To promote the sport of Pickleball in El Paso County CO through education, training and conduct of amateur sports competitions; and to help reduce the financial burdens of local Government through funding for Pickleball court construction, improvements and maintenance.
PPPA has over 1000+ members and we play almost daily at the Monument Valley Park courts: See map here.
Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court (indoor or outdoor) with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It requires a perforated plastic ball similar to a wiffle ball and a flat-surfaced wood, composite, or graphite paddle about twice the size of a ping-pong paddle.
