Hello Members!

 

Welcome and Congratulations on becoming a member of the Vancouver Pickleball Association(VPA).  It is exciting to see so many members signed up in such a short time.  With your support we will work with the City of Vancouver to provide more places to play this fast growing sport. Together we aim to provide Pickleball playing options for all levels and abilities and will strive to provide dedicated court times for players wanting to improve their skills, participate in leagues, and tournaments.  Moving forward let us continue demonstrating the True Sport Principles below.   

 

Go for It

Rise to the challenge - always strive for excellence. Discover how good you can be.

Play Fair

Play honestly - obey both the letter and spirit of the rules. Winning is only meaningful when competition is fair.

Respect Others

Show respect for everyone involved in creating your sporting experience, both on and off the field. Win with dignity and lose with grace.

Keep it Fun

Find the joy of sport. Keep a positive attitude both on and off the field.

Stay Healthy

Place physical and mental health above all other considerations - avoid unsafe activities. Respect your body and keep in shape.

Include Everyone

Share sport with others. Ensure everyone has a place to play.

Give Back

Find ways to show your appreciation for the community that supports your sport and helps make it possible.

 

I invite you to communicate with us if you have any questions, suggestions or ideas.  Let’s go out and spread the word and create a positive Pickleball community.

And of course we the board members: Catalin Costea(Vice President), Chuck2 Jung(Treasurer), Chuck3 Jung(Membership Coordinator), Judy Shadbolt O’hara(Secretary), Anke Harpe(Member at Large), and Charles Neufeldt(Member at Large) thank you for putting your trust in us to act on your behalf.
