The USA Pickleball Association (USA Pickleball) is the national governing body for the sport of pickleball in the US and provides players with official rules, tournaments, rankings and promotional materials.
The association is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation and governed by a board of directors and professional staff who provide the guidance and infrastructure for the continued growth and development of the sport.
In December of 2004 George Erickson began to collect the names of people who might be interested in having indoor tennis courts. George sent a letter to those people and 3 years later the project was completed. The first Board that worked for 3 years to complete the project included: Kevin Engman, George Erickson, Dave Gunderson, Renee Galaski, Bob Prittinen, Tom Prosen and Jim Prittinen. Initially three possibilities were discussed for bringing indoor tennis to Virginia. It was decided that Southside Park would be the location and two of the outdoor courts would be utilized.
We raised approximately $700,000 through a variety of fundraising methods. The City of Virginia financed the remaining costs of our $1,000,000 facility.
A Grand Opening was held in the fall of 2007, and on September 1st, 2007, our doors were open for business.
We would like to thank everyone that helped bring indoor tennis to Virginia, MN. With four indoor courts and six newly resurfaced outdoor courts we feel that we have the nicest tennis facility north of Minneapolis.
