PICKLEBALL NEWS:   NEW SKILLS DIVISIONS ADDED for the 2021 National NSGA Pickleball Tournament in Florida.

  • The 2021 National Senior Games skill ratings per division are listed below;

  • Pickleball will continue to have 5-year age divisions;  50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, etc.   For the 2022 National Senior Games
    • In regards to skill ratings changing from the time an athlete qualifies at a state qualifying event and the National Senior Games, the most current rating will be used.  The USAPA cutoff for ratings is September 1, 2021, and no adjustments will be made after that date.  At the time of registration for the National Senior Games, the athlete will be asked to list their rating (as we have done in the past).  If the rating does not match the one on file with the USAPA, it will be changed accordingly.
    • In the event that an athlete qualifies without a skill rating, they will need to refer to the document posted on NSGA.com under the Pickleball sport page in order to determine their skill rating.  Athletes will need to declare a skill rating when registering for the 2021 National Senior Games.
