About Owatonna Pickleball Association

Letter From The President

Welcome fellow pickleball enthusiasts!

Much has been accomplished with your support and participation! We are organizing three regional tournaments annually, have four dedicated outdoor courts at Morehouse Park, conduct indoor play on four courts at Christian Family Church and are organized as a 501(c)3.We currently have 80 plus members and I suspect an equal number of active supporters.

 There is much more that can be done to meet our mission to promote the sport of pickleball as a recreational opportunity for people of all ages in our surrounding community. Your Board of Directors has been meeting regularly.Our Tournament Programing, Facilities and Equipment and Public Relations sub committees continue to work in order to enhance the pickleball experience for all of us. Please feel free to review our history, accomplishments, goals and other areas of interest.Please let us know what you think!


Thanks again for your support,



Alan Peterson


Owatonna Pickleball Association

Pickleball is here!

We have taken many strides to make the sport of Pickleball available in Owatonna and our surrounding communities.  It's a family friendly sport that can be played by the young and the old alike.  You may see Grandparents playing with their Grandchildren or children playing with their parents, and all are having a great time.  It's a fun way to stay active.  We embrace all levels of play.  Our outdoor courts are situated on a beautiful setting at Morehouse Park.  If you have never played Pickleball but would like to give it a try, please come and join us, we would love to see you on the courts.
