The Vancouver Pickleball Association is moving to a paid membership starting April 1st

Starting on April 1st we are instituting a $5 annual fee for Vancouver Pickleball Association (“VPA”) membership. Registration for Pickleball BC and Pickleball Canada memberships is mandatory and will be done at the same time, with an additional cost of $12.50 on top of the VPA membership fee.  So the total annual cost will be $17.50 plus a small transaction fee for using the Pickleball Canada National System (“PCNS”) for registration. 

There are some opportunities for “discounts” from the full membership fee.  First, if you register before April 1st, the Pickleball Canada plus Pickleball BC fees are just $7.50.  Second, the VPA membership fee is waived for “Youth” (under 19 years of age) and for “Seniors+” (75 years or older). And, of course, if you already have Pickleball BC and Pickleball Canada memberships you won’t be required to pay for them again. (The system will only charge you the VPA membership fee in that case, and will not charge you again for Pickleball BC or Pickleball Canada fees).

A letter has been sent to all of our members explaining this change. You can read that letter here, and we also have a membership fee explainer here.

Once you’ve read all about it, you can register through the Pickleball Canada National System (PCNS) by clicking on the JOIN link at the top of this page, which will redirect you to the PCNS membership registration page.
