USAPA Ambassadors

Ambassadors are volunteers who have pledged to promote the sport of pickleball and the USAPA in the local area that they represent. They are individuals or couples who work with the communities, clubs, and other various recreational facilities to guide and help build pickleball programs for all to enjoy. These Ambassadors work together as a teams within their Districts and across their Region to enhance the development of the USAPA and pickleball. The main prerequisite is a love of the sport and the desire to share our game with others of all ages.

WATCH AN AMBASSADOR IN ACTION

Watch now to see the story of Rocky Clark and how he started a pickleball group right on his own neighborhood street! But with tough winters in Maine, the sport had to spread indoors to keep the play going. Now the number of people playing is over 200 and there are multiple indoor and outdoor places to play!
