The governing body for pickleball in the United States has a new name, website, logo, and URL – usapickleball.org. As a brand re-launch, the official name has changed from USAPA to USA Pickleball Association. Those new to the sport and seasoned pickleball athletes alike are encouraged to visit or revisit this website. Pictona.org has a direct link at https://usapickleball.org/.
The 2020 Official Rulebook can be accessed and downloaded at https://usapickleball.org/what-is-pickleball/ifp-official-rules/. In addition to the rulebook is a shorter summary and a document highlighting the 2020 changes. And after learning the rules, you can even take a 50 question test (https://usapickleball.org/play/rules-tests/player-test/). Give it a try and impress your pickleball friends with your knowledge.
If you have friends who are wondering what is this phenomenon called pickleball, refer them to the short video https://usapickleball.org/what-is-pickleball/. And then bring them to Pictona!
