Pickleball Canada Selects Regina to host 2023 National Championship

Pickleball Canada is pleased to announce Regina, Saskatchewan as the city selected to host the 2023 Pickleball Canada National Championship (the Nationals). The event will be held from August 23 – 27, 2023. In 2022, Regina successfully hosted the Pickleball Canada Western Regional Championship.

Over the course of five days, more than 1,000 players from across Canada are expected to compete for the coveted title of Canada’s best pickleball athletes in age categories ranging from 16 to 75. Competition categories include men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. As a Pickleball Canada sanctioned tournament, current international rules will be in effect.

“Pickleball Regina has earned a reputation as an enthusiastic, capable and welcoming host of competitions both large and small” said Deanna Christie, Vice President Sport for Pickleball Canada. “The club set a high bar by hosting the Western Regional Pickleball Championships, held in July, and we have no doubt that Regina will be able to deliver a successful Nationals”.

Randy Dove, the Chair of the Pickleball Regina Organizing Committee, said, “Pickleball Regina is excited to host the 2023 Pickleball Canada National Championship in August 2023. We have the skills, motivation, and confidence that we will provide an experience for athletes, volunteers and spectators that will raise the bar for hosting for the future. We look forward to working with Pickleball Canada and Pickleball Saskatchewan to ensure this is an outstanding event for everyone involved.”

Regina has a track record of being a very desirable destination to host world-class regional, national, and international events. The location provides for easy access by highway and air as well as first-rate accommodations and state of the art facilities. The community excels at delivering a welcoming spirit and warm prairie hospitality.

“We very much look forward to working with the Pickleball Regina host club to ensure the tournament is successful and provides a memorable experience for competitors, officials, volunteers, and spectators”, said Pickleball Canada Executive Director, Carla Anderson.

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in North America, and over one million people play pickleball in Canada. That number continues to quickly rise as more are introduced to the sport that is easy to learn, yet a challenge to master.

Pickleball Canada Celebrates 40,000 Members

Pickleball Canada (PCO) has reached a major milestone of 40,000 members!

Since this past January, when our membership was at 28,000, we’ve experienced a 43% increase to reach this 40,000-member milestone.

This could not have been achieved without the tireless efforts of present and past volunteers, such as Pickleball Canada presidents, board members, officials, and coaches who have all played key roles in developing the sport in Canada.

Karen Rust, President of Pickleball Canada said, “we would like to thank all those who have played a part in this growth.  We are excited for the future of Pickleball Canada and working with other stakeholders to support the continued growth of pickleball in Canada”.

From the establishment of Pickleball Canada in 2011, many individuals have supported the organization in the role of President. To highlight the leaders from over the years, below are the Pickleball Canada Presidents in order of our incorporation to the present:

  • Bill Canning, Red Deer, Alberta
  • Colin Caldwell, Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia
  • Dave Shepherd, Abbotsford, British Columbia
  • Shirley Shepherd, Abbotsford, British Columbia
  • Marg Ouimet, Sturgeon County, Alberta
  • Val Vollmin, Red Deer, Alberta
  • Doug Thomson, Edmonton, Alberta
  • Richard Chambers, Vernon, British Columbia
  • Jim Parrott, Oshawa, Ontario
  • Kirk Jensen, Edmonton, Alberta
  • Karen Rust, Regina, Saskatchewan

Pickleball Canada would also like to thank our Affiliated Provincial/Territorial Pickleball Associations (PTSOs) who are crucial in the development of the game, as well as our Affiliated Clubs for their ongoing efforts to bring pickleball to more and more Canadian communities.

And of course, we would like to thank each of our members for your participation in pickleball and for your trust in PCO and your PTSOs to provide the best quality pickleball possible. We are committed to growing the game safely, with our members at the centre of all we do.

We appreciate the time and commitment of all volunteers who have contributed to the advancement of pickleball for all, for life.

A Review of National Pickleball Day 2022

Saturday, August 13, marked National Pickleball Day 2022 in Canada. The second Saturday of August each year is designated National Pickleball Day, an opportunity for the pickleball community to celebrate the sport that brings us together, also serving as an excellent recruitment opportunity for clubs across the country.

This year, National Pickleball Day was truly a national event, with players young, old, beginner, and advanced coming together to spend a day of fun on the courts. Pickleball Canada received submissions from members in eight provinces sharing their stories, pictures, and what pickleball means to them.

A few highlights of the stories received include:

  • Fredericton, New Brunswick – The Fredericton Pickleball Club celebrated National Pickleball Day with 5 hours of outdoor fun league play in beautiful weather.
  • Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec – The Vaudreuil-Dorion Pickleball Club hosted a successful initiation event with 32 new players registered. The club used four courts to teach new players the game, while on another four courts members demonstrated the sport and paired up with newly initiated players.
  • Grand Bend, Ontario – One and a half years ago, Dave Tomlinson’s group started with 6 players outside on a seldom used municipal basketball court. On National Pickleball Day, 31 attending players spent the day on that same court, now 3 pickleball courts, that had a $20,000 facelift. The group continues to lobby for more courts, demonstrating the increasing demand for pickleball in their community.
  • Winnipeg, Manitoba – Jeffrey Xie founded the LF South Winnipeg Pickleball Club just one week before National Pickleball Day and celebrated by teaching a group of beginner players the game of pickleball. Jeffrey is passionate about bringing pickleball to newcomers to Canada and demonstrating how sport can help immigrants build new connections and adapt to life in Canada.
  • Cortes Island, British Columbia – Don Hall and his group of dedicated pickleball players celebrated the day playing pickleball on their small, rural island off the coast of British Columbia.

As pickleball continues to see rapid growth throughout the country, Pickleball Canada continues to work to develop key programs and policies needed to advance the sport for all, for life.

Mark Saturday, August 12, 2023, on your calendars as National Pickleball Day 2023! We cannot wait to see the growth and development of pickleball from this year to next.

If you have additional stories from National Pickleball Day 2022 that you would like to share with us, please send it to Kaitlyn Green, Project Coordinator at Kaitlyn.green@pickleballcanada.org.

Why Become a Referee?

Garand Jones, Director of Officiating, Pickleball Alberta

Officiating is an important component of pickleball and as the sport grows rapidly across Canada, we need more and more referees to officiate at tournaments all over the country. Referees ensure consistent application of the rules of pickleball and enhance the tournament experience for the players.

Refereeing is a great way to spread your love for pickleball, become an expert in the rules of the game, give back to your pickleball community, and travel to new destinations!

Officiating may be right for you if…

  • You love pickleball (especially watching it)
  • You have an admiration for fair play and the rules
  • You want to give back to your pickleball community
  • You want to meet new people
  • You are looking for a new challenge 
  • You are looking for opportunities to participate in local, provincial, regional, and national competitions

For more information, including the steps to become a referee, head to the Officiating page on the Pickleball Canada website.

Announcement to Pickleball National Organizations Worldwide

BREAKING NEWS!

We are very pleased to inform you that the Unify Pickleball Task Force (UPTF) and the World Pickleball Federation (WPF) have completed a signed letter of intent (LOI) with the goal of working towards an agreement. With the LOI now signed, the following steps are now in process:

  • An Engagement Team has been established, composed of 3 WPF delegates and 3 UPTF delegates chaired by an independent facilitator.
  • The purpose of this Engagement Team is to guide and facilitate the transition to a unified international federation for pickleball that complies with the Basic Universal Principles of Good Governance of the Olympics, Paralympics and the general world Sports Movement.
  • The Engagement Team will discuss and formulate proposals including critical aspects of the transition such as Name, Branding, Country Membership Criteria, Invitation to Non-member Countries to join, basis of voting at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), etc.

INVITATION TO FOLLOW OUR ACTION

As you are aware from our previous communications, the purpose of the UPTF is to guide and facilitate the establishment of an international governing body for pickleball that complies with the Basic Universal Principles of Good Governance of the Olympics, Paralympics and the general world Sports Movement.

While much work remains, we are delighted with the progress made thus far as a result of our communications with WPF.

  • The WPF has positively responded to our initial request and already agreed with several proposed bylaw changes.
  • The Engagement Team process has been agreed as the vehicle to facilitate the transition.

We are confident that the outcome from the Engagement Team process will be an entity ready to become the international federation for pickleball and fully compliant with international sporting norms.

We therefore invite your organisation to engage with either ourselves (UPTF) or the WPF directly in order to obtain all the necessary information to enable you to plan your course of action regarding joining the new entity.

Respectfully
The Unify Pickleball Task Force (*)

2022 Pickleball Canada National Championship

Ottawa, ON

The 10th Pickleball Canada National Championship, held in Kingston, Ontario, wrapped up on Sunday, June 26th, with 954 athletes competing in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles.  Categories included Open, Skill and Age-based events. 

Pickleball Canada President, Karen Rust, who also officiated during the event, said “the Kingston Pickleball Club and volunteers from across Canada are to be congratulated for providing this excellent Championship event.  The level of competition, and camaraderie has been a delight to witness, with many special memories and new friendships made.”

From June 22-26, 2022, the Kingston Pickleball Club, in partnership with Pickleball Canada, hosted the event between the INVISTA Centre and their newly created indoor courts at the Kingston Pickleball Club.  “I was extremely impressed by the way the Nationals were run this year, given the record number of participants, and the multiple venues”, said Andrea Blackwell, President of the Kingston Pickleball Club.  Ms. Blackwell continued saying that “immense credit must be given to the organizers, volunteers, referees, runners, without whom a tournament of this size would not have been impossible”.

Competitors age ranged from 15 to 84 with the majority in the 55 – 69 age group.  However, the trend for more younger players taking up the sport of pickleball was evident with the highest skill level, Open event winners all being in their 20’s and 30’s.

Competitors travelled to Kingston from all across Canada hoping to be crowned Canadian champions. Between the two host venues, 35 courts were used to hold a total of 2,445 matches. 

Pickleball Canada would like to thank the Kingston Pickleball Club and the many volunteers that took part in ensuring that the 2022 National Championship was the success it was.
