Welcome to the first annual
Pickled for Parkinsons™ pickleball tournament
in support of Rise Above Parkinsons, Inc.

Rise Above Parkinsons is a public 501c3 organization whose mission is to provide much-needed assistance to Florida residents struggling with Parkinson’s disease. We are a purely volunteer-run organization, which means nearly 100% of funds raised will go directly to those in need.


Florida has the highest percentage of population afflicted with Parkinson’s in the United States. Our organization helps these Parkinson’s warriors afford the medications, therapies, assistive devices, and more that can greatly improve quality of life, allowing them to live as safely and independently as possible, and providing much needed relief not only to the patient but the patient’s loved ones.


Thank you for joining us and supporting our mission.


All participants will receive a tournament t-shirt and a swag bag. There will be a vendor village with drinks and snacks, auction items, and more!


Corporate sponsorships are available. Inquire here.

Tournament Details


This tournament features men's doubles, women's doubles, and mixed doubles competition, each divided into 4 brackets based on age and skill. All brackets are limited to 8 teams maximum, divided into 2 pools of 4. Each pool will play the other teams in their pool round robin style, guaranteeing each team at least 3 matches. The top team in each pool will then challenge each other for Gold and Silver medals.

All games are played to 11 points, win by 1.

The official tournament ball is the Selkirk™ PRO S1 ball. We are grateful to Selkirk for their support.


Brackets are based on age and skill. Intermediate is skill level 3.0 - 3.9; Advanced is skill level 4.0+.

Each team must play at the skill level of the higher rated player and the age of the younger player. We will be using self-rating: PLEASE BE COURTEOUS TO OTHERS AND ACCURATELY RATE YOURSELF. Age is calculated as of 11/01/2024. No matches at this tournament will have referees. This tournament is not sanctioned by the USAPA.

Men’s Doubles (4 brackets): Intermediate age 18+, Intermediate age 60+; Advanced age 18+; Advanced age 60+

Women’s Doubles (4 brackets): Intermediate age 18+, Intermediate age 60+; Advanced age 18+; Advanced age 60+

Mixed Doubles (4 brackets): Intermediate age 18+, Intermediate age 60+; Advanced age 18+; Advanced age 60+

Please note: Tournament format and brackets are subject to change based on registrations and as necessary by the Tournament Director.


Tournament registration fee is $35 and each bracket is $15.

For example, a player who registers for women’s doubles only will pay $50, while one who registers for both women’s doubles and mixed doubles will pay $65.

All registered players will receive a tournament t-shirt and a swag bag.

Registration opens August 1 and concludes October 26. Registration and payment is online through pickleballden.com only; there will be no mail-in or in-person registration at the time of the tournament.

Players who register and pay but do not have a partner at the registration deadline will not be refunded.

Because of the tournament structure, there is a limit of 64 players per division (men's doubles, women's doubles, mixed doubles), for a total of 192 player spots. Once those spots are filled, you may still register and be put on the waiting list. Waitlist players will not pay fees until they are moved into an active bracket. All fees paid are final.

Refund Policy: All fees paid are final.


Tarpon Tennis & Pickleball Club is an outdoor facility with 4 dedicated courts with permanent nets and 4 temporary courts with portable nets. Ample free parking is available.

In the event of inclement weather, Sunday November 3 is the designated rain date. If that day is rained out as well, we will reschedule the event.
