USAPA Representatives Set for Promotional Trip to Shenzhen, China
The trip is sponsored by Shenzhen University on behalf of the Chinese government. USAPA representatives will participate in opening ceremonies, conduct a presentation on the sport of pickleball and organize an on-court demonstration and skills session with Chinese sports and cultural leaders. “This is an incredible opportunity for USAPA and the sport of pickleball,” says Thomas. “China is a tremendous market that’s ripe for our sport. We are looking forward to promoting pickleball and providing their representatives with information on joining the International Federation of Pickleball (IFP) and establishing a working relationship with their representatives to assist in their growth and development.”
The opportunity was made possible through hard work and dedication of USAPA member and top player, Daniel Moore. Daniel has been instrumental in recent years traveling throughout Asia and Pacific Rim countries promoting pickleball, organizing tours and helping local clubs get established. This trip is a direct result of his efforts.
