Major League Pickleball announced during the 2022 Live Draft Reveal Show that the prize money for 2022 would exceed $100,000 for the winning 4-player team in each of the 3 events. That means each player on the winning team will walk away with $25,000 each, by far the biggest prize money in pickleball history.
“MLP is committed to growing the game of Pickleball, and as we witness its meteoric growth, we want to make sure the professional players also see growth in prize money. It’s important for these players to be able to make a living playing pickleball and we will support them in every way possible. From the amazing player services we offer at all our events, to promoting players and their platforms, to offering the highest prize money events in pro pickleball, MLP is committed to elevating the sport”, said CEO and Founder of MLP Steve Kuhn.
