Winter Season 2021-22

2 Courts – 5 days per week

Meaford Community Centre.

Below is a sample of our play schedule which will undoubtedly change throughout the playing season.

New Schedule Effective Nov 1, 2021

Sign-ups happen via Ez-in. Game invites go out one week prior to games.

Please Note: Due to rental fees we encourage members to come to all sessions signed up for to help cover Club expenses and provide a sufficient number of players for games. Please come so as not to disappoint those showing up including our courts hosts.

Should you need to cancel – please do so at least 3 hrs prior to the session start time or even earlier if possible. If you cancel after the 3 hr window you will be charged the court fees if you do not show up. (Sorry to be tough on this matter, better this than having to send out the Pickleball Police to your homes!)

We are pursuing the option of renting the new GBCS in Meaford in early 2022. Stay tuned.

The goal is to offer a variety of experiences. We will be attempting to provide various kinds of playing categories. All sessions and numbers are subject to Covid restrictions at this time.

Categories of play possible:

  • Open Play – everyone is welcome
  • Men’s Only and Women’s Only
  • Intermediate Only – The Club will have a skill assessment tool available to rate players subject to various factors. USAPA/Pickleball Canada ratings are accepted. This provides for play with “like-skilled players”
  • Learn to Play Orientation – it is important for beginners to receive a level of instruction before playing actual games. This will introduce you to the basic rules and fundamentals as well as guide you in getting set up with the Ezin sign up system.
  • Singles – if interest, there could be limited slots available for singles.
  • Mixed Doubles Intermediate
  • RATINGS SCALE: USAPA rating profile is quite descriptive and can be found here.

Learn to Play Sessions: Each week we will offer introductory sessions for new players. We encourage all new players to join these sessions to learn the basics before playing in regularly scheduled games. Please sign up for a Learn to Play session at meafordpb@gmail.com.

Capacity Projections:  Based on provincial guidelines.  Schedule may change – be sure to check back for updated information.

Community Centre Details: Please arrive just before you game time slot. Please wear a mask while entering and between games. Enter through the main door and change into your indoor shoes in the hall way.

All players will have to show proof of vaccinations prior to being allowed to play.

The Harbour Pavilion and Pad as well as the Community Centre may be booked on certain dates by other groups for events which may restrict our pickleball schedule. We will highlight specific dates when they are known and set.

Love our new Library?

MPC has provided loaner paddles and balls to the Meaford Library to add to the collection! We hope this will encourage people who do not have paddles or may not have tried the game to do so at the Tennis Courts. This is a great way for you to introduce others to the game as well – book out some paddles and head on down to the Tennis Courts on Eliza St. just past the old High School.

Here is an outline of how the game is played as an FYI!
