WPF World Pickleball Games is the first true team competition in pickleball, where each competing country’s federation selects a minimum of 8 players (4 men, 4 women) & maximum of 12 players plus a coach to represent their country in the competition.
This competition demonstrates that pickleball is getting ready for the Olympics.
The team format consists of men’s doubles and singles, women’s doubles and singles, along with mixed doubles.
Pickleball has always been represented by both men and women in tournaments. WPF will continue to reinforce this tradition in team competition as it is unique to pickleball.
World Pickleball Day has been designed to increase awareness of pickleball and introduce the game to new players, globally.
This is WPF’s first grass roots initiative giving federations, clubs and players access to a tool-box of materials to promote and manage World Pickleball Day locally.
We have a goal to attract 10,000 new players to the game from World Pickleball Day.
We hope to do that by engaging as many countries as possible to participate at the club and player level and helping us to create 1 million social media engagements. This will help create awareness of the game across the world and encourage people to try to the game on 10.10.20.
