USAPA Ambassador Program 2010 Mini-Plans:
A useful compendium of best practices for the growth of pickleball
The USAPA Ambassador Program 2010 Mini-Plans were initiated by Dick Manasseri. Ambassadors collaborated to set reasonable goals, mutually support one another, and implement best practices to promote the growth of pickleball. In the process, they rediscovered the FUN of being an active member of the community that promotes pickleball.
Dick Manasseri simplified the process to the point that an individual Ambassador or a team of Ambassadors filled-in-the-blanks to choose 2-3 best practices. 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.
