Vision – Mission
The vision of the Surrey Pickleball Club is to facilitate the growth of pickleball in the City of Surrey for the enjoyment, health and social engagement of all players by offering organized recreational and competitive play, and to develop designated outdoor pickleball-only courts.
1. Form a Surrey Pickleball Club
a. Promote intergenerational play open to all skill levels.
b. Provide venues for inclusive play combined with dedicated skill level timeslots.
c. Develop pickleball clinics with a structured approach for improvement of play for all skill levels.
d. Create with the City of Surrey a pickleball destination with the ability to host tournaments at Regional, Provincial, National and International levels.
2. Develop Designated Outdoor Pickleball-only courts in collaboration with the City of Surrey:
a. To schedule club and open public court time options for the purposes of:
i. pickleball players knowing when others will be present at the courts to play and when there will be recreational play and when there will be skill level play;
ii. holding skill clinics for beginners to advanced levels;
iii. promoting social networking important to seniors;
iv. promoting intergenerational play at both recreational and skill levels;
v. promoting play in one centralized area of Surrey which would provide a venue for players from all the city’s recreation centres to meet for organized outdoor pickleball.
vi. provide a venue suitable for tournament play.
b. To provide a controlled environment for the game. Pickleball courts are only 880 square feet, less than one-third the size of tennis courts, and therefore play, including the chasing of balls is confined to that area.
c. To eliminate the need for setup and take down of portable nets, provide the ability for the club to establish permanent facilities for paddles, balls, white boards, cleaning equipment and all other tools required for the running of a successful club.
