The Salt City Open is the only event in New York State that is a qualifier to PPA Nationals! Which state has the best pickleball players? The answer will be revealed soon enough, courtesy of the inaugural United Pickleball State Championship Series, a set of tournaments conducted across all 50 states in the country. The Gold Medalists from each of these tournaments will automatically secure invitations to the year-end UPA World Championship in Dallas, TX, and all event fees will be waived. Onondaga Lake Park pickleball courts will be closed to the public for the duration of the tournament.
