DUPR Collegiate Pickleball - 2023 Schedule

Updated: Jul 24

DUPR is excited to announce our Collegiate Tournament Schedule for 2023!

There will be 12 Regional Tournaments, The Collegiate Team National Championships, and new this year is the Collegiate Individual National Championship. All tournaments will be played at Life Time locations across the country.

DUPR is working to bring the college pickleball experience to as many schools as possible, and that starts by having regionalized tournaments across the nation. DUPR will be hosting the first annual Collegiate Individual National Championship, where players from any school can come and compete in brackets for all 5 events.

To conclude the year, DUPR will be hosting the 2023 Collegiate National Championship for the 36 best college teams in the country!

Here is an overview for each of the tournaments:

DUPR Regionals

DUPR will be putting on 12 Regionals at Life Time clubs between March and October of this year. In order to participate in the DUPR Collegiate National Championship, every college has to participate in at least one Regional, and receive a bid for their school. Regionals are the main way to receive a bid, but there are other methods as listed below. Schools are not locked by location and can play in as many Regionals as they want.

All it takes is 2 men and 2 women players from a college to form a team and compete! Your school doesn't need to have an official pickleball club in order to participate. You just need 4 current students and a DUPR Digital Club for your school. Search here to see if your school already has a DUPR Digital Club, and if not, contact to have one made for your school.

To register, go to the Regional event on DUPR (links are below) and sign up in your school's team bracket once your school has decided who is going. If your school doesn't have a team bracket, contact to have one made for your school.

Scholarship Money (Per Regional): $4,000

Entry Requirements:

  • Have a fully filled out DUPR Digital club for your college

  • Any eligible college student taking a minimum of 6 college credits can participate


  • Team Bracket (MLPlay format) and Open Divisions

More Information about Bids

In order to play in the DUPR Collegiate National Championship, a college must obtain a bid either through a Regional Tournament, the Collegiate Individual National Championship, or the DUPR Collegiate Council. DUPR will keep track of which schools have received a bid as the year progresses. Once your school receives a bid, you cannot receive any more. Any bids you would have received will be given to the next highest placed team at the tournament. This prevents schools from blocking other schools from receiving bids.

24 bids will be given out across the 12 regional tournaments, and 5 bids will be given out at the Collegiate Individual National Championship. To get to 36 total bids, the DUPR Collegiate Council will give out bids to schools based on competitiveness, DUPR rating, club size, and how the club has used the DUPR software at their school and community. DUPR will update the colleges regularly about how many bids have been given out, and to which schools.
