We are excited to host our first ever 2023 Islands Open Pickleball Tournament for the Les Cheneaux Islands, MI. Proceeds for this event will help purchase and install permanent net posts and nets, and raise funds for future resurfacing / expansion. Additionally, we get to support our local businesses by inviting in the pickleball community to visit our wonderful area!
The center of the Les Cheneaux Islands is Cedarville, MI in the Eastern Upper peninsula. This island chain is made up of 36 islands forming protected waterways and bays used by every kind of recreational boater, kayaker, fishermen, water skiers to list just a few.
Accommodations: We have small private motels, a larger motel, and many resorts with cabins. There are several campgrounds in the area as well. When it’s time to eat, we have several restaurants in Cedarville and Hessel, including a hometown distillery.
Other points of interest include two museums, one displaying local lifestyles of the past, and the Maritime Museum showcasing the boatbuilding and influence of wooden boats such as Chris-Crafts. We have the Great Lakes Boatbuilding School, one of only four accredited such schools in the country. The Culinary School located in Hessel, is affiliated with Lake Superior State University and graduates chefs creating farm to table fare.

Format: Round robin format, with medals awarded to top three teams. We reserve the right to make adjustments to brackets as needed and as space allows (ie. for a larger pool, a playoff might be needed). We also reserve the right to combine brackets as needed based on time and space. If needed, we will combine age groups first before combining skill levels.
