Pure Michigan Pickleball

The "Pure Michigan" music … Tim Allen's voice…

The sound of Pickleball's "POP" and the laughter that follows…

Someday, Pickleball will be part of the official "Pure Michigan" story.

One big step in that direction is the decision of the West Michigan Sports Commission to include
Pickleball in the 2011 Meijer State Games of Michigan,
June 24-26, 2011 in Grand Rapids.
Check out the 2010 Meijer States Games of Michigan at http://www.stategamesofmichigan.com/

Notice the professional organization of the State Games and mark your calendar for next year. (Pickleball will be added to this website later this year with the details for 2011.)

Stay tuned for more information from USAPA Ambassadors Dick Draigh, Jeanne Schowalter and John Schowalter. They prepared and presented our proposal to be accepted in the 2011 Games, and Dick is serving as our Pickleball Commissioner for the event.
