What is PickleSlam?

PickleSlam is the epitome of pickleball excitement! It marks our grand series of three annual tournaments, and what makes it truly special is that it’s the first-ever outdoor pickleball tournament in Singapore.

As players gather under the open skies, the competition heats up, creating an unforgettable experience of skill, strategy, and camaraderie.

Join us for the thrill of the game, the joy of the outdoors, and the celebration of pickleball excellence at PickleSlam. The first series of PickleSlam will only consist of Men’s Doubles, Women’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles.
