2023 English OPEN

Relive the excitement of the English OPEN with the PickleballEngland Official video of the event.  Adam Pitt was our videographer for the event.

WOW, we turned Telford International Centre, Shropshire  into a 40 court pickleball venue for 4 days and it was EPIC!

All the results are available.  Wheelchair, Junior and Men Without Partner event results are here  All other results are in Pickleball England’s Tournament Software (PETS). Simply click on the red button below.  Congratulations to all the winners.

The weather outside could not have been worse, thankfully we opted to run an indoor tournament.  We were hoping to mark some courts out in the car park but the weather ruled that out. 

The smiles inside the venue were bright and hardly wavered.  There was surprise and delight at how Telford International Centre looked like it was made to house 40 pickleball courts!

1059 players, almost 500 spectators and 11 booths filled Telford International Centre.

Our photographer for the event was Joshua Bratt. This Link will take you to our google drive of  photos, where you can view and download them.

Clinics with the PROs

We had almost 500 people register to come along and spectate over the 4 days of the event.  A lot of them wanted to watch family and friends but it is good to know that pickleball is attracting people to watch.

The Franklin X40 was the official ball and Franklin nets  the official net of the English OPEN.
