Here’s a lighthearted look at 13 significant numbers from the US Open Pickleball Championships played last week in Naples, FL.
$126,350 − The total prize money that was on offer for the whole tournament. This figure included the Triple Crown bonuses of $1,000 for the men’s, women’s, men’s senior, and women’s senior event. The winners had to win three gold medals in the singles, doubles, and mixed doubles categories.
35,000 (or more) − The minimum number of spectators estimated to have attended the matches held at the East Naples Community Park, 3500 Thomasson Drive, Naples, FL 34112.
$12,600 – The highest payout for a match was $12,600 to the winners of the three doubles titles (men’s, women’s, and mixed).
5,100 − The approximate number of games that were played during the tournament. It’s also about how many Franklin X-40 balls were used.
Celebrating our gold medal winners and giving heartfelt thanks to EVERYONE that played, cheered, volunteered, and showed your love for the US Open Pickleball Championship.
