We have established a volunteer organization to promote national play and competition, maintain the global rules of Pickleball, the code of conduct for Pickleball athletes as laid down by the IFP (International Federation of Pickleball) and USAPA (United States of America Pickleball Association) and the code of teaching as presented by the IPTPA (International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association).
We will focus resources on training and mentoring individuals to establish organizations that perpetuate the sport nationally.
I noticed the pickleball group on Meetup and I thought it was something I would like to try. It’s been a wonderful experience. The pickleball players have ben so welcoming, patient and friendly. I’m really enjoying the social side and have quickly become addicted to the game. I’d love to go to the US or South America for a pickleball holiday.
My first introductory session was fun and it was easier than I thought! Quite a diverse range of ages in our group from 40-73. The instructor Mark was very helpful and patient with us and by the end of the session we were playing an actual game... Definitely coming back to play again!
