In 2021, Niupipo will cooperate with Pickleball Global in 2020 World Pickleball Championship (WPC) for the first time as the exclusive paddle sponsor.
World Pickleball Championship is a $100,000-dollar Pickleball Tournament held by Pickleball Global. It is the end of the year event in which the world’s top players based on their Global Pickleball Rankings will compete to determine the best player in the world. The Global Pickleball Ranking system is determined by a player’s 12 best results in a rolling 52-week calendar. The World Pickleball Championship will be played in 19+, 40+, 50+, 60+, Pro and Senior Pro divisions over the course of the 5-day Championship.
World Pickleball Championship is a hybrid tournament bringing together top pros, senior pros and top age/skills players. Pro and Senior Pro players will compete in Elite (Rating 5+), while the top age/skill players will compete in Advanced (Rating 4.0-4.99) levels. At the same time, the tournament is also open for regular players who play on a less competitive, intermediate level (Rating 3.0 – 3.99), while giving them a very unique opportunity to watch the world’s best pickleball players competing for the World Pickleball Titles.
