There’s a new pickleball association just for players 65 and older:
Super Senior International Pickleball Association (SSIPA)
Mission Statement: The Mission of the Super Senior International Pickleball Association (SSIPA) is to support the growth of Pickleball around the world, through a social, competitive environment for players of all skill levels ages 65 plus.
Super Senior International Pickleball Association was formed in 2016 to promote Pickleball among our very active senior population in this country and internationally. As we get older our generation continues to strive for participation in friendly competition with our fellow seniors and develop friendships that will last a life time. As we age gracefully and continue to strive for wellness through competition, the SSIPA just might be one more piece of the puzzle of life.
The SSIPA supports the Super Senior International Pickleball Tournament Circuit allowing players to compete with other players in their age group – 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, and 80+. Any event that had 3 or more teams entered would make a bracket. If groups were combined, players would have the option to play down in age or receive a refund.
More information, membership application, and tournament calendar is available on the webpage. Use your computer for sign-up – mobile phone application available later. More tournaments will be added in 2017.
