Guest Housing


As Palm Creek is proudly cohosting USAPA Nationals VII, we would like to offer Guest Housing to USAPA Ambassadors. Some may stay only for one night, some a few days and others for the entire tournament which will run from November 8 -15.

If you will be at Palm Creek and have a second bedroom or a pull out couch and are willing to host our dedicated volunteers, you will be providing a service that will be very much appreciated. The guidelines, listed below, clarify what a host would need to do and what is the expected behavior of the guest.

Friendly neighbors, not members of the Palm Creek Pickleball Club, are also welcome to be a host.

Ambassadors will make their own travel plans and if not playing, they will be registering for Clinics, the Seminar and Ambassador Events which will all occur on November 12th.   We are coordinating this now because of all of the planning required for putting on an event this large.

If you are interested in being a host, please e-mail me with your preferences:

  • A single person or a couple
  • One night, a few days or the entire tournament
Any other preferences you may have, such as an ambassador from your home State!

I look forward to hearing from you!

November 8-15, 2015

A bedroom and nearby bathroom is provided for 1-2 Ambassadors during the tournament. It is important that this is conventional living space, not a built out shed or a Casita that does not have a proper bathroom.

Visiting Ambassadors must provide their own transportation.   We do not recommend you pick them up at an airport. They need a vehicle to get to/from the events and to go out to eat, get groceries, sightsee etc.

Hosts should provide some refrigerator space, & time & methods for Ambassadors to prepare their own breakfast.

Ambassadors can bring snacks for lunches & they also can usually get food at the events. They should plan on going out to dinner daily.

Ambassadors MAY take Hosts out to eat and Hosts may invite Ambassadors to share an evening meal with them at home.

Ambassadors should give some gratuity such as a gift certificate, perhaps at a local restaurant.

Thoughtfulness and consideration are the orders of the day.
