The Association of Pickleball Players has announced an update to its 2023 APP Tour schedule, introducing its inaugural APP U.S. Indoor Championships scheduled for November 29 through December 3 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
The 2023 APP U.S. Indoor Championships will be the only indoor event on the schedule. It marks the APP’s return to its hometown as the second APP Tour event in the Chicago metro area this season, joining the Chicago Open. The venue will feature competition on Pickleball United’s True Courts and a centerpiece Championship Court.
Amateurs of all ages and skill levels will compete alongside the sport’s top professionals in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles events.
“We’re thrilled to bring another APP Tour event to our hometown of Chicago in 2023 with our first-ever APP U.S. Indoor Championships,” said APP Founder Ken Herrmann. “This is an exciting new event for us, one we will continue to develop and grow over the coming years. The ever-increasing demand from pickleball players across Illinois and the Midwest has been remarkable and we can’t wait to host another packed house in Chicago.”
The event also marks the final stop of AARP Masters Division action on the 2023 APP Tour for pros aged 60 and above. Player registration for the 2023 APP U.S. Indoor Championships is now open. In conjunction with the APP event, attendees can participate in activities including ice skating at Parkway Bank Park, festive lights at Impact Field and live entertainment at Allstate Arena and the Rosemont Theatre.
