The following is the list of the Directors and Co-Directors of the regional Training/Testing Centers in the United States. We´ve tried to cover the main states that have the largest populations of pickleball players to start. Additionally, we anticipate offering testing at some of the larger tournaments throughout the year for those applicants that do not have a testing center in close proximity to their residence and may be attending one of these tournaments. Please check back to this page frequently as we confirm not only the tournaments we´ll be testing at but adding additional regional training/testing centers on an on-going basis.

Each regional training/testing center will run independently but follow the guidelines of the IPTPA. The Directors of the center will be responsible for scheduling test dates with the coaching candidates and reporting the results to the applicants as well as the IPTPA. Each training/testing center will have the authority to run clinics to serve their local pickleball community under the full support of the IPTPA. Announcements should be made well in advance of the clinic date and reported to the IPTPA so that we can list the dates and information on our website.
