APP Unveils Three 'Golden Ticket' Tournaments for 2025 USA Pickleball National Championships

by The Dink Media Team on

The APP, alongside the sport’s National Governing Body USA Pickleball, have unveiled the first three opportunities to earn a "Golden Ticket" to the 2025 Biofreeze USA Pickleball National Championships.

This fall, pickleball players at the 2024 APP Tour events in Dallas (Oct. 9-13), Newport Beach (Oct. 23-27), and Boca Raton (Nov. 6-10) all have the chance to secure their spot for USAP’s premier event in 2025.

"The APP is proud to offer pickleball fans across the nation the very first opportunities on the 'Path to Nationals' in 2025 with three this fall," said Ken Herrmann, APP founder. "We’re excited to build on our partnership with pickleball's National Governing Body and look forward to hosting more world-class events to help APP players achieve their goal of competing at the USA Pickleball Nationals in 2025."

"We are thrilled to continue working with the APP Tour in 2025, designating three of their events as Golden Ticket tournaments," said Jose Moreno, USA Pickleball chief marketing and strategy officer. "The APP has been a fantastic partner, and their tournaments provide an extremely high caliber of quality, player experience, and competition. These three tournaments across the country will serve as fantastic stops along the Path to Nationals next year."

Players across all ages and skills brackets who earn a gold medal at USA Pickleball Golden Ticket-designated events will secure their spot to pre-register for the 2025 USA Pickleball National Championships.

The APP Tour's return to the Lone Star State will be a golden one, with the APP Dallas Open kicking off the late fall schedule. Two weeks later, the APP Tour returns once more to Newport Beach for the 2024 APP Southern California Open. Pickleball players can also take their shot at gold in November at the APP Tour’s penultimate event of 2024, the APP Boca Raton Open.
