team competition draft format

Team names are randomly drawn to determine the order in which Team Owners will select players for a dual (but directionally opposite) women’s and men’s snake draft format.  This draft format, the first of its kind in pickleball, ensures that doubles and mixed doubles pairings are novel and interesting, and also creates evenly-matched games full of drama and excitement.
