Paddles at the Plex Fall 2023: An Exciting Pickleball Tournament Awaits

Mark your calendars for the upcoming Paddles at the Plex Fall 2023, a thrilling pickleball tournament set to take place from September 5th to 10th at the Opelika Sportsplex in Opelika, Alabama. This event promises to be a grand spectacle of skill, strategy, and sportsmanship, featuring 24 covered, individually fenced, lighted courts.

Registration for the tournament opens on June 18, 2023, and the cost is $70 for the general public and $60 for Opelika Pickleball Club members. The registration fee includes participation in two events, a lunch food voucher, and a special tournament gift. An additional event can be added for just $15.

The tournament is structured around age brackets, which include 19+, 30+, 40+, 50+, 55+, 60+, 65+, and 70+. Participants over 60 will play from Tuesday to Thursday (Sept 5 – 7), while those below 60 will compete from Friday to Sunday (Sept 8 – 10).

The tournament format is designed to be as inclusive and fair as possible. For brackets with seven teams or fewer, a round-robin format will be used without medal playoffs. For brackets with eight teams or more, a double-elimination format will be implemented. The tournament director reserves the right to adjust the format based on the number of teams in a bracket, and small brackets may be combined. However, medals will be awarded for players in all original brackets.

To ensure your spot, it’s recommended to sign up early and complete payment for the entire team. Teams with both partners registered and paid will have priority on available slots. Teams not paid in full or without partners may be moved to the waiting list to make room for paid teams.

The Opelika Sportsplex, located just over an hour from Atlanta’s Hartfield Jackson airport, is a state-of-the-art facility that will provide all registered players with member privileges during the tournament. Food trucks will be available for lunch, and while pets are not allowed in the pavilions, the atmosphere promises to be festive and exciting.

The tournament has a clear refund policy. Player cancellations or withdrawals before August 25, 2023, will result in a full refund minus a $15 administration fee. After the cancellation date, refunds will be at the discretion of the tournament director with a minimum administrative fee of $25.

The tournament will be played on asphalt courts with permanent nets, using the Franklin X-40 ball. Parking is free, but due to construction, be prepared to walk some distance.

The Paddles at the Plex Fall 2023 is more than just a pickleball tournament; it’s a celebration of the sport and the community that surrounds it. Whether you’re a seasoned player or a newcomer to the game, this event offers a unique opportunity to compete, learn, and have fun. So, grab your paddle and join us for an unforgettable experience!
