World Pickleball Series headed to South Florida

South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that  a World Pickleball Series is headed to South Florida in the coming months.

Residents from throughout the country are expected to register for the upcoming four events that are expected to attract over 1,500 pro and amateur participants. Two events are USA Pickleball-sanctioned tournaments, meaning results count toward player ratings and the events abide by USA Pickleball rules and requirements.
