Fun, Friendly and Fabulous!
The goal of the Meaford Pickleball Club is to organize, enjoy and promote all levels of recreational Pickleball in the Municipality of Meaford.
Welcome to the Meaford Pickleball Club!
We started in 2019 and now have approximately 230 members.
Brian Bell was instrumental in starting PB here in Meaford and although he has relocated to Port Elgin in the fall of 2022, you will still see him around in a coaching role.
About the game of pickleball…
Here is a simple outline of the basic rules of pickleball.
Below are three links for learning the game’s basics. (The link on the left is a USA site so their products for sale, etc., are in USA dollars and we have no relationship with them.) Of course, there are many places to find good information on line. Mark Renneson is an excellent instructor who lives in Collingwood and runs a very successful pickeball coaching business called, Third Shot Sports. CJ Johnson explains the scoring in both in a written format and a video.
The Name: What’s with “Pickleball“?
Ok – here’s the best version and we’re sticking with it. The inventors of the game (fun fact – one of the gentlemen who helped start the game was Mr. Bill Bell – how about that connection, Meaford!) in Bainbridge, Washington in 1965 had a dog named Pickles. She kept snatching up the ball and running off with it. So they started calling the game Pickleball. Tell that to your friends to impress, eh?

Growing the Sport of Pickleball in the Municipality of Meaford was funded in part by Community Foundation Grey Bruce in 2021 for which MPC is grateful and thankful.
Thanks also goes out to ParticiPACTION for their support in the summer of 2021 in our Building Skills and Offering Drills: Promoting Pickleball to Youth and Adults program.
Our team of Ron, Brian, John and Kristin were successful in their application to the Municipality of Meaford’s Community Well-Being Bursary Program for $1000 per year over a 4 year window starting in 2023. Sincere appreciation to Town Council for this generous donation.
