Pickleball Canada is pleased to announce that registration has opened for the 2023 Pickleball Canada Central Regional Championship. Central Regionals will be held from July 13th to 16th in Kingston, Ontario. The location of Central Regionals alternates each year between Quebec and Ontario.
Competition categories include men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. Events will take place at two venues – the Kingston Pickleball Club, and the nearby Invista Centre. As a Pickleball Canada sanctioned tournament, current international rules will be in effect, and interested players must be members of Pickleball Canada at time of registration.
Peter Milovanovic, Pickleball Canada President, said “I am very pleased to see the launch of registration for our Central Regional Championship. Scheduled during Kingston’s peak tourist season, the tournament should be a joyful celebration of pickleball and summer for locals and travellers alike.”
“We are thrilled to welcome players back to Kingston”, said Andrea Blackwell, President of the Kingston Pickleball Club. “We will leverage our experience in hosting large pickleball tournaments to ensure 2023 Central Regionals are one to remember!”
Kingston is located on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and Huron-Wendat First Nations. In Anishinaabemowin, this space is called “Gaadanokwii,” which is interpreted to mean “a great meeting place”.
Nestled where the St. Lawrence River, Rideau Canal, and Lake Ontario meet, the city’s lakeshore location is home to Ontario’s oldest public market with dozens of museums and historic sites, and dozens more unique shopping and dining experiences, Kingston offers something old and something new around every corner.
