The Major League Pickleball(™) draft is just around the corner. See the current rank based on doubles DUPR ratings of the players who have submitted their names and are eligible for the draft. While the majority of play is doubles, players’ singles skills can make a huge impact when a Dreambreaker decides the match.
One thing is for certain, with 48 women and 48 men, the 2023 season is sure to include exciting new partnerships and the most competitive field of players ever assembled.
"The year will be divided into two “seasons” of three events – in the first season, 12 teams will compete in the MLP Premier Level (the first 48 drafted players) and 12 will compete in the MLP Challenger Level (the next 48 drafted players), with rosters consisting of two men and two women. The teams will then flip levels and re-draft players for the second season. With the expansion to 24 teams, MLP is offering up to $5 million in prize money and payouts to its players in 2023."
