Local Physical Educators Introduced to Pickleball

June 22, 2018

Local USAPA Ambassdadors Susan Manolis and Joan Gillespie, along with friends Mark Merrill, Bob Ham and Nancy Howe joined Steve Manolis in introducing pickleball to 15 Kyrene School District PE teachers.


We donated 8 paddles, 2 dozen balls and a portable net to the host school.


Each PE teacher received a 2018 IFP Rules Book and age appropriate curriculum packet to teach student ages 5-13.


This brings a total of 27 PE teachers in SE Valley of Phoenix that have been introduced to pickleball.


We are seeing a huge upward trend in the game at the grammar and middle school levels.


Also with us were two grammar school students (ages 5 and 8) who learned to play.
