In a statement released from PickUp USA’s corporate office in Los Angeles, PickUp USA’s Founder and President, Jordan Meinster, talked about his connection to the San Diego market.  “All of the markets we’re in are amazing, but San Diego has a special place in my heart,” says Meinster.  “I lived in Lemon Grove for years, and would play pickup ball at local gyms and parks in the area almost every day.  Those times were a huge part of the inspiration for starting PickUp USA.  Mike and Michelle are perfect partners for us, and I know the players in San Diego are going to love what we offer.”

San Diego is the eighth-largest city in the United States and second-largest in California.  It is known for its mild year-round climate, extensive beaches, long association with the United States Navy, and recent emergence as a healthcare and biotechnology development center.  San Diego County also has a massive population of basketball players that PickUp USA estimates totals over 300,000 youth and adults.
