Dear Pickleball Players, Programmers, and Promoters,


The Pickleball Promoters How-to Guide:

     Best practices and resources to expedite the growth of pickleball


The Pickleball Promoters How-to Guide is a collaborative work in progress.


The idea of documenting and sharing pickleball best practices in the form of a How-to Guide was:

·         initiated by Dick Manasseri

·         set into motion by the Great Lakes Pickleball Action Network via the 2009 Regional Plan

·         developed by USAPA Board Members and Ambassadors via the USAPA How-to Group and 2010 Mini-Plans. 


The 2010 Mini-Plan template and archive files continue to serve as a useful compendium of best practices for the growth of pickleball. The focus attributes of growth included recreation, competition, communication, publicity and membership.


Select USAPA How-to Group pages and files are being made publicly available on this website in the form of a free online How-to Guide. The purpose of the How-to Guide is to provide a growing sense of community for pickleball promoters as we endeavor to spread the good news about this game we love.


The How-to Guide includes best practices and sample documents. You are welcome to download the attachments and revise them to meet your specific needs. There is no sense in re-inventing the wheel, so let's share about what works well and maybe even about what hasn't been so successful.


The How-to Guide is the result of contributions from collaborators (nearby and across the continents) assisting one another in our passion to PLAY and promote the growth of Pickleball.  More Pickleball = More FUN!!!


Yours in pickleball, Janet RaZz
