Please help the Platteville Area Pickleball Association (PAPA) raise $25,000 to name a pickleball court in our soon-to-be dedicated pickleball facility for the essential health care workers of COVID-19. Your donation will assure that this indispensable group will be recognized FOREVER with permanent signage reading “Dedicated to the essential health care workers of COVID-19.”
PAPA was founded in the fall of 2020 with the goal of promoting the fastest growing sport in the USA, pickleball, in Southwest Wisconsin. Our first project, in partnership with the City of Platteville Parks Department, is the design and construction of a dedicated pickleball facility. NOTE: currently players erect temporary nets and lines are drawn on tennis courts with chalk or string. In our research, we found that the nearest quality courts are in Dubuque, IA (30 minutes), Eldridge, IA (1 hour, 20 minutes), and Madison, WI (1 hour).
We are committed to promoting pickleball and providing a quality experience to ALL players (ranging from teenagers through senior citizens). Join us! Both with a donation and with your plan to 'come play with us' in Platteville.
