December 2020 Survey Results

In December of 2020 all VPA members were surveyed to help us determine future directions for the organization. The results were as follows:

If we successfully lobbied for reserved times for the VPA, which would you be in support of? (see above)

Most Pickleball Associations in BC have an annual Membership fee ranging from $15 to $35. Some of that, $7.50, is sent to cover memberships in Pickleball BC and Pickleball Canada. VPA would do the same. Our Website explains how the money would be used. A great example of a piece of equipment that would be useful is a large professional roller to dry our courts. What would you be willing to pay for your annual Membership? (see above)

If the VPA could reserve some court time would you prefer?
– Designated time spots for same skill-level drop-in play
– All level drop-in play
– Scheduled play using a system such as Playtime Scheduler or Sign up Genius
(see above)

Until we are successful in lobbying the Vancouver Parks Board (VPB) for court time designated for our members would you be willing for the VPA to use our funds to rent courts from the VPB? (see above)

We want to demonstrate to the VPB that we are a very inclusive sport. Hence this question.  When you play, when do you come? (see above)
