Arizona Pickleball Players League (APPL) was formed to develop and introduce league pickleball to Arizona.
We believe there are thousands of players that would like to enjoy organized team based competitive pickleball as an alternative or addition to the already established tournament infrastructure.
It is APPL’s objective to bring a standardized team based league format to Arizona and eventually nationally to fill this void.
Looking Forward to 2022
Despite COVID attrition we still had 165 teams participate in APPL involving close to 2000 players. Just prior to the start of the Winter League season we were on track to have over 225 teams and about 2500 players.
We introduced APPL Mixed Doubles in the Casa Grande Region and the East Valley Region in Season 2021 as well. The Mixed Division quickly became as large as the Men’s and Women’s Divisions. We’re looking forward to introducing Mixed Doubles Divisions in our Southern and West Valley Regions in Season 2022.
