Virginia Sportsfest

Virginia Sportsfest

The support received from our Prince William County Supervisors, Director of Parks, and all the incredible PWC staff has been nothing short of amazing in helping our pickleball community continue to grow. They were responsible in 2020 for building the first eight dedicated public pickleball courts north of Fredericksburg, VA at the A.J Ferlazzo Building. In 2021, four dedicated courts were delivered at Veterans Memorial Park and in 2022, six dedicated courts opened at George Hellwig Memorial Park in Manassas. We are so very grateful for all PWC has achieved and are excited to see what the future holds for additional pickleball growth throughout the County.
 
PWC is hosting their first Virginia Sportsfest in October. The purpose of the event is to show off different sports being offered in the County and to help grow tourism in PWC. A USAP sanctioned pickleball tournament run by Legends Sports League is on the list.
 
Let’s do our part to help make this a success!
 
Multiple levels of play are being showcased in the tournament, but it is very exciting to see a 1.0-2.0 beginner bracket being offered to encourage new players to join in on the fun and get their feet wet.
 
Below are some highlights of the tournament:
  • 1 of 12 sports planned in this Olympic-style event.
  • A sanctioned event (including skinny singles divisions).
  • OPEN ($$) divisions with up to $4K+ total purse
  • BEGINNER divisions for those with little or no pickleball experience (up to a max rating of 2.0) – These events are at NO ADDITIONAL COST.
Because this is a sanctioned tournament, you need to become a USAP member to participate. The USAP is the governing body of the sport of pickleball. They supply the official rules, sanctioned tournaments, referees, community and school grant programs, ambassadors, and the list goes on.
If you are new to playing in tournaments, there is a 3-step process to registration.
  1. Become a member of the USAP Association:https://usapickleball.org Be sure to answer questions correctly about your knowledge of pickleball which helps with your rating
  2. Go to PickleballTounaments and create an account. https://www.pickleballtournaments.com/tournamentinfo.pl?tid=6866  Look for the 2022 Virginia Sportsfest-powered by Legends Saturday 10/8/22 thru Mon 10/10/22
  3. A link will direct you to Legends Sports Leagues where you will need to create an account with Legends.
If you run into any trouble with the process, please email Ron Cortese [email protected], (include a screen-shot) and he will be happy to assist you.
