Brian Bell

Past President

Brian, the founder of MPC has recently relocated to Port Elgin but will still be making guest appearances as a coach. Thanks to Brian’s dedication to the sport, there is pickleball in Meaford today.

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.

Lee willingly agreed to participate in the Executive Team in 2021 to assist making members feel welcome and served by our Club.
