Australia Minor League Pickleball @ Melbourne

September 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm AEST

The future of pickleball is NOW: Minor League Pickleball is going international into Australia with its innovative, fun and social amateur MLPlay™ Team Event.

FORMAT

Minor League PIckleball is an innovative team competition where teams of 4 players (2 women and 2 men) compete against each other in an engaging format, with twists on traditional match-ups and scoring for games, matches, and tiebreakers. Teams compete against each other in Matches using the MLPlay™ format:

MLPlay™ is an ingenious gameplay format that brings men and women together on a level playing court. In the MLPlay™ format team matches are composed of four 21-point games, one women’s doubles, a men’s doubles, and the final two games consisting of mixed doubles.

If both teams are tied at 2-2 after the 4 games are played, they’ll go to a Dreambreaker™! In a Dreambreaker™ one person from each team plays singles against the other team’s player, switching players every four rallies until someone gets to 21 and wins by two points.

To sign up for any Minor League event, a DUPR account is required at the time of registration. Not rated players can play; however, their estimated rating will be verified by the tournament director. All players must join the East Coast Pickleball DUPR Digital Club via their DUPR app. SWISH App download with DUPR linked is also required.
