The purpose of the Itasca County Pickelball Association (ICPA) is to promote the sport of pickleball throughout the greater Itasca County area, to facilitate the use of the pickleball courts and equipment, make rules and regulations for their optimum use and to foster goodwill, sportsmanship and fellowship among its members.


Striving For Excellence

Pickleball. Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two, three, or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications. Pickleball was invented in the mid 1960s as a children’s backyard pastime but quickly became popular among adults as a fun game for players of all levels.
