Hey Pickleball players! I wanted to do a couple of events for singles players. Most pickleball is for doubles players but I’ve heard of quite a few of you that love singles too (myself included).
The goal of these events is to pair players up in similarly skilled singles players and battle it out in a mini tournament. There won’t be many bells and whistles for this event such as prizes and what not. But there will be plenty of play. It’s likely that everyone will play a round robin with their mini group of similarly skilled players.
I won’t know the specific format until I see who all signs up but I do know that each player will get 3+ matches.
We are starting these events in the morning in hopes to beat the heat. Bring lots of water and a good attitude 🙂
Note – Each event is limited to 16 players because I want to fill up the courts without requiring people to wait around a long time in between matches. However, you can still have breaks as you need in between those tight matches with your fiercest rival!
Where Will these Singles Pickleball Event be Held?
The Pickleball events I am hosting will take place at the following address:
Austin Tennis and Pickleball Center
7800 Johnny Morris Rd
Austin, TX 78724
When Will the Singles Event be?
Here are the dates and times for the upcoming Pickleball events:
- Singles Players 4.0 and above – Sunday, June 30th from 9am until about 12pm
- Singles Players 3.5 and below – Sunday, July 7th from 9 am until about 12pm
Please note that the events above are separated by skill level. It’s likely that you will fit into the 4.0 and above category if you have played a lot of Pickleball singles or have a really strong tennis singles background.
If you haven’t played much singles or are not confident with ground strokes and mobility, then you will probably fit into the 3.5 and below group.
Let me know when you signup where you think you stand as far as singles play goes so I can group you with similarly skilled players.

The cost is $10 for the event. (Max 16 players). You can pay me with cash, venmo, check or credit card.
