Congratulations to Andy Olson who recently became a “USAPA Certified Referee”. Andy is the first AAZPC member to have achieved this status and designation. To become a USAPA Certified Referee you must complete many countless hours of volunteer work refereeing at local and regional tournaments. Andy has refereed over 400 sanctioned matches during his training and passed the written testing requirements. He has received the distinguished honor of being invited to referee at the 2019 Margaritaville National Pickleball tournament being held at Indian Wells in Palm Springs, California November 1-10.
