Welcome to the United States of America Pickleball Association (USAPA) Mid-South Region website. We hope this site proves useful in finding information regarding tournaments, clinics/workshops, etc., in the region. We also have links to the USAPA home page providing rules, places to play, and many other items of interest. We want to communicate with both tournament and recreational pickleball players. Our main goal is to help promote and grow the sport of pickleball.
I have played pickleball in all six states of this region and can assure you that I have been treated graciously in every venue. So feel free to take a short trip and play away from home, meet some great people, and continue building the goodwill that pickleball brings.
Mid-South Region Ambassador
