This year Pickleball Canada has sucessfully sanctioned three major tournaments: the 2nd Pickleball Canada National Open Championship, Nanaimo Pickleball Tournament and the Ontario 50+ Pickleball Tournament.
publish the results and photos of all sanctioned tournaments and tournament
points on our newsletters and we also publish the top 50 players in Canada with
the most tournament points of each year for recognition of their achievements.
Benefits of Tournament Points:
Tournament Points are awarded as
recognition of achievement in Sanctioned Tournaments.
Tournament Points will
be used to publish a list of the top 50 tournament point winners at the end of
each calendar year.
Tournament Points may be used by Tournament Directors to
determine seeding in tournament brackets.
Tournament Points may be used by
the Ratings Committee to determine a player's rating at the end of each year.
PCO can give official International Federation of Pickleball, IFP player ratings which are published in the
IFP website http://ipickleball.org IFP
Player Ratings -- For players in the U.S. and Canada. If any of our members
would like to get an IFP rating because they play in the USA and Canada,
please contact PCO to post an IFP player's rating (a self rating
approved by our Ambassador or a committee). PCO and USAPA use the same IFP
player ratings because we want to have the same player's ratings in each country
so players can play in the same skill rated tournaments in Canada or USA.
