The APP Tour is set to return to the Delray Beach Tennis Center from April 3 to 7, and the opening of registration for the event has been announced.
The five-day event will feature high-level competition for amateurs, with a substantial prize pool at stake for the professional category.
Various Skill Levels
The 2024 APP Vlasic Classic will cater to various skill levels, from 3.0 through 5.0, including those playing at the professional level, across diverse age categories.
Interested amateur and professional players can secure their spots by registering on theapp.global until March 24. Notably, as a premier APP Tour event, these pro players will vie for a portion of the impressive $100,000 prize pool.
As we reported recently, the Association of Pickleball Players (APP) has announced an extension with partner Vlasic® Pickles to continue as the official pickle partner of the APP.
