PIPA was founded in 2000 as a hobby-project where information was collected about everything related to the pigeon sport. Later on PIPA became a term in the world wide pigeon sport. It is the abbreviation of Pigeon Paradise, the original name of the site. Because PIPA is easier to use and pronounce, everybody uses PIPA when they talk about Pigeon Paradise. Nowadays PIPA is a professional company, under the name PIPA Holding.
PIPA 's mission is
First: to provide pigeon fanciers with up to date, correct and fast world wide pigeon news and to bring together the world wide community of pigeon racers.
