PHOENIX — USA Pickleball, the National Governing Body for the sport, today announced the launch of the organization’s official charitable arm, “USA Pickleball Serves”. The announcement leads into National Pickleball Month in April.

The mission of USA Pickleball Serves is to make a positive national impact through the sport of pickleball by supporting community initiatives like court enhancements, educational youth programming and inclusive play.

“It is our pleasure to launch the charitable branch of USA Pickleball – USA Pickleball Serves. This is an opportunity to serve communities around the country on and off the court” said Mike Nealy, USA Pickleball Chief Executive Officer. “USA Pickleball Serves is a platform for the pickleball community to rally together and implement change through promoting, teaching, and growing the sport.”
