About Major League Pickleball

Major League Pickleball is special! Our league is a one-of-a-kind gameplay format made up of 24 teams. Twelve of the co-ed teams are part of the MLP Premier Level and twelve are part of the MLP Challenger Level.

The Premier Level is home to the top 48 players drafted while Challenger Level boasts the next crop of 48 draftees looking to make their ascension to the top of the league.

The creation of MLP Premier Level and MLP Challenger Level will ensure the highest caliber of competition while providing a pathway and opportunities for the next generation of pro pickleball stars to break through.

Teams compete against each other in Matches. A Match consists of four Games, starting with one women’s doubles Game, followed by one men’s doubles Game, and then two mixed doubles Games.

If two teams are tied after these four games, an innovative tiebreaker known as the “DreamBreaker™” is played, with a rotational system involving all four players playing singles. Teams first play each other in group or round-robin play, and then the top teams square off in a single-elimination format.

Prize money is distributed equally for women and men based on team performance.

Meet the Team

Nothing captures the heart and spirit of pickleball like MLP events. Most of these players haven’t been on teams since college and this format is all about big team energy. I love seeing the coaches and teammates cheering, giving fist bumps, and occasionally running on the court for a flying chest bump. The players are the most skilled in the world, and the fans are the most fun! All I can say is, “Let’s go, Ballers!” Brené Brown
