Tournament Management Software for Registration and Game-Day Management

We will be using PickleballBrackets.com for registration and game-day management.

If you haven’t yet signed up for PickleballBrackets.com, you will need to create your Pickleball Brackets account before registering for any events. Once you create that account, you will need to respond to the automated email from PickleballBrackets.com to verify your email address. Once completed, you will then be able to register for the event(s).

In-Game Text Messages

This will be a helpful feature during “game-day.” You will have the option of receiving “in-game text messages” when creating your PickleballBrackets account.  Please opt-in. That will help expedite matches, communication, etc. on game day.

Why PickleballBrackets?

Some of you may be wondering why we opted to use PickleballBrackets.com and not PickleballTournaments.com for tournament registration and game-day management this year. Simply stated, I enjoy testing new software, features, and processes.

Last year I tried out PickleballTournaments.com for the first time as a tournament director and was, frankly, a bit underwhelmed – especially given their contract with the USAPA as the exclusive tournament management software for sanctioned pickleball tournaments. Here is my review of PickleballTournaments.com after the 2018 WinterMAX tournament.

This year I wanted to try PickleballBrackets.com. I have heard many good things about this company and thought they deserved a fair and equal opportunity.

See you on the courts!

  1. Was curious to see your reaction to using Pickleballbrackets.com to run your tourney. I read your review of the pickleballtournaments.com software and I agree wholeheartedly that it was severely lacking. I am worried when I hear of “updates” when I feel the whole thing should be trashed and started anew. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
