U.S. Senior Pickleball

More information 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.
