It’s easy to find pickleball tournaments in the USA. Just look up Pickleball Tournaments on the web and you can search for them by date, state, or just scroll through the endless list of tournaments offered every weekend of the year, throughout the country!
Now, if you’re looking for a tournament to play in on a trip to Europe, or another part of the world, that’s a different story. Tournaments are fewer in Europe, because the game is in its early stages of development, however each year more tournaments are being offered.
Here’s a list of the tournaments that I know of so far, upcoming in 2019. Click on the links in each to find the most up to date information.
