We are approximately midway through our 2017 season and we are thrilled so many have joined the club this year.
We are aware that the increased membership fee was a deterrent for some, however with 150 paid and registered members we are quite possibly the largest pickleball club in the LowerMainland/Fraser Valley.
As a club we have trained and mentored a number of players in the 2.0 – 3.0 levels. More clinics are being planned over the next number of weeks.
New Reduced Membership Rate as of July 15th — $30.00 is the reduced membership rate for new members for the remainder of this season.

Weekly Round Robin Play on Tuesdays
- We have changed the Tuesday weekly play to an Open Session from 9:00 to 12:00 noon.
- This change was made as the sign-ups for Tuesday were extremely low.
- Open Session play means any level can show up and we will be using the WhiteBoard square sign-ups as we do on Saturday mornings.
- In addition, you are encouraged to use Sign-Up Genius to sign up for all weekly play.
- This assist us in tracking player numbers for our club as well as information for the City of Surrey when they request it.
- A Sunday morning Open session has also been added to our schedule and the Sign-Up Genius.
