Hi, World Picklers-
Thank you for signing up to participate in WPT St George Challenger. We appreciate your interest in our tour!
At this time, we've decided to cancel the WPT St George Challenger due to lower than expected registration numbers. We strive to provide the best tournament experience possible for you all, and we plan on coming back to St George in the future to do so.
Players will be issued a full refund back to their original source of payment. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. We look forward to seeing you in the future at a tournament!

The World Pickleball Tour is coming to St George in 2023!
From September 8-10, 2023, we'll be hosting a tournament at the gorgeous, 24-court, Little Valley Pickleball Complex in St. George, UT!
The World Pickleball Tour is a strictly amateur tournament series that hosted 25 events in 2022 and is hosting nearly 40 in 2023.
All of our tournament stops are considered "challenger" events, as all Gold Medalists from our circuit are invited to the 2024 WPT Amateur Invitational Championships, which will pit the best amateur players in the country against each other as they compete for their share of the $175,000 CASH PURSE at the event!
We exist to grow the game at the grassroots level, and aim to provide high-quality, valuable, and memorable competitive experiences for you all, the amateur players. We look forward to seeing you at this event!
Skill/Age Brackets: 3.0-5.0; 19+, 30+, 40+, 50+, 60+ (70+ after registration close, if applicable). 18 and under can register for 19+.
Registration Perks: All players receive a WPT player swag bag: a reusable, branded tote that contains elevated giveaway items, hydration and nutrition essentials, court fashion accessories, other player necessities, and a World Tour DRIFIT t-shirt!
Format: This will be an unsanctioned, Round Robin-style event with 7 guaranteed matches (games to 11, win by 2).
Multiple Events/Same Day: Once registration closes and the schedule is created, players will have the opportunity to add another skill/age event to the same day of competition as long as the start times don't conflict. Unsure of what level to play or wishing to test out your skills at the next level up, now you can play two events in a single day!
Winners: All gold medalists earn an invitation to the 2024 championship event with a $175k cash purse. Silver and bronze medalists will also earn a spot on the waitlist for the 2024 championship event as well as any participate of a WPT event (in that order).
Giveaways: The WPT will be providing sponsored giveaways that are raffled off at the event - from luxury bags to paddles and more!

Happy Pickleballin'!

Additional Information
WAITLIST: When registering for DOUBLES, the second signed up teammate MUST register within 2 days of the first player. If a teammate does not register within the specified time limit then the first player will be placed on the waiting list automatically. Emails will go out to both players when this happens. Once the second teammate registers they will be moved off the waiting list IF there is still room in the event.
If a bracket reaches the initial 9-player/team limit, please add yourself to the waitlist. Brackets will be expanded up to 11-players/teams if there is space available in the event day.
Skill/age groups with less than 4 teams will be combined with the most adjacent skill/age group to produce a minimum of 4 teams.
TOURNAMENT COST: include a registration fee ($60-80; depending on the period) and a per event fee ($30).
SCHEDULE: Will be posted on the tournament website on Monday, September 4, 2023 by 11:59p PST. WPT events run in waves (8a, 12p, and 4p). Brackets are assigned to times based upon number of registrants, therefore, times can not be established until registration closes. Players/teams will be permitted to sign-up for a 2nd bracket on the same day (the weekend after registration closes), if the times do not conflict.
Friday: Mens Singles / Womens Doubles
Saturday: Mixed Doubles
Sunday: Mens Doubles / Womens Singles
