PICKLEBALL (1)_edited.jpg

Bash Pickleball Club is excited to announce that in collaboration with DPL, we will be hosting our first MLP style event. Most of the rules will follow MLP formatting with a couple of small exceptions. Each team will consist of 4 players total (2 male and 2 female). We will be having 2 divisions and in each division 1st and 2nd place will receive medals and the winner of each division will be splitting $500 cash prize as a team. 

Registration: Teams will pick 1 captain to fully register the entire team via Court Reserve. Captain will have to fully pay for the entire team and list the players names of their team. Team price is $280 per team ($70/player). As part of the price we are providing lunch and beverages for all players. 


Ratings: At Bash we are a DUPR facility and we will be utilizing DUPR Ratings to ensure that everyone is playing in the correct division. We as a facility reserve the right to review and modify all players and move teams accordingly if we deem it fitting that they are in the wrong bracket. Scores/results will NOT be entered into DUPR so this event will NOT affect your rating.
- DUPR 19 (Team’s total DUPR must meet minimum of 17.1 and CANNOT exceed 19.099)
- DUPR 21 (Team’s total DUPR must be minimum of 19.1 and CANNOT exceed 21.099) 
*DUPR scores at the time of team submission will be used. Fluctuations or changes leading up the tournament will NOT affect teams entry.


Format: Each division will have a limit of 8 teams; first 8 teams that are fully registered will get into the event. Fully registered means all players are signed up and paid. Each division will have 8 teams split into 2 pools of 4 teams based on average DUPR as a team. Amongst your pool you will play round robin style to begin and play each team once. Each match consists of 5 total matches (WD, MD, MXD, MXD, dreambreaker). During the pool play all matches despite overall team score will be played out. Example, since it is first team to obtain 3 match wins, if a team is able to win WD, MD and first MXD, we will still play out the remaining MXD and dreambreaker. One difference that our format has compared to standard MLP is the dreambreaker in a doubles dreambreaker and NOT a singles one. Top two teams in each pool will proceed to a Championship Playoff (consisting of two semifinal matches). In the playoffs, the first team to win three games will win the match. In addition, the teams finishing in 3rd and 4th place in their respective pool will play a match against the opposing pool's 3rd and 4th place teams (during the two semifinal matches).


Scoring/Gameplay: The start of each match the HOME team will have to put out their full lineup for WD, MD and both mixed matches. The Away team will then get a chance to respond to the home teams lineup. Every match is 1 game to 25 (except Dreambreaker is 1 game to 21), win by 2 points using rally scoring and switching sides at 13 . Once a team reaches 24 points they must be serving in order to win the match. If the score becomes 24-24, the receiving team can win a point to get to 25-24 on the side out, but in order to win 26-24 they must win that final point on their serve. Each team gets 1 timeout per match. After pool play teams ranking will be determined based on overall points. The following point format will be followed;
**Games won= 1 point; Match win=3 points; Team Dreambreaker= 1 point**
Top 2 teams from each pool advance to the championship bracket where 1st place in pool A will play 2nd place from pool B and 1st place from pool B will play 2nd place from pool A. This is the semi-finals matchups which will then be followed by championship finals and also a 3rd/4th place match. 

Schedule: We will be playing both divisions simultaneously with 2 available courts at all times for players to stay warm if needed. First matches for all pools will begin promptly at 9:00 am. Checkin for all players will begin at 8:00am and you may begin warming up around 8:15am. We will have all teams come together around 8:45am for a brief overview of the rules and answer any questions anyone might have. We will let you know when you checkin which courts will be assigned to your division and pool. We will have pools and brackets displayed for all to see and follow along.
