The USA Pickleball Diamond Amateur Championship will be held Dec. 3-10, 2023 and hosted by Pictona at Holly Hill in Florida—one of the nation’s finest facilities, featuring 49 courts.

Diamond Amateur Championship gold medalists will earn Golden Tickets—the ability to pre-register—for the 2024 USA Pickleball National Championships.


All events, including singles, will offer a pool-play format. If there are not enough teams for pool play, then a round-robin bracket will be played.

The top-four teams (from each pool or round-robin bracket) will move forward to the next round.

All pool-play matches, as well as all pre-medal matches, will be one game to 15, win by two points. The medal matches will be best two-out-of-three games, win by two points.

The gold-medal winners of each event will earn a Golden Ticket to the 2024 USA Pickleball National Championships.

This is a MMP format with our goal to have referees for all matches.

For a CONFIRMED spot in an event, both partners must be registered and paid. Players without partners or whose partners have not registered and paid within 1 day of their signup, will be moved to the waiting list. Once their partner signs up, they will be moved back into the event - IF THERE ARE SPOTS REMAINING IN THE BRACKET AND THE TOURNAMENT.

  • The Dink Minor League
    July 13, 2024 All day

    The future of pickleball is NOW: Minor League Pickleball is sweeping the nation with its innovative, fun and social amateur MLPlay™ Team Event.


    Minor League Pickleball is an innovative team competition where teams of 4 players (2 women and 2 men) compete against each other in an engaging format, with twists on traditional match-ups and scoring for games, matches, and tiebreakers. Teams compete against each other in Matches using the MLPlay™ format:

    MLPlay™ is an ingenious gameplay format that brings men and women together on a level playing court. In the MLPlay™ format team matches are composed of four 21-point games, one women’s doubles, a men’s doubles, and the final two games consisting of mixed doubles. If both teams are tied at 2-2 after the 4 games are played, they’ll go to a Dreambreaker™! In a Dreambreaker™ one person from each team plays singles against the other team’s player, switching players every four rallies until someone gets to 21 and wins by two points.


    For the full Minor League Pickleball rules: https://www.dupr.com/minorleague/rules

    Once a team registers for a Minor League Pickleball event, their ratings are “locked” and their DUPR increasing or decreasing will not impact the team’s aggregate or division placement.
    To sign up for any Minor League event, a DUPR account is required at the time of registration. Not rated players can play; however, their estimated rating will be verified by the tournament director.

    Substitute Players

    A team that needs a player substitute can either edit their team by signing into Swish and making the edits themselves or a player may submit the player substitute information directly to the tournament organizer. Substitute player’s DUPR may not cause the established team’s aggregate to go over max event’s aggregate.
