Pickleball Alberta (PA) and affiliated clubs plan to start using a new membership system in 2021. Until then, the current PA and club membership systems will remain in place. This page has two sections: Resource information for the Pickleball Canada National System not yet implemented, and Instructions to members on how to join or renew your membership BEFORE the new membership system is implemented.
Section 1 – Resource information for the upcoming Pickleball Canada National System (PCNS)
PA has been working with Pickleball Canada and other provincial sports organizations since 2018 to develop an integrated system that will handle membership joins and renews for all levels – individual, club, province and national. The key driver to develop a national system is to dramatically reduce the amount of volunteer time spent in processing memberships and to improve the quality of membership information. An effective national system is an important requirement for Pickleball Canada to become a recognized National Sports Organization. To access more information and resources for your club, click here.
Section 2 – How to Join or Renew Your Pickleball membership BEFORE the new National System is implemented.
When you join an affiliated Club you are automatically a member of Pickleball Alberta and Pickleball Canada. The central on-line membership system also allows for individuals to belong to more than one club.
Individuals who are not members of a club in Alberta can use the on-line membership system to join Pickleball Alberta and Pickleball Canada.
Individuals wanting to join a club should contact the club directly (see club listing below) or Pickleball Alberta. Clubs are the primary point of contact for the majority of pickleball players in Alberta and are able to help with the membership application process.
Active Members can click here to access the Pickleball in Alberta membership system to:
- keep their profiles current,
- join other clubs in Alberta,
- renew their memberships during the annual renewal period, and
- access other system features as they are developed (stay tuned!).

Please read this if you want to join more than one club!
If you have recently renewed with Pickleball Alberta for 2021 through the Pickleball Alberta membership system OR if you have recently joined another Alberta club through a separate membership system, AND now wish to join another Alberta club, it is important that you follow the steps below to avoid double payment of your Pickleball Alberta (PA) and Pickleball Canada (PCO) 2021 fees as refunds will not be available:
- If the second club you wish to join is available through the PA Store pay for the club fees there. https://pickleballalberta.wildapricot.org/Club-Membership-Store
- If the second club you wish to join is the Edmonton Pickleball Club or Grande Prairie Pickleball Club, please wait three to five weeks for your first purchase to be reflected in this Pickleball Canada system.
