    Your membership in the Surrey Pickleball Club includes membership in Pickleball Canada. If you are planning to join the club or renew your club membership you should do so prior to April 1, 2021, before the Pickleball Canada membership fee increase takes effect.

    Several players in Surrey have expressed confusion whether there is a "same-household" exception to City's "singles-only" playing guidelines.  By way of the email below (sent on February 1), the City is confirming that their guidelines are singles-only, with no exceptions.  The link to their website can be found here.

    After a very long period of being worked on by Metro Vancouver, the reservoir top where the upcoming dedicated pickleball courts (12) are planned, is now in the hands of the City of Surrey. We had the opportunity to visit the site close up this morning. Here is the plan for what is going in. See our Facebook page for a video of what it looks like today. Still a long way to go, but all of the bases for the nets and the fencing are in place. With any luck, we should be able to play on the new courts late in our 2021 season.

    We previously mentioned that 2021 will bring over 100 new rule changes. Three of the ones that you might find interesting include:

    1. No more lets. A serve that hits the tape and lands in the correct service box is now live and must be played. 
    2. Drop serves allowed. Serves may be hit after the ball bounces and with no restrictions on the nature of the swing.
    3. Asking about positions. Serving teams can now ask both whether they are the correct server and in correct position.  

    Check out all of the changes (81 pages of them!) here

    Good afternoon,

    I’m reaching out to our active Pickleball and Tennis contacts across the City, to confirm changes that are now in place Province Wide with the revised Provincial Health Order.  Please share this information within your clubs (formal or informal), fellow players and any other active tennis and pickleball players that you know.

    Effective as of December 4th, the PHO placed new restrictions on adult indoor and outdoor team sports, to limit the amount of physical interactions to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. 

    • All team sports for people over 19 years of age are now suspended – this includes doubles play in pickleball and tennis (both for organized and casual play)
    • ONLY singles play can occur for tennis and pickleball
    • viaSport has increased physical distancing requirement for all individuals to 3m

    Tennis BC and Pickleball BC have recently updated their Return to Play plans to meet the PHO, and are linked for your reference.

    Our Bylaws team and Park Ambassadors will continue to be an active presence across our many parks to talk with park users and help ensure safe sport is taking place, in line with the PHO’s requirements.  If you see any unsafe sport use taking place, please call our Bylaws Services number at 604-591-4370.

    Thank you,

    CITY OF SURREY, PARK OPERATIONS, OUTDOOR COMMUNITY SPORTS & FACILITIES

    While we've been fortunate over the past few weeks to have some good fall weather, enabling us to continue outdoor play, the recent public health order is putting a stop to all outdoor doubles play - all indoor play ceased several weeks ago.

    Here is the notice from Pickleball BC.

    Stay safe and stay well.

    July 9-11, 2021 - Mid Summer Slam (club members and public)

    September 3-5, 2021 - Grip & Rip (club members and public)

    More details coming including information about booking dates (early booking for club members)

    P.S. Is anyone interested in buying a tournament t-shirt?

    Did you know that Pickleball BC/Pickleball Canada has an officiating program? If you are a Pickleball Canada member, after logging in, you can find the information here.

    Under "Resources" there is a self-administered rules quiz to test your knowledge of the rules. Take it. It is quite eye opening.

    Finally, if you're interested in watching  videos of the most recent Pickleball BC introductory refereeing tutorial (November 2020), you can find them on YouTube here.

    P.S. There were a bunch of rule changes for 2020. Are you aware of them? In early 2021 expect to hear about 100 more rules changes!
