Emerald Valley Pickleball Foundation:
Expanding Opportunities to Play
The Emerald Valley Pickleball Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2021 to support the fundraising needs of the Emerald Valley Pickleball Club. The Foundation raises funds to support the expansion of pickleball facilities and programs to benefit pickleball players throughout the region.
We are currently focused on raising funds for a new state-of-the-art Regional Pickleball Facility at Lane Community College (LCC). The facility will be jointly funded by public and private funds, and the Foundation is lead on raising funds for the facility. We envision a complex with 16-18 outdoor courts (of which 2 will be "championship courts") and 8-10 covered courts. This new complex will greatly expand the opportunities for pickleball play in the region, and it will have enough courts to meet the needs for drop-in play, leagues, clinics, lessons, and tournaments.
