Competition Format and Rules
The Cornhusker State Games Pickleball event is a skills rated tournament. Depending on the number of entries in each event, we may have age within skills rated. In doubles events, the skill level is determined by the partner with the highest skill level. Indicated skill ratings may be reviewed and modified by the Sport Director.
Events will be double elimination or round robin with a possible single elimination, depending on the number of entries. The Sports Director reserves the right to modify the divisions and format based on the number of participants. Depending on the number of entries, a combination of skill level and age will determine brackets.
Athletes are allowed to participate in only one skill level per event. There is a maximum of three events per participant.
USA Pickleball Association rules will apply. Official rules can be found at USAPA.org.

MULTI-EVENT DISCOUNT NOTE: If registering for multiple events, all entries must occur in the same transaction to receive the multi-event discount.
ONLINE REGISTRATION NOTE: If registering for a doubles event, the participant must still select “Myself” or “Another Participant” (NOT “Team”) on the first step of the registration process. The participant will be asked to list doubles partner’s name. Entering their name DOES NOT register them for the event. Both team members must register themselves, or the participant can register both members by selecting “Another Participant” on the first step of the registration process.
