The Summit County Pickleball Association was incorporated in February 2018 to succeed the informal Summit County Pickleball Club, which had existed since 2011 and was profiled in this Summit Daily article from 2015.
SCPA is a tax-exempt, all-volunteer, nonprofit corporation that promotes the growth and development of pickleball as a healthful activity among players of all ages and characteristics, residing in or visiting the community of Summit County, Colorado. Toward that end, we intend to:
- Foster and promote amateur sports competition in pickleball;
- Encourage, sanction and conduct pickleball tournaments and exhibitions;
- Financially assist local governments and other entities within Summit County, Colorado in planning and funding the construction and maintenance of pickleball courts and supporting infrastructure;
- Offer pickleball training and lessons to the public; and
- Carry on other similar activities permitted by such a nonprofit corporation.
