About "Around the Post Pickleball"
The plans for ATPP have been long in the making. As early as 2017 after playing pickleball for only a year, Scott Green the company’s founder saw the potential and looked seriously into finding commercial property to open the first indoor facility on Long Island. Although that dream didn’t come true, he knew the sport was expanding and began playing in tournaments in the tri-state New York area and like most of us who play the game, spread the word about this sport with the funny name.
Although not under the ATPP banner, we were able to take part in the organization of a successful event this past September in Hampton Bays, Long Island. The tournament drew 110 players to sunny Red Creek Park for the two-day event. It was originally envisioned to be a small local tournament, but it turned out to be anything but that. Through word of mouth and the enthusiasm of the pickleball community, we attracted not only local players, but players from New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. Throughout the course of the event, we were receiving frequent feedback from players about how well-organized the tournament was and when we were running the next one.
Around the Post Pickleball is looking forward to growing with the sport and host well-organized, enjoyable events for pickleball enthusiasts, their friends, and families. We are currently planning to have four tournaments in Hampton Bays this summer and early fall and a special event in Albany New York in January of 2023 during MLK weekend in the beautiful new Albany Capital Center.
We are also giving clinics with certified instructors weekly in Hampton Bays. (Scott has 2 different certifications to teach) We certainly see the growth of this market to expand greatly and we are looking at destination all-inclusive clinics with top players from around the world at fabulous locations. We also hope to be branching out to become a national teaching network that can teach the game to beginners with a unified method of instruction.
Scott’s background doing corporate events for Major League Baseball and his own successful baseball event business “Play at the Plate” puts him in the unique position of event management. With his expertise your company could be holding events for your staff or clients.
We have a lot to offer the pickleball enthusiast and we hope you’ll join us at a tournament, a clinic or corporate event.
