This article was published in the most recent USAPA Newsletter. The USAPA is asking that Pickleball players everywhere participate in a brief survey. Please consider filling this out, it only takes 15 minutes or less. These results are very helpful for the USAPA in regards to focus and marketing efforts. The USAPA is working diligently to grow this great sport both nationally and internationally. Also, if you are not already, please consider becoming a member of the USAPA, it would be a nice Christmas gift to give or to ask for!!! You might be asking yourself which Region has the most significant number of members, Ambassadors and venues? One first thinks of the states of Arizona, Florida or Washington. Nope! The Great Lakes Region, primarily Michigan, is home to 517 USAPA members, 123 Ambassadors and 329 courts! We can’t let Michigan beat out OHIO!!! Here is a link if you are interested in becoming a USAPA member http://usapa.org/memberships/index.php

Pickleball Research Study
By Bill Booth, USAPA President
Thank you! More than 2100 of you have already completed the pickleball research survey. We truly appreciate your collaboration in this project.
If you have not yet been able to participate, you still can. Simply click on this link. It takes about 15 minutes.
The Results: We’re learning a great deal from the survey responses about your motivation for participating in pickleball, your competitive behavior, and your views of pickleball. Once the survey is finished and we have analyzed the results, we will be sharing the findings with you. We will also publish our response to many of the comments and suggestions.
We are grateful to CUNEF University and Dr. Michael Hess, professor of sport marketing and management, for designing and sponsoring the survey at no cost to the USAPA.
