Drop-in play is now an authorized Pickleball activity for insurance purposes.
Members are personally covered under our Liability and Sport Accident policies for drop-in play at an affiliated or non-affiliated venue. A non-affiliated venue is generally owned privately or publicly and should carry their own insurance as it is not insured under Pickleball Canada policies.
As well, the instructor/coach activity has been clarified such that these activities undertaken by a Pickelball Canada member are also covered. Such activities include Pickleball instruction, teaching, ratings or similar services on a volunteer or paid basis. Non Pickleball Canada members providing such services must provide their own insurance coverage for their activities and should provide proof that such exists.
The insurance renewal process is underway and additional enhancements are being reviewed for their necessity and cost effectiveness.
