Comments on USAPA National Pickleball Tournament

The first national tournament sponsored by the USA Pickleblall Association is being held in Buckeye, Arizona, November 2 to 8, 2009.  One day in the future, this will be an historical event!  It establishes the importance of the USAPA as being our national governing body and gives meaning to being a member.  Only current members of the USAPA can compete in this tournament.  There are a total of 701 entries in five different divisions - junior; young adult; adult; senior and open.  The number of entries in the senior and open divisions indicate the escalating interest among the 50 and older pickleball players in this country.  This tournament is a major “feather in the cap” of the USAPA!!  The direction of pickleball in this country is up, up and up thanks to the many volunteers in the USAPA!
