SEATTLE, July 15, 2021 — PickleballTournaments.com and USA Pickleball have agreed to an extension of their partnership through 2023 in support of growing the game of Pickleball. In support of this continued partnership, PickleballTournaments.com will be:
- Paying the USA Pickleball sanctioning fee for sanctioned tournaments running on PickleballTournaments.com
- Reducing the PickleballTournaments.com per player software access fee by 50% for sanctioned tournaments
