Pickleball players and friends of pickleball have partnered with the City of Prescott and Yavapai County to build state-of-the-art pickleball courts at Pioneer Park Sports Complex. In May 2017, Prescott got its first public pickleball courts, and the Prescott Pickleball Association (PPA) formed a players association.
The mission of PPA is to provide programs and events to the Prescott community and value to PPA members through members programs.
- There will be a PPA board meeting on June 7 at 6PM at the Grace Sparkes Activity Center, 824 East Gurley Street. The agenda of this meeting includes an update on the FOUR MORE fundraising, a proposal to get an EIN and financial accounts, the development of a strategic planning team, the October elections and tournament updates. The time of this meeting is designed to accommodate those who have asked for a meeting time after work. All are welcome to attend.
- There will be a strategic planning committee convened to determine the short and long term plans for PPA. We are looking for people willing to serve on this ad hoc committee. The strategic planning committee will meet on July 21 and July 28 for a day long meeting starting at 9AM at the Grace Sparkes Activity Center, 824 East Gurley. If you are interested and can make at least one of these meetings, please contact Kevin Costa or Peg Travers. We hope to get 15 people who are interested in defining this association’s plan, visions, and short and long term goals.
- Great news for pickleball! On May 22, 2018, the Prescott City Council approved $30,000 from the Acker Foundation to be used for building more pickleball courts. Now the pickleball is in our courts! The FOUR MORE Campaign is on! If you are thinking of a worthy cause for a donation, think PICKLEBALL! You can donate by using the donation option on our website or send a check to PO Box 3361, Prescott AZ 86302. Just make the check out to ACF and on the memo line: PPA+4. If you know of a business or have a business that would like to donate, please let us know. The sooner we raise the money, the sooner we will get FOUR MORE built! Remember, we are a 501(c)3, and eligible for a tax credit.
— Peg Travers, President of PPA
