Perhaps no one knows APP better than the players who compete in APP Tour events. Here’s a roundup of thoughts from some of the top APP players on what makes APP great. 

Obviously, APP has grown quite a bit from its early stages, and they're a really well-established entity with great people who work for this company. And I really enjoy being part of the tour. I really enjoy going to different destinations around the country with them, and I really hope that one day we'll be able to go overseas.

Andrei Daescu

All of the events have been sensational … pickleball is a great community to be around. 

Simone Jardin

The APP Tour is super inclusive and it's like one big family. Everybody is so friendly when you come here, everybody wants to come to the APP tour and play.

Shelby Bates

I've played the APP tour since its inception, and every event that I've gone to has been special and unique in its own right.

Rob Nunnery

I feel like it's very lighthearted when we're all here at tournaments. Everyone is super friendly and welcoming, and really, it's just all about getting out there and playing pickleball and having some fun. And I think APP is perfect for that.

Yates Johnson

The one word that comes to mind thinking about APP would be community … Even players, I think we really like to support each other and see each other succeed, with a little bit of competitive aspect in there. Ultimately, it's pickleball, it's fun I think we all just try to enjoy ourselves.

Hunter Johnson

I think they show real commitment and belief in the players that maybe aren't on the front pages of every single high-level tournament. They're not winning the gold medals, but they still see the potential of people like me and the amazing other players that are trying to make their way into the big pro leagues. And I think that's what people like me need — they need that person who says, “I still believe in you. I have faith in you. I can see you … that's what you need to have that level of support to keep fueling that drive for your pickleball dream.

Alli Phillips

Playing in the APP has been absolutely amazing for me … it’s given us players so many new opportunities that we would've never had anywhere else.

Parris Todd

APP is inclusive. I think that's because they really try to do a great job of making all the players, the pro players and the amateurs, feel welcome and they really want to treat everybody though they deserve to be here. 

Susannah Barr

I met my best friends on the APP tour. From my fellow competitors to the staff and everybody who puts hard work into the tour off the courts. It’s super amazing to see a team come together and I'm just very thankful to be a part of that team.
