CNPL Western Qualifier Details

The CNPL Western Qualifier in Vernon will be a one day event as opposed to a two day event. This means a lot of gameplay in a single day. Players should ensure they stay hydrated. Snacks will be provided but you should also have a plan for food during the day.

The timings for Saturday March 23 are as follows, also see more details below:

Vernon Pickleball Association @ Marshall Fields Covered Pickleball
Marshall Fields Trail, Vernon, BC V1H 1M5
@ back of building pickleball courts (use East entrance)


10:30am – doors open
11:00am – category qualifiers begin (female / open)
01:00pm – court shuffle and break
03:00pm – category qualifier ends

03:30pm – mixed qualifiers begin
05:30pm – court shuffle and break
07:30pm – mixed qualifiers end
08:00pm – doors close


The play modified rules are as follows; rally scoring games to a hard score of 21, (if we find that games are taking too long we may reduce to a hard score of 15), there will be no freeze, and you have to win by only 1. The ball being used is the DuraFast 40 green. All other USAP rules will apply.

The goal of this event is to see as many different matchups as possible so that teams can analyze the data and see who they may want to draft for the 2024 season. We will be playing a kings/queens court format. After each match the winning team will move up a court and the losing team will move down a court. Each pair will split at this point so that players who were partners in the previous game are now opponents.
