association that is not affiliated with any other association. USSP will approve tournaments for the USSP
Tournament Circuit that are not sanctioned by any other association.

More about USSP
USSP offers tournaments using age/skill for players 50+ in age. When skill levels
are combined, 3.0 and 3.5 are often combined within an age group. If a player
or team would rather stay in their rated skill group, then they can always play
down in age. If a player or team wants to challenge themselves, then they can
always play up in skill. Either way, with USSP, both players and teams have a
choice in all competitive tournament play.
USSP addresses these issues:
Play with 5-year age groups from 50 to 80 years old.
Play with skill groups from 3.0 to 5.0.
Points awarded for the top 4 places in a reward system offering prizes.
Tournaments offered at the National, Zone and Circuit levels.
Anyone can register for a USSP tournament without a membership.
USSP Tournaments will be developed as age/skill based for all players over
50. USSP Members will receive a $10.00 discount for all USSP Circuit
Tournaments. We have 3 Zone Directors that will provide both tournaments
and tournament support in their zone.
We will use Pickleballbrackets.com software to manage our tournaments
and where you will register for a USSP Tournament. All USSP tournaments
will also be listed on the USSP website.
USSP tournaments will be offered in three zones, East, Central and West in 2022. Each zone will hopefully host 10 or more tournaments. The tournament schedule is currently being developed over the next 6 months and new tournaments being added regularly. To host a USSP tournament, simply contact the zone director for your location. See the USSP zone map and zone director contact information under the Tournament Circuit button. All tournament listings will be found at pickleballbrackets.com for tournament registration.
