Despite continued player support, optimism, and extensive preparation, the 2020 Rocky Mountain Tournament Series was unfortunately not meant to be due to the COVID pandemic. While delayed last year, plans for a bigger and better 2021 RMP Series are well underway, including announcement of our new venue the Gates Tennis Center in Denver and introduction of the inaugural New Mexico Open. Our team remains committed to hosting top national and local tournaments in the Rocky Mountain Region and has partnered with the Professional Pickleball Association (PPA) to further enhance participants tournament experience.

Tournament Play

Opportunities for added fun, socializing, excitement and competition. Tournaments are organized to provide challenging matches between players of similar age and skill levels. Often including a variety of doubles matches, featuring ladies, mens and mixed formats. An even tougher format is singles play, where one player must cover the entire side of the court (same size court as doubles!). Both doubles and singles are exciting to watch and even better to be a part of. Tournaments vary in size, from smaller, local events, with 50 or fewer competitors, to the Margaritaville USA Pickleball Nationals, which in 2019 year featured over 2200 players on 49 courts at the incredible Indian Wells Tennis Garden! There's a tournament for everyone. Rocky Mountain Pickleball invites you to give tournament play a try.

Give A Paddle Campaign

alova! With many of us players wanting to remain on the cutting edge of paddle design and technology, the purchase of a new paddle often results in the accumulation of an extra paddle or two. As we all know, these used paddles are typically in good shape, yet end up packed away in some box, often never again seeing action on the court. Rocky Mountain Pickleball would like to encourage you to consider donating your previous paddle to our Give A Paddle Campaign. We'll ensure that your old paddle is put to awesome use by one of several youth organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club of American, and YMCA. Your paddle donation will not only help in promoting our sport, but may introduce it to the next Ben Johns, Tyson McGuffin, Riley Newman, Irina Tereschenko, Sarah Ansboury, Kyle Yates, or Lucy Kovalova! Please keep it mind. We can accept your paddles at the Rocky Mountain Pickleball canopy at any of our tournaments or contact us regarding other ways to make the donation.

Thanks in advance from us and the pickleball world!

Following some basic instructions and review of the rules, most anyone can begin playing, enjoying, and becoming addicted to pickleball.

Margaritaville USA National Pickleball Championships

The skill, tallent, and athletism of the professional players is trully exceptional. Watching Ben, Simone, Kyle, Irina, Riley, Tyson, Jesse, and the rest of the top pros compete is extraordinary. They provide us mortal players with goals most won't be able to achieve.... but it's fun to try.

Don Siegel, Director Rocky Mountain Pickleball

One of the few sports that brings multiple sports athletes together. I'd love to see it become part of the Olympics.

Tyson McGuffin - 2018 U.S. Mens Singles National Champion

A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.
