Skill Level

Welcome to the Inaugural Battle at the Beach, a weekend of competitive and enjoyable pickleball play! We've observed a remarkable number of skilled women aged 60 and above, with a rating of 4.5 and higher, participating in pickleball. However, there's been a scarcity of tournaments that adequately cater to this demographic without needing to combine age groups or skill levels. That's why we've made it our mission to gather all you fantastic 60+ women pickleball players for a genuine test of skill against peers of the same age bracket.

Here's how the selection process works.
First, choose your level from the options below. When you add the item to your cart and proceed to view your cart, you'll find a section labeled "ORDER SPECIAL INSTRUCTION." In that box, please provide your playing information, including your rating (DUPR, PBR, UTR), your most recent tournament played, and any additional details relevant to your playing ability. We've chosen this weekend specifically because it falls just before nationals, allowing you to bring your partner and utilize it as a practice session.

Our team will compile all this information and create a list of potential 'Battle at the Beach' Players. We will then contact you and you will be able to pay the fees.  This is to ensure that the level of play is balanced and maintained above 4.5 skill level. Thank you for your cooperation.
