We are a group of Meafordites who have fallen in love with the game of pickleball. We are glad to serve you in providing a fun, friendly, recreational and social club. Let us introduce you to the Team.
Contact any of the Executive – please use our contact page and we will re-direct you accordingly. Contact Us!
Brian has been playing now for over 7 years and loves the game. He came to Meaford in 2017 and found no active pickleball being played in an organized fashion. He volunteered to begin something in 2018 and then developed a team to help found the Meaford Pickleball Club in September 2019. There was a great response by people in the community and the future of pickleball in Meaford only looks bright.
Susan and her husband Larry joined the Club and have jumped right into learning the game and helping to coordinate games as Court Hosts. Susan has joined the Executive as our Vice Chair and is a willing and delightful person – and as you can see – fashionably attired for a game of pickleball.
(We’re still working on keeping Larry out the kitchen however. haha! )
Treasurer & Leaf Blower
This man is multi-talented handling both our accounts and a lime green leaf blower to keep the courts clean and ready for the next game. Thanks to Cindy and Brian too for organizing pick up games at both the Base and the Tennis Courts.
Speaking of the treasury, this is a good place to say a word of thanks to the Meaford Town Council for their generous support of our Club. In 2019, as a part of the Community Grant Program, they committed to donating $500 for 4 consecutive years. Thanks very much and we’lll do our level best to grow the sport in our fine municipality.
Donna was one of the first 6 people to show up in 2018 to learn pickleball on the first session in 2018. She is an excellent secretary producing minutes from our executive meetings in record time. She also came up with the name of our first Club Tournament in February 2020, “The Snowflake Invitational.” Here she is with her “picklleball” man – Thirby Lowe.
Membership Coordinator: Director at Large
Susan # 2 – joined our Executive in September 2020 and is an experienced volunteer who has taken up the task of managing the membership file. It didn’t take long for her to buy a paddle and pack it in her suitcase which she took to the warmer climate of the south last winter. It is likely you will meet her early on in your time with the Club.
