Pickleball Canada Sanctioned Tournament, Tournament Points and Player Ratings

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.

Pickleball Canada 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  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.
