    Mission and Vision: The APP / Chicken N Pickle Next Gen Series is the first of its kind, geared towards developing champions in the hearts of young adult men and women pickleball  players. Our mission is to create a platform for top American pickleball players to compete and receive coaching / education from our senior professionals. This mentoring program prepares young adults to represent the United States in future international and APP Tour professional competitions.

    Format: The age range for the series events is 16 – 23 years-old, with players competing in a three-day tournament consisting of singles, doubles, and mixed doubles held at various Chicken N Pickle facilities. There is a single open bracket for each division (men / women) with all ages being combined, no individual skill flights per gender. Two wildcards are awarded for each Next Gen Series for both men and women competitors who are under the age of 16 looking to gain experience in a  Next Gen Series. A committee, formed by the senior mentoring program will determine those  wildcards.

    Day-to-Day Schedule:

    Friday – Mixed
    Saturday – Gender Doubles

    All players will be encouraged to play all three days as total cumulative points earned will determine the top two finishers at the end of Sunday’s play.
