European Pickleball Association

Updated – May 16, 2016

Thank you for your interest in being part of the formation of the European Pickleball Association.

We will use this page as a temporary online home for the association leading up to our first official meeting during the International Pickleball Tournament in Amsterdam.

Check back soon for recap from our first Pickleball Europe Meeting.

Agenda:

  • identifying how the association could help us all grow the sport – coordination (dates and times) of our national tournaments; the establishment of an European Pickleball Championship Tournament; and Sponsorship and Funding to help grow the sport
  • identifying the next steps in officially forming the association (being registered, creating bylaws, mission statements, goals, timelines, etc)
  • vote on formation of an official European Pickleball Association (similar to the USAPA)
  • elections of founding officers (1 year term) to led efforts listed above.
  • assignment of committee work (Marketing, Education, Tournaments, Membership)

If your pickleball club/association is interested in taking part in this inaugural meeting – please complete this form.

I will be complying the information submitted on that form – adding it to the map above, to the list of Founding Members on the right, as well as put the information together in the Inside the Numbers section below.

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to send me an email.

I look forward to meeting you in person, working together on growing our beloved sport, and playing in the tournament vs each other.

Play the game!
