iPN 3-Player Team Pickleball Tournament

View Calendar


iPN 3 Team Pickleball is an innovative MLP-style team competition where teams of 3 same gender players compete against each other in an engaging format with twists on traditional match-ups and scoring for games and matches.

iPN 3 Team Pickleball team matches are composed of three, 21-point games, rally scoring. To win, a team must win by two and must have served to win.

At the start of each match, there will be a coin toss (or similar random selection). The winner will make a choice between these three options:

  • Choose to be either the Home or the Away team
  • Choose to start each game serving or receiving
  • Choose which end of the court to start

After the winner makes a choice, the loser will make a choice between the two remaining options. After the loser makes their choice, the winner will make a decision on the last option available.

The player order will be decided at each match coin flip with Home team reacting to visitor player selection. The games for each match will be played in the following order:

  • Team A player 1 & 2 vs Team B player 1 & 2
  • Team A player 1 & 3 vs Team B player 1 & 3
  • Team A player 2 & 3 vs Team B player 2 & 3

No tie breaker required.

To sign up for any iPN Team event, a DUPR account is required at the time of registration. Not Rated (NR) players may be permitted to play; however, their estimated rating will be verified by the tournament director.

All players must join the iPickle Nation DUPR Digital Club via their DUPR app.
