Tis the Season

Twas the Night Before Christmas
When all Through the House,
Not a Creature was Stirring
Not even the Spouse.

When up on the Roof
There Arose Such a Clatter,
We sprang from our Bed
To see What was the Matter.

Then What to Our wondering
Eyes should Appear,
But a Chubby Old Elf
Sporting Pickleball Gear!

He Wasted no Time
But he Started to Dink,
Then Shouting a Challenge
He gave us a Wink.

We Slammed and We’d Lobbed
Then we started to Volley,
He placed his Kill Shot
Then got Oh So Jolly!

We Heard him Exclaim
As he Flew Out of Sight
Maybe Next Year with Practice
They’ll Put up A Fight!

HoHoHo..... Merry Christmas Everyone!

USAPA NEW Member Software

The New Software is almost here. Per the notice below, the current system will be off line this upcoming weekend. Additionally you will no longer be able to share an e-mail.

Date: December 9, 2016
Attention All USAPA Members:

Transition scheduled for December 16-19

We are extremely pleased and excited to announce that on Monday, December 19th 2016, we will be launching the much anticipated USAPA  Membership Automation System. When selecting this software we listened to your comments and feedback and wanted to ensure that we incorporated the top three features that you let us know were most important to you.
  • Real time processing
  • Ability to print your own Membership Cards
  • Ability to view and self-update personal contact information
In addition, the new system will provide:
  • Enhanced reporting features for management and ambassadors
  • New Partner-Search feature for tournament players
  • New Ambassador-Search feature
  • Revised Member Look-Up feature

To allow for the conversion and transition to the new system, the USAPA Membership Application and Renewal portion of the USAPA website will be shut down at 2:00p.m.EST (11:00a.m.PST) on Friday, Dec. 16. Memberships and renewals are scheduled to re-open at 11:00a.m.EST (8:00a.m.PST) on Monday, Dec 19.  No applications/payments can be accepted during this conversion.  We apologize for the inconvenience but the developers will work to get the new system up and running as soon as possible.

We recognize and appreciate that ease of use is always important in any new endeavor. We also know that there is a learning curve that is associated with a change of this sort.
CHANGES: To help with this conversion, there are a few changes that we wanted to bring to your attention right away:
  • Access to the new system will require a unique e-mail address for each member. No shared e-mails.
  • After accessing the system, you will set up a user-ID and password for future access to the USAPA Membership system.
  • A printable invoice will be generated as a record for your membership dues.
  • Checks can no longer be accepted in the mail without a printed copy of the invoice stub on the bottom of the new invoice
We hope you find this new system as exciting as we do.  And, we look forward to continuing to find ways to help you and support the growth of our sport.
