We were frustrated with the voids that existed in pickleball. . .
So we did something about it. After founding the first team-based pickleball league in 2012, the East Valley Interclub League (EVIL), Greg Mather and a team of volunteers created the Arizona Pickleball Players League (APPL). APPL brings an organized and team-based format to others who had not experienced pickleball league play before. Now more than 3,000 people across the state of Arizona are making meaningful connections and developing new skills with other players. Players participate on 6-10 player teams using a format that had not existed before in their pickleball community.
APPL’s one-of-a-kind team-style structure is making Arizona pickleball more accessible and more exciting than ever before.
