Funky Pickle Miami Open Presented by Battier Take Charge Foundation

Our second annual Funky Pickle Miami Open was held Saturday, April 13th at the William H. Kerdyk Biltmore Tennis Center. It was a day filled with food, fun, and fierce competition—all culminating in the crowning of our Miami Open pickleball champions.

This year's event transcended the boundaries of a mere pickleball tournament – it transformed into an unforgettable party! Over the course of two days, enthusiasts and supporters came together, turning this event into a monumental success with an incredible turnout. It was a big dill! We extend our deepest gratitude to our invaluable friends, volunteers, staff, partners, and sponsors who played an instrumental role in making this event a resounding success: Funky Pickle Pro, World Red Eye, Coastal Building Maintenance, Truist, 11 Vodka, Pollo Tropical, Banza, The Tank Brewing Co., Killa Dinks, Rokne Pickleball, Sellkirk, Rush Order Tees, Big Smile Printing, Kona Ice, Smoothie Squad, and Z-Cocina Mexican Food Truck. As the curtains close on another successful annual pickleball tournament, our commitment to supporting our scholars through college and beyond remains steadfast. Together, we've not only celebrated the spirit of pickleball but also empowered the dreams of future generations. Thank you to everyone who contributed to making this event a remarkable success! And now, we close with the famous last words, "One more game!" See you next year, Miami! Stay tuned for more updates on our ongoing initiatives and events.
