USA Pickleball, the national governing body for the sport of pickleball, announced the schedule for the 2023 USA Pickleball National Championships Series (NCS), also known as The Road To Nationals.
The 2023 NCS will be comprised of five tournaments held across the country that serve as primary qualifiers for the sport’s premier event, the USA Pickleball National Championships.
USA Pickleball also announced that next year’s National Championships will be held Nov. 4-12, as it returns to Pickleball Paradise at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, Calif.
USA Pickleball and the Association of Pickleball Professionals (APP) will again partner next year to stage the NCS. All five series events will be part of the 2023 APP Tour, including the series opener Feb. 8-12 in Daytona Beach, Fla., at Pictona at Holly Hill.
The NCS will then move to APP stops in Mesa, Ariz. (March 29-April 2) and Cincinnati (May 10-14), before visiting the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City (May 24-28).
The series will conclude at the Consumer Cellular USA Pickleball Newport Beach Championships in Newport Beach, Calif., (June 28-July 2)
The USA Pickleball NCS provides the opportunity for amateur pickleball players to compete to earn a Golden Ticket by finishing first in their age and skill division(s) to automatically qualify for the National Championships.
All APP Tour and NCS events are sanctioned by USA Pickleball, and all players are required to be USA Pickleball members.
