Tonight is the first ever Beat the Dream Team event hosted at Dreamland in Dripping Springs, TX. Following the success of Major League Pickleball, this team pickleball event will feature some of the top players in the game.
The Dream Team is led by MLP season 1 MVP, Lee Whitwell. She is joined by resident pros at Dreamland, Dekel Bar and DJ Young. Vivienne David was scheduled to be the fourth but will miss the event due to illness. In her place will be MLP season 1 champion Irina Tereschenko.
Taking on the Dream Team is #1 ranked women's player Anna Leigh Waters along with her mom and doubles partner Leigh Waters. Their male counterparts will be Collin Johns and Adam Stone.
Major League Pickleball Format
The MLP format consists of 4 games up to 21 points with the debut of rally scoring. The teams play a women's doubles game, a men's doubles game and two mixed doubles games. If the teams split these games 2-2, the match moves to a singles tie-breaker.
The singles tie-breaker has produced the most iconic moments from MLP. Lee Whitwell defied the odds and took the majority of points from some of the best men's singles players in the world.
