PHILIPPINE Pickleball Federation (PPF) will celebrate its sixth anniversary with a “Flashback Party” on Saturday, April 27 from 2 to 5 pm at Emerald Mansion in Ortigas Center, Pasig.

The event will bring together many of the sports “pioneers” who helped develop pickleball in the Philippines and include an industry update, formal award ceremony, parlor games, door prizes, a photo booth and a special flashback video presentation.

Admission to the Flashback Party open to all is P500 and includes Saturday evening Street Pickleball immediately following.

PPF was recently featured in the April issue of Pickleball Magazine, official publication of USA Pickleball and is the world’s only publication for the sport of pickleball, for its popular “Street Pickleball” program, which draws hundreds of new players to the streets of Pasig every weekend.

Although the sport has gained popularity nationwide, the PPF street program remains a player favorite.

From its humble beginnings in 2018, PPF has grown to 88 member clubs with over 4,300 active players. Philippine Olympic Committee is considering PFF’s recognition as the National Sports Association (NSA) for pickleball.

Internationally, PPF is well connected as a founding member of the Global Pickleball Federation, the international governing body for the sport, and one of only a handful of member-countries to achieve esteemed Class-A membership with full voting rights.

“We have worked long and hard to develop pickleball in the Philippines and with others around the world, and are excited to recognize our many ambassadors, supporters and friends at this historic event marking our sixth year”, enthused Mike Johnson, PPF Chairman and co-founder.
