“We are thrilled to open registration and kick off the countdown to the 2023 USA Pickleball National Championships, for our ever-growing community of passionate pickleball members chasing the rare opportunity to become a National Champion,” said Justin Maloof, Chief Operating Officer of USA Pickleball. “Congratulations to those who have already secured their spot in the competition, and we wish the best of luck to those competing at remaining Golden Ticket events. We are thrilled to welcome the best players in our sport to what will most certainly be an unforgettable player experience.”
