Pickleball Hall Of Fame

Would you like to nominate someone?
This all you need to know from Elizabeth Higginbottom - This years chair

Hopefully by now most, if not all, of you have heard about the Pickleball Hall of Fame.   But if not I would like to share this with you.  We in the Nominating Committee are hard at work choosing the 2018 Nominees.   We need your help in raising awareness of the nomination process so we can gather more applications.    

Pickleball Hall of Fame

The Pickleball Hall of Fame was formed in 2017 to recognize individuals who have achieved exceptional results in Pickleball play over the course of their career, as well as those who have made exceptional contributions to the growth, development and leadership of the game. All candidates should have also
demonstrated a high level of character, integrity, sportsmanship and consideration for others and thus
earned the respect and admiration of their peers. Nomination applications are submitted by the general public through the Pickleball Hall of Fame website

and go through an extensive nomination and selection process. The top candidates are chosen by the Nomination Committee to send through to the Selection Committee . The Selection Committee then choses the
Pickleball Hall of Fame Inductees from amongst these Nominees. Nomination applications are being accepted for 2018 candidates through April 1, 2018.  2018 Nominees will be announced at the US Open in April and the Inductees will be announced at the Nationals in November.
So, how can you help this process? It's easy! Just fill out a nomination application for your favorite player

Or your favorite contributor.

and have them join this prestigious group!
