The mission of the USA Pickleball Association (USA Pickleball) is to promote the development and growth of pickleball in the United States and its territories. 

Pickleball will succeed best if its Ambassadors and participants embrace the values of good sportsmanship. It is essential that USA Pickleball Ambassadors in promoting this mission, model good behavior, lead by example, and show self-control in pledging as follows: 

  • I will not engage in unsportsmanlike conduct or encourage others to do so. 
  • I will not engage in any behavior that would endanger the health, safety, or wellbeing of others. 
  • I will not engage in the use of obscene language or gestures. 
  • I will not flaunt my position. 
  • I will not use USA Pickleball records or materials for personal gain. 
  • I will treat others with respect. 
  • I will exhibit fairness and honesty in my dealings with others. 
  • I will support USA Pickleball policies, procedures, plans and initiatives. 
  • I will accept responsibility for my own actions. 
  • I will exemplify the highest standard in ethical behavior and fair play. 
  • I will engage in conduct that is free from fear, discrimination, abuse, and harassment.
