Provide youth with opportunities to compete in pickleball. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the United States and we are connecting youth pickleballers all across the state. The inherent physical, social, and emotional benefits of playing pickleball encourages a healthy lifestyle. Everyone can play pickleball!
We are excited to offer the first official Junior Pickleball Organization. This organization will run much like the other major tennis associations where we offer organized tournaments, team events, leagues, state rankings, and other JPO-sanctioned events.
Players can earn points and rankings according to their success in those events. This earned ranking can also allow junior players to earn spots in more prestigious “invitation-only” type national events. With pickleball on the rise and pickleball scaling fast nationally, the Junior Pickleball Association (Utah’s JPO) wants to ride this wave of excitement and help junior players enjoy this sport to their fullest potential.
