MEMBERSHIP

Clubs can join Pickleball Alberta on behalf of all their members – it’s easy!

 

The club submits the annual membership fee and information for each of it’s members to Pickleball Alberta. Pickleball Alberta retains a record of all members in Alberta, assigns a Pickleball Canada number for new members then forwards information and payment to Pickleball Canada.  Pickleball Canada emails members directly with their PCO number.

 

Three steps for Clubs:

 

1. Club collects their annual membership fee which includes $10 per member – $5 for Pickleball Alberta plus $5 for Pickleball Canada.

2. Club collects information required from each member by Pickleball Alberta as part of the application and renewal process

3. Club completes the Pickleball Alberta Membership Information form (Excel spreadsheet) and emails to membership@pickleballalberta.org. Payment of fees may be made using Paypal
