as well as various interactive events surrounding the event to make the fan and player experience unforgettable.
2023 Participation Requirements (all players):
To participate in this year’s tournament, a player must have participated in at least one of the qualifying USA Pickleball-sanctioned events between June 28, 2022, and September 8, 2023. It is not necessary to have participated in one-for-one events. For example, if you played mixed in a sanctioned tournament, you are eligible to participate in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles.
Players with pre-registration invitations will be limited to one event of the same type per gold medal. For example, if a player wins a gold medal at the Great Lakes Regional in women’s doubles, that player will receive a pre-registration opportunity for women’s doubles (Note: it does not have to be the same skill or age).
