USA Pickleball's CEO to Step Down

by The Dink Media Team on

USA Pickleball, the National Governing Body for the sport, announces that Stu Upson will step down as Chief Executive Officer after a transition period.

Upson assumed the role of USA Pickleball’s first CEO in December 2020.

“I have greatly enjoyed my time at USA Pickleball and am proud of the accomplishments the organization has made over the past two years,” Upson says.

“It has been a privilege to work with the entire USA Pickleball team and the Board.”

“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Stu for the growth that USA Pickleball has made under his leadership,” Robert Quicksilver, Chairman of the USA Pickleball Board of Directors says.

“His many contributions have helped position the organization for continued success in the coming years.”

A press release did not reveal when the transition would take place or if someone is in line to replace Upson.
