The Michiana Pickleball Association (MPA)

icon-home-5bulletin-board-smallWe have seen pickleball bring together diverse groups and make them the best of friends.  We have seen pickleball keep seniors active and healthy.  We have seen pickleball thrive in the school systems. ...and we have seen pickleball bring families together in one of the only sports that everyone in the family can play and be competitive.  The Michiana Pickleball Association was created as a 501(c)7 non-profit organization to create opportunities to engage and bring together the WHOLE FAMILY and the WHOLE COMMUNITY in the benefits of pickleball.


11/17/2019: Hi all...Eric Moore, the owner of the South Bend Racquet Club, would like to invite the MPA membership to an open forum about pickleball in our area.  He, along with senior SBRC management, can answer any questions that the membership may have for the SBRC.  More importantly, the membership can help answer questions that may shape the decisions of the club going forward with regards to pickleball. So plan to be there on Saturday, Nov. 23, at 6:30pm to visit with the owner. (Then stick around and play til 9:30pm!)

11/20/2019: Check out the new 15 minute professionaly produced video posted on the bulletin board "Celebrating 50 Years of Pickleball" featuring one of the original creators of the game Barney McCallum. Click here to see it posted on the bulletin board!
