There are a number of great pickleball tournaments in places across Atlanta. For amateurs, check out the Atlanta Amateur Open. Pros can compete at the renowned APP Atlanta Metro Open.
Tournaments in Atlanta
The PPA Atlanta open is an event on the PPA tour. The pro singles event is a double elimination with no come around, leading to a gold medal match for the grand prize.
This is a pro mixed event, which means that there is both a senior pro and amateur event taking place at the same time (both of which are double elimination events with a come around).
There is a $70 registration fee to take part in this event, which takes place at Lifetime Fitness Peachtree Corners.
The Atlanta Amateur open is an APA (Amateur Pickleball Association) event taking place at the Georgia Institute of Technology Tennis Club.
It is worth noting that this tournament has a no refund policy in event of cancellation.
The Atlanta Metro Open is a pro event that forms part of the APP Tour. As a qualifying event, all gold medal winners will get a golden ticket through to the USA Pickleball Nationals of that year.
This is a pro mixed event, with amateur tournaments running alongside the professional matches. Thursday hosts the pro singles, Friday the pro mixed doubles, and Saturday the pro gender doubles, with all of the gold medal matches being played on a fantastic, action packed championship Sunday!
With a purse of $65,000, this is an event not to be missed by pros and spectators alike. The last event featured players such as Tod Parris, Federico Staksrud, Haley Collins, and JW Johnson.
Tournaments Outside Atlanta
Another pro event, this time with a slightly smaller prize fund at $5,000, the Doublegate Spring Classic is a double elimination pickleball tournament taking place at Doublegate Country/Pickleball Club in Albany.
The Savannah Pickleball Classic is a tournament sanctioned by the World Pickleball Tour (WPT). It offers small cash prizes at close of play on championship Sunday, with a maximum payout of $125 per winning team member.
If six or more teams are entered, the tournament becomes a double elimination bracket. If fewer players are playing, it will be a round robin style pickleball tournament.
The tournament takes place over three days: women’s doubles and men’s singles on the Friday, mixed doubles on the Saturday, and men’s doubles plus women’s singles on the Sunday. As with all WPT events, this is a pickleball tournament aimed at players of skill level 3.5 and over.
