About Junior PPA

Junior PPA is a campaign dedicated to fostering youth pickleball players through competition events, development opportunities, and social activity. Junior PPA offers a spotlight for youth athletes around the world to showcase their talents, develop physical and mental skills, and compete against other top juniors in the rising community of pickleball. Junior PPA events will transpire alongside certain sports of the PPA Tour, where the top professional pickleball players in the world play. 

Our Mission

At Junior PPA, our mission is to promote, encourage, and advance youth pickleball by creating opportunities for athletes 16 years of age and under to compete, learn, and grow in a positive and fun environment. The Junior PPA’s approach is intended to strengthen the skill set, health, and character of youth, as well as the culture of youth pickleball. 

Our Vision

We strive to be committed to youth development while encouraging continued participation in the community of pickleball. We hope to use our resources, platform, and passion to inspire the next generation of pickleball athletes.
