Our Mission

We are a non-profit association whose mission is to advocate, educate, and develop pickleball in communities for players of all skill ranges and demographics. This can be accomplished by:

  • Providing continuous education and advocacy to the decision makers on the changing needs of the pickleball community on existing and future facilities (indoor/outdoor), scheduling and programming.

  • Creating events and programming in communities that support, but are not limited to, the novice, intermediate, advanced, recreational, social, and professional pickleball player.

  • Becoming the main resource for members, players, facility operators, city and state directors, tournament directors, new players and all other community members that are seeking pickleball information.
