All inductees into the USA Pickleball Hall of Fame and Museum (HOF) will be announced and honored at a USA Pickleball National Championship Tournament and will subsequently be shown on this page. However, in 2021, we will NOT be holding an induction ceremony.
Instead, our HOF will be using a portion of this time to finalize the actual processes for nominating and selecting candidates for induction. We already have comprehensive procedures for these processes, but new ideas are continually brought forward and are being evaluated for inclusion by the HOF Board. Some of the changes that we’re currently considering that differ from other organizations are:
- Using USAP membership to participate in final inductee voting.
- Using a “Senior” committee to consider and select candidates outside the player and contributor categories.
- Using USAP Ambassadors in the confirmation and verification processes.
- Allowing nominations twelve months each year.
- Holding induction ceremonies at different locations if needed.
The HOF Board will spend the balance of its 2021 time on building The Pickleball Historical Museum!
