USAPA Ambassador - Prescott Valley

Dannyboy retired here from Phoenix, and has been playing pickleball for 5 years. He became a USAPA Pickleball Ambassador to leverage his organizational skills to promote the USAPA. For several years he has put together HOA themed pickleball tournaments in Prescott Valley, and created S.N.A.P.S – Senior Northern Arizona Pickleball Slam – an annual statewide event. The Prescott Valley Event Center will, for the 3rd time, host the SNAPS Pickleball Tournament (July 22 – 24, 2018).

“We have such a wonderful pickleball family here!!” He can’t say enough about the volunteers who help so much with these events.

DB gives lessons at Pronghorn Ranch for newcomers and intermediate players.

Member-At-Large

My interest in pickleball was ignited when I moved to Prescott Valley in 2014.

Bob Atherton, Northern AZ USAPA District Ambassador, encouraged me into being an Ambassador in Prescott Valley. We are volunteers who support and represent the USAPA in developing the sport. I am a recreational player still learning the game.
