Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in North America, and this is especially true in Aitkin, Minnesota. Aitkin and the surrounding community built this association to encourage and support people of all ages and abilities to join the sport of pickleball.
WHAT IS AITKIN AREA PICKLEBALL ASSOCIATION?
The mission of the Aitkin Area Pickleball Association (AAPA) is to promote and facilitate the sport of pickleball throughout the greater Aitkin County area.
To accomplish this objective, we will maintain the necessary equipment (nets, paddles, balls); provide basic pickleball instruction and additional coaching; administer guidelines for the optimum use of available courts; work cooperatively with other relevant groups; and foster goodwill, sportsmanship, and fellowship among our members.
