How to watch in person, on TV

The eighth annual Minto US Open Pickleball Championships return to Naples this week, boasting its largest field and biggest purse.

More than 3,000 competitors of all ages and levels are scheduled to descend on East Naples Community Park for the tournament, which is set for April 13-20. Athletes from all 50 states, American Samoa, and 31 different counties will be playing on the park’s 60-plus courts, including more than 450 professionals competing for a US Open record purse of approximately $150,000.

Last year’s US Open drew approximately 3,100 participants and 41,00 spectators during the week. Collier County estimated the event brings $14 million in economic impact, which factors in hotel room nights along with other visitor spending.

Here’s what else you should know about the self-described “biggest pickleball party in the world.”

How to get tickets for the US Open Pickleball Championships

Admission is free for the event. Tickets are only required to watch pro matches on the Zing Zang Championship Court. Due to high demand, ticket sales opened through a lottery system in February. However, tickets will also be sold at the park if space is available.
