The Premier Experience in the North

A three-day USAPA sanctioned tournament for amateurs and pros with over $25,000 in prize money.  This is THE “must-play” event in Minnesota.

The Twin Cities Pickleball Club has an eleven year legacy of creating world class tournament experiences that span from The Miracle Ear to the USAPA Middle States Regionals – Powered By TRIA. Now we’re bringing you The Minnesota Pickleball Open!

This will be the largest pickleball event in the state with over 500 participants from 30 states and Canada expected to play.

All matches will be officiated by referees. Over 150 volunteers will support a smooth and well run tournament. With this great venue we can offer Skill plus Age, Age plus Skill, Pro, and Sr. Pro brackets, ensuring more playing time and better quality of play!

What: 2020 Summer Sizzler Tournament

Where: Frank Hall Courts, Albert Lea, MN

When: August 15th and 16th (always the 3rd weekend in August)


We’ll be sending out the actual invitation at a later date but we wanted to give you a “heads up” so you’re aware of the dates we’ve chosen. Our intentions are to consistently set the third weekend in August for our Summer Sizzler so that those of you who enjoy attending other tournaments within your traveling range can better plan your scheduling. If you know of anyone who would appreciate getting a notice, please give us contact information so we can extend the invitation to them as well.

Thanks & Happy Pickling!
