Tournament Format:

  • USA Pickleball Rules apply
  • The 12 Men’s and Women’s teams will be divided into two six team divisions and will play round robin matches within their skill level pools. 
  • Each team will play five matches comprised of two games to 11 points, win by one as long as there are six teams in the division.
  • Saturday and Sunday start times and court assignments will be preassigned once registration closes and will be posted to the NMB website no later than August 18, 2021.
    1. Match starting times are estimates and actual start times may vary.  Court assignments do not change.
  • Winning teams in each division will be the team with the most wins.  Tie breakers will be first, head to head play, then least points given up, and finally a coin flip.
  • Tournament format is very popular because it provides significantly more play than a double elimination tournament.
