Made-for-TV Event

The PPA, Selkirk Labs, and the prestigious Braemar Country Club in Los Angeles are thrilled to announce the Selkirk Labs Showdown presented by Invited—a made-for-television pickleball event.

August 5-7, 2022

Braemar Country Club

 Join us live on PPA TV and The Tennis Channel on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 5-7, 2022 for this thrilling, unconventional show featuring wild matchups and unlikely partnerships.

Imagine Ben Johns and Federico Staksrud challenging Matt Wright and Ryan “Sherbear” Sherry; or Lucy Kovalova and Allyce Jones taking on Anna Leigh Waters and Yana Grechkina!!! It promises to be an event to remember—full of surprising results, on-court theatrics, and (of course) some of the best pickleball on the planet!!! Don’t miss out.

A limited number of tickets are available for fans to attend the event live. Reserve your seats while you can.


There are three pools of players, each with four men and four women competitors. The first round—on Friday, August 5th—will feature a round-robin of matches between the players in each group. The matches will be a chaotic combination of men’s, women’s, and mixed doubles match.

Players will earn points individually, based on their performance during the pool play.

The top two men’s and women’s players from each pool will advance to the semi-finals, along with two wild card women’s players and two wild card men’s players (based on their wins/losses and point differential).
