May 05, 2022

USA Pickleball is excited to announce the second annual USA Pickleball National Indoor Championships will be played on June 7-11 at the Finley Center, part of the Hoover Met Complex in Hoover, Alabama, just outside of Birmingham. Nearly 1,000 players are expected, all competing in age/skill brackets. 

The National Indoor Championships will feature five days of events featuring singles, doubles and mixed doubles in skill/age brackets. Gold medalists from each division will receive a pre-registration spot for the 2022 USA Pickleball National Championships. The sport’s premier event will be played at Indian Wells, California on November 5 - 13, 2022.  

“It is an honor for the City of Hoover to host the USA Pickleball National Indoor National Championship for the second year in a row,” said Hoover Mayor Frank V. Brocato.

“We continue to see this sport growing in our city.  Hosting the tournament will only add to that enthusiasm. I know the tournament participants will receive great hospitality from our city staff, residents, businesses, and community.  We look forward to another great event!”

Registration for the 2022 USA Pickleball National Indoor Championships is officially open at pickleballtournaments.com.

The Finley Center is a state-of-the-art sports complex and event venue that will transform its 83,000 square feet of indoor playing space into 28 pickleball courts. A Stadium Court for championship play will also be featured for tournament action. “Aside from being an outstanding facility, the complex also offers Hoover RV Park and plenty of parking for players and spectators alike. We couldn’t have asked for a better facility to stage our indoor championship,” said Stu Upson, USA Pickleball CEO. Additional site information can be found at www.hoovermetcomplex.com.
