The USA Pickleball Association is the

primary governing body for the sport.

 

The USAPA website provides guidance on training,

 playing locations and points-of-contact by state and city.

 

   Whether playing locally or while traveling,

                        you should know your Pickleball Rating.

  Knowing will assist you in setting up interesting, competitive, and fair play.
