Amateur players are rated on a scale of 1.0-5.0; professionals are rated 5.5+ (What’s my skill level?).
Watch the World's Best Pickleball
The PPA Tour has exclusive contracts with the top professional pickleball players in the world, including #1 female, Anna Leigh Waters, and #1 male, Ben Johns.
A Grounds Pass gives you access to every amateur and professional match that is NOT played on Championship Court. Matches are assigned to courts in real time during the tournament based on court availability. You can find each court assignment by following the bracket on the home page of our website each day of the tournament.
Courtside Passes give you access to all amateur and professional matches, including matches played on Championship Court. Courtside seating on Championship Court is bleacher seating and is organized on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Like a Courtside Pass, VIP Passes give you access to all amateur and professional matches, including matches played on Championship Court. However, a VIP Pass also comes with catered lunch, snacks, stocked coolers with cold drinks (including alcohol), and exclusive access to the VIP lounge. VIP seating on Championship Court is on chairs and is organized on a first-come, first-serve basis.
If you plan on attending every day of the tournament, buy a Weeklong Pass and enjoy everything you would with a Grounds, Courtside, or VIP Pass for a discounted price.

Hi Maxwell Hill,
I work at the YMCA of Greater Seattle, we have introduced pickleball to our Downtown Seattle YMCA community. I’m wondering if you need practice courts for teams or individuals to use prior to the PPA Tour event in Seattle. If you are interested or want to chat more about it, feel free to contact me [email protected]. Thanks.
Hi, Patrick! Thank you so much for reaching out and for being willing to support the Carvana PPA Tour. I’ve forwarded your contact information along to our Tournament Operations Team and they said they will keep your contact information on-hand as they are organizing logistics for this event. 😁
