The CAPA board hopes this finds you doing well! We are all looking forward to outdoor play soon!
Membership is continuing to grow. We currently have over 900 members!
Remember a benefit of being a CAPA member is the ability to join the Madison Pickleball Meetup Group! If you'd like to find a place and time to play that works in your schedule, in addition to meeting new players, the Madison Pickleball Meetup Group is for you! You need to request to join the meetup group. You will receive a short email asking if you're a CAPA member and after you say yes, you'll be approved!
Our Meetup organizers offer different levels of play - Beginner, Novice and Intermediate - all season long. Because the Meetup group has become so popular, we are asking for members to volunteer to organize events at different locations. It's super easy to do! As an organizer, all you have to do is schedule a time and place to Meetup, welcome other members and play! It's a great opportunity to gather other players on your schedule!! Contact Shelley Reynolds to volunteer!
