Rob Cassidy Joins USA Pickleball Rules Committee

Chairman of the USA Pickleball Rules Committee, Mark Peifer, has announced that Rob Cassidy will be joining the USA Pickleball Rules Committee as the sixth member of the committee, effective August 6, 2021.   “Rob brings a wealth of rules and player experience to the Committee.  As a player on the professional level – and sometimes as a referee – he brings not only a different type of experience, but also a strong desire to help sustain the game as fun and competitive.  I’m pleased he has accepted the invitation to join the committee.”

“I’m honored to be selected as part of this committee to help maintain and uphold the sanctity of the game.  I feel I can relate to the everyday recreational player as well as the professional level player in making sure the rules of pickleball keep pace with the needs of all players”, said Rob upon agreeing to serve.

Rob joins current USA Pickleball Rules Committee members Simone Jardim, Ken Schoonover, Jeff Shank, Karen Parrish and Mark Peifer.
