New To Pickleball?

Come learn to play Pickleball on Sunday nights from 4 until dark at Holua Racquet and Paddle Center. Sponsored by the Big Island Rouge Pickleball Hui, Sunday is our “Newcomers” night! There are plenty of new pickleball players to learn with and best of all, we provide everything you need to get started: balls, loaner paddles and 5 free Sunday night sessions.

Pickleball is designed for all ages and skill levels. It is a lively, active, recreational paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. It’s played both indoors and outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net, and is the fastest growing sport in America! It's really fun, great exercise and a very social sport, plus April is National Pickleball month, so come join us! For more information you can reach out to our very own USA Pickleball Ambassador: Andrew Carrell, who typically hosts Sunday nights, via Facebook, email:, or his mobile: 808-464-5008.

Fundraiser Idea

Most of us use Amazon to buy things. What you may not know is that Amazon has a program called “AmazonSmile”; you shop and buy things the same way, except if you use AmazonSmile, part of the money (0.5%) goes to a charity that you designate. It doesn’t cost you a penny! With thousands of potential AmazonSmile users in the West Region, we could raise significant additional funds without anyone spending any additional money! For each $1 million dollars spent through AmazonSmile, an additional $5000 will be raised. It doesn’t take long for thousands of people to spend $1 million on Amazon. This money goes directly into the West Region Non-profit bank account. This additional money would allow us to provide much needed support to grow Pickleball in various ways in all of the fifteen districts in California and Hawaii! I am including a link here to an Amazon page that explains how to sign up for AmazonSmile.

Please help support USA West Region Pickleball by signing up for AmazonSmile. You will be asked to provide the name of a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. To support West Region Pickleball, the name you will provide is: Usapa West Region Nonprofit Thank you so much for being willing to do this.
