The Nelson Pickleball Club has had a very successful year, finishing 2018 with 63 members. We look forward to another fun-filled, energetic year.
On March 1, the club will sponsor a clinic, to be run by Brooke Siver of Manta Sport. It will be held at Mary Hall Gym, where the club plays regularly throughout the fall and winter months. Most of the spots in the three categories have been filled, but there are a few left. Contact ttimmermans-at-gmail.com if you wish to take part in the Manta Sport clinic. Those of us who have done a clinic with Brooke and Elya speak very highly of the experience.
In January, play is possible several days a week, starting Sunday, January 6th. Check on the Sign-up page for vacant spots. No signup is necessary on rental days, unless stated on the Sign-up page. We will be trying out Hume School's gym at 3:30PM on Friday January 11th, followed by a get-together at Leo's Pizza & Greek Taverna - dinner or drinks or whatever! If successful, it will become a regular Friday event.
The committee wishes all Pickleball aficionados and friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Pickleball-filled New Year.
Doug, Gloria and Tricia
Winter (indoor) play is in Mary Hall Gym in Selkirk College's 10th St. Campus). Summer (outdoor) play is at LVR (Nelson High School) or Lakeside Park courts. Signup for winter play at this link. Nelson Pickleball Club membership is separate from membership in the Nelson Tennis Club, which gives you access to the new outdoor courts at the LVR High School, or you can pay a $5 user fee (honour system box is on the outside of the shed) behind the tennis courts. Click here for the Nelson Pickleball Club CODE OF CONDUCT and MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION FORM. All members, old and new, need to fill out a membership form, which you can bring with you when playing at Mary Hall. CLUB MEMBERSHIP is $30 for 2020-21 (May 1-April 30); it includes membership in PCO (Pickleball Canada), which includes insurance, and PBC (Pickleball BC). Everyone is welcome to play at any time, but playing fees are reduced for members when playing indoors.
