August 7 - August 11

2024 Nola Picklefest

2024 Nola Picklefest: A Unique Blend of Sport, Music, and Charity

Set in the heart of New Orleans, the 2024 Nola Picklefest promises an unparalleled experience. Scheduled from August 7-11 at the Morial Convention Center, this event is not just a tournament; it’s a celebration of community, sport, and philanthropy.

The Essence of the Fest

The Nola Picklefest, now in its second year, is more than a sports event. It’s a major fundraiser for the Brees Dream Foundation. Brittany and Drew Brees, alongside partners like b1BANK, are committed to making a significant impact. The festival-style pickleball tournament features top-quality courts, live music, and celebrity matches.

Divisions, Brackets, and Age Groups

Participants can compete in three divisions: Women’s doubles, Men’s doubles, and Mixed doubles. Skill levels range from 3.0 to 5.0+. Competitors will be placed in either Open or 40+ brackets. Matches take place on 25 PickleRoll surfaced courts, including a “Center Stage” and a “Grand Slam” court.

Event Highlights and Logistics

From the tournament format to the championship courts, every detail is designed to enhance your experience. Doors open early, with a clear bag policy to ensure safety. The venue is cashless, and there’s ample parking. Remember, securing a partner early is crucial to avoid the waitlist.

Knowing Before Going

Preparation is key for attendees. The event is free to the public, but knowing the logistics, from parking to prohibited items, will make your experience smoother. The tournament also offers a range of activities beyond pickleball, including music and vendor booths.

The Impact Beyond the Court

The Nola Picklefest is more than a game. It’s a platform for the Brees Dream Foundation to extend its mission. With over $50,000,000 contributed to charitable causes, your participation makes a difference.
