Our plans for the 5th Annual Minto US OPEN Pickleball Championships in April were off the charts. Over 2,600 competitors. 13,000 spectators. And enough music, food, fun, and fluids to keep them all rocking for seven straight days.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 had a plan of its own.
We may have been forced to skip a year, but we have not skipped a beat. The biggest pickleball party in the world will return to beautiful Naples, Florida in April 2021, stoked by two years of pent-up passion for the premier event in the sport.
Make your plans now to join us! The excitement of the Minto US OPEN Pickleball Championships is definitely contagious. And there is no vaccine.
ZING ZANG CHAMPIONSHIP COURT ADMISSION:
Due to Covid regulations, there may be limited seating in the Zing Zang Championship Court. Information on player access and tickets will be provided as more details become available. Please sign up for our email updates.
There is no charge to roam the 59 other courts, browse the US OPEN Expo, enjoy food and beverages, and watch the hottest pickleball action in the world!
Kiwanis will be parking cars again this year and there will be a charge of $5.00 per car per day. All proceeds will go to their ‘Christmas in July’ program to give students who are homeless or at risk of being homeless in Collier County the basic necessities so they have the opportunity to focus on their schoolwork. A complimentary shuttle service is provided from the parking lots. Parking is limited and you are encouraged to carpool or take a shuttle when available.
NAPLES BOTANICAL GARDEN WELCOME CENTER
Once you have arrived at East Naples Community Park, the Naples Botanical Garden Welcome Center should be your first stop. At the Welcome Center, you will be able to gather information about the event and learn more about the very cool things to do in Naples.
