Competition Format

A player may enter one singles, one doubles and one mixed doubles for the entry fee.

Pickleballs will be provided.  Players must provide their own paddle.

Match formats may be best 2 out of 3 or Round Robin..  Games may be played to 11 or 15 with wins declared by a 1 or 2 point margin, depending on format.  If the 3rd game is needed, side will switch when either side first reaches 6 points in that 3rd game.

Age groups may be combined in the event of limited numbers/participants.  Iowa Games reserves the right to modify format based on number of participants.

Doubles/Mixed Doubles
Each member of a doubles team must complete a separate entry form and pay the entry fee. If playing doubles, all players must indicate who their partner is on the entry form. Individuals wishing to be assigned a doubles partner should indicate ‘Need Partner’ on entry form. The tournament director will attempt to assign a partner.

When scheduling the tournament doubles and mixed doubles age divisions are determined by the youngest player’s age.

During registrations players will be asked to rate themselves.  If registering via mail please include your rating on your entry form.
