It is rare to be able to compete for prize money as amateur pickleball players, but the World Pickleball Tour (WPT) has cash prizes. It is only one of the ways Alex Horn, Ben Harrison, and Jacob Taylor from the WPT make their events player-friendly.
In this episode, we discuss:
- How the WPT started and why it is different from other tournament series
- What it means to be fan-focused and how they can run tournaments smoothly
- How many events they are running this year, and where they are located
- Why the tournaments they run are currently unsanctioned
- How do they determine where to host events
- What is Pickleball tourism
