PPA Tour Completes Merger with Major League Pickleball

Choate represented PPA Tour and its owner, Dundon Capital Partners, in PPA Tour’s merger with Major League Pickleball. The consolidation of the two entities into a unified and definitive professional pickleball holding company is backed by new capital investments from private equity firm SC Holdings, D.C. Pickleball Team owner Al Tylis, PPA Tour owners Tom Dundon and the Pardoe Family, and a roster of existing MLP team owners. This merger combines the leading individual bracket-style tour and team-based professional pickleball formats, enhancing the fan experience and helping the sport continue to grow.
