 The more members, the more representation, and the bigger voice we have to advocate for the local 
pickleball community. This benefits all of us!

Your Golden Gate Pickleball member dues allow us to provide the following:

Perform community and neighborhood outreach, including demos, coaching, and clinics. Youth programs include starter kit grants to schools, educational clinics for students and faculty, assisting 
in start-ups of school clubs, assisting in lining new courts, organizing competitive youth tournaments 
around the Bay Area, and providing pathways for youth development and collegiate scholarships. 
 Collaboration with a network of Bay Area pickleball organizations and national companies to build a 
pathway from amateur to professional level play. This includes the GGP-sponsored and hosted Battle of 
the Bay Invitational MLP to showcase the highest DUPR-rated amateurs in the greater Bay Area. 
 Advocate for the expansion of facilities dedicated to the sport, including working with local government 
agencies and other pickleball groups to improve existing facilities and to identify potential locations for 
more pickleball courts. Always with an emphasis on dedicated courts. 
 Fund expenses for purchase and maintenance of pickleball courts and equipment, including balls, ball 
machines, nets, chalk/tape for lines, and court drying machines (i.e., Vaptr and squeegees).
