DALLAS – Humana and the Carvana Professional Pickleball Association (PPA Tour) are excited to announce the “Humana Champions Showcase,” a dedicated amateur series highlighting senior amateur competition at four key stops on the PPA Tour. Humana and the PPA Tour previously unveiled a broad partnership “in recognition of pickleball’s rapidly growing popularity thanks to America’s seniors.” 

“As a champion of seniors for decades, Humana strives to create experiences that promote healthy lifestyles and foster social connections to improve people’s lives. We celebrate the power of pickleball to do just that and this Showcase gives us a chance to support the athletes leading the charge,” said Jennifer Bazante, Chief Marketing Officer at Humana.

The “Humana Champions Showcase” will highlight the incredible athletes of each 50+ age bracket at the four dedicated PPA Tour stops. Champions of each bracket will win the Humana Champions Showcase trophy as well as a gift card to Pickleball Central, courtesy of the PPA Tour. 

Additionally, clinics will be available to select participants and taught by Dave Fleming, a top Senior Pro and the “Voice of the PPA Tour” at select tournament locations. Fleming will also host a content series that shares tips on living a healthy life, improving your pickleball game and choosing the right gear. 

“Pickleball is a sport for all ages, and we are thrilled to partner with Humana to highlight and uplevel the experience for our most seasoned players,” said Fleming. “Humana and the PPA Tour are changing the game and making the sport even more enjoyable for seniors, which we didn’t even think was possible!”

The first Humana Champions Showcase will take place at the PPA Carvana Arizona Cup at Bell Bank Park in Mesa, February 20-25. For more information and to register to play, visit ppatour.com.
