USAPA Ambassador from Wesley Chapel

Don Bass,
Ambassador, Wesley Chapel, Fl

Our very own Meadow Pointe Player, was recently appointed as the USAPA Ambassador for Wesley Chapel, Fl.   The following appears on the USAPA Atlantic South Region Ambassador Profile page................  He joins more than 50 other ambassador who represent the State of Florida.

Don was born in Brooklyn, New York and af  ter living most of his life in Carmel, New York, was transferred to the Tampa Bay area in 1990 by AT&T along with his wife Linda. He is a graduate of Nova Southeastern University and is now actively engaged in his second career, this time as a Broker Associate selling residential real estate throughout the Tampa Bay area. Don was introduced to Pickleball by our current Regional Ambassador Donna Donald and her husband Rich (ambassador, Florida Heartland) back in the winter of 2007 and fell in love with the game. He continues to help organize a group in Wesley Chapel that plays in the Meadow Pointe (MP) community. He has encouraged new players in the surrounding community and taken part in demonstrations at local schools and neighboring communities helping them get their groups started. He plays 3 nights a week with his group in MP and wishes he had the time to play more. He hopes to take a few of the MP players with him to the upcoming tournament in New Port Richey, FL and then to Temple Terrace, FL to help introuduce pickleball at another new pickleball facility in Tampa Bay.

Congratulations, Don!
