The National Championships, which was originally scheduled to take place in November, will now serve as the final event in Desert Champions’ exciting lineup of live entertainment this fall.
“We are incredibly excited to have the opportunity to hold the 2021 National Championships” said USA Pickleball Chief Operating Officer Justin Maloof, “and we look forward to welcoming the pickleball community back to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden for a spectacular event December 6-14.”
