Welcome to SAPO 2018

The executive and members of the High River Pickleball Club pride ourselves in making the SAPO tournament experience the best you can have on and off the courts. To this end, we are constantly making improvements and tweaking the processes. We listened to your comments and survey responses from last year, and are committed to making SAPO 2018 better than ever!

SAPO is unlike any other tournament that you will enter. The unique tournament draw format that we offer moves play along very quickly. Our 9 court fieldhouse is one of the finest facilities in Canada. Plus our members and dedicated volunteers go out of their way to make your SAPO experience first-class. From the highly sought-after SAPO T-shirt to the great food, drink and socializing… you will discover why people say that SAPO is "the best tournament around".

Last year at SAPO 2017, we offered play at the 2.5 level and it was very well received. Not many sanctioned tournaments include this skill level but we’re glad that we did as it's an excellent way to share the excitment of tournament action with new players. The 2.5 skill level will be available again at SAPO 2018.

Avoid disappointment - sign up quickly! Registration opens Feb 1st and like last year, we are anticipating a "sold-out" event with full draws in most levels.

The registration fee of only $55 gives you the opportunity to enter in one or two events. It also includes a SAPO 2018 t-shirt PLUS the many extras that are offered each day of the tournament.

This year we have capped registration in all of our events and levels. Sixteen (16) is the maximum number of teams that will be allowed in some high attendance levels... and many other levels have been capped at 8 or 12 teams. All the details are available on this site under the "Rules/Format of Play" section.

Sign up Feb 1st right here and join us in High River for excellent play and fun.

We all look forward to hosting you in High River for SAPO 2018.
