“We are thrilled to celebrate the inception of this event in honor of the rapidly expanding sport of pickleball,” said Meredith Griffin, Manager for National Competitive Events for Y-USA. “Pickleball stands as an inclusive sport, embracing individuals of all ages, skill levels and abilities. Recognizing the rapid growth of this family-friendly sport with committed partners like Pickle4, we eagerly anticipate many years of celebrating the thriving community pickleball is creating at Ys across the country!”

“Pickle4 is proud to partner with Y-USA, an organization that embodies the spirit of pickleball, on this inaugural event,” said Ben Weinberger, President of Pickle4. “We’re confident that our collaboration on this event will provide an exceptional experience for all participants!”
