The National Paddleball Association's National Doubles Championships in partnership with Gearbox Sports will once again return to the outstanding Sparrow Michigan Athletic Club in East Lansing, Michigan. This April 20-22 event will provide a full offering of doubles divisions, something for paddleball players of all levels. If you have an idea for a division not listed, and you think we can get at least four teams, please let us know. We are receptive to new possibilities.
Players can expect to have at least two matches in each division, receive a quality tournament T-shirt, and much more. Spectators are sure to see some incredible paddleball. Some of the best paddleball players in the country will be there to compete for national titles.
Todd Entrikin and Emmett Coe have won the last four National Open Doubles Championships and intend to earn the fifth this year. Can anyone stop this dynamic California team?
