Major League Pickleball (MLP) drafts are something that pickleball fans look forward to every year. As the 2024 season draws near, let's explore all you need to know about this fascinating occasion.

The MLP Competition Format

In contrast to PPA events, which feature solo, tournament-style play, MLP offers a distinctive team-based concept. The key aspects are as follows:
1. Team Composition: Two men and two women make up an MLP team's roster of four players. There are two leagues in which these teams play: Premier and Challenger.
2. Match Structure: A doubles match consists of two gender doubles and two mixed doubles when two teams compete against one another. Rally scoring is used in matches played to a new 25-point format beginning in 2024. Forget about holding out for match point when serving! Every participant also takes part in two matches.
3. Dreambreaker: After the first four games, if the teams are tied 2-2, a dreambreaker occurs. In four singles points, players compete against each other. The match is won by the dreambreaker winner.

Premier Level Draft

Tuesday, April 2, at 6 p.m. ET, is when the much awaited MLP Premier Level draft is set to take place. PPA's Dallas offices will serve as the operational hub for this virtual event. This is how it operates:
1. Dynamic Bidding Process: Teams can bid on draft slots with their allotted "currency" budget. They probably have their sights set on certain talents even if they bid on spaces rather than specific individuals.
2. Live Streaming: The PPA and MLP YouTube channels, in addition to PickleballTV.com, will broadcast live coverage of the first two hours of the draft. Keep an eye to see the action as it unfolds!
3. Pick Selection: Following a successful bid, a team has three minutes to choose a player. Budgets and hiring talent are strategically danced around.
The Premier draft is followed by the Challenger Level draft, which is scheduled for Wednesday, April 3, at 6 p.m. ET. It's not as well-known, but it's just as important for teams looking to improve their rosters.
A draft position is randomly assigned to each team and is known at least one week in advance. The late-round selections are guaranteed to clubs with early picks thanks to the snake draft process. The draft slots for a team with the first pick, for instance, are 1, 24, 25, 48, 49, and 72.
So, pickleball enthusiasts, take note of the dates! Build-winning teams, strategy, and suspense are all promised in the 2024 MLP drafts. Anyone who is interested in the sport should watch these drafts, regardless of experience level or curiosity.
