The International Federation of Pickleball (IFP) Individual Membership

The IFP is the World Governing Body for the Sport of Pickleball.

The Charter Membership will help fund the IFP Olympic Movement and the goal to move our Sport towards this goal. These contributions will help provide the funding necessary to continue initiatives already underway for this purpose. These efforts have included the development of relationships and contacts with the USA Olympic Committee, the IOC and several other Olympic Sports organizations supporting our efforts.

Much has been said by many folks in the pickleball community about pickleball becoming an Olympic Sport, but until now it has only been talking points. Over the last year the IFP has laid the foundation and is now in need of funding and additional volunteers to move this to the next level.

The opportunity to showcase and promote our sport at future Olympics in Japan, Paris and Los Angeles remains a goal of the IFP. Through the efforts and contributions of many, the IFP Olympic Movement can become a reality. This would be one giant step in expanding the popularity and recognition of the Sport of Pickleball around the world.
