COVID-19 UPDATE -- Challenging Times and Tough Choices for All
Your health and safety are at the heart of everything we do at Pickleball Canada.
Therefore, Pickleball Canada supports all Canadian Federal and Provincial Health Authorities’ recommendations in their efforts to abate the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Among the latest recommendations are those to limit, or suspend entirely, large group gatherings especially those where “seniors”, a designated vulnerable group, are involved.
It is incumbent on us, and all Canadian sport organizations, to exercise caution and comply with the relevant recommendations and applicable laws.
Therefore, unless circumstances change or an event has a prior cancellation, the following will be implemented immediately:
Pickleball Canada Board and the Interprovincial/Territorial Advisory Council
We wish to thank Dr. Pankaj Bodani, a previous Director of Pickleball Saskatchewan, for providing the following guidelines in relation to the COVID-19 virus and the sport of pickleball.
Training / Volunteers
Pickleball Regina has been awarded the Western Canadian Regional Pickleball Tournament to be held July 24- 26 2020.
Quite a few more Scorekeepers and Referees are required for the 2020 tournaments - especially for the Western Canadian Regional tournament. If you are interested in taking training that will be offered in early May, 2020, please contact Karen Rust at email@example.com
Assuming there is sufficient interest, courses will be provided in both Saskatoon and Regina. We are looking for sponsors for the event. If you have names of people or businesses we may approach, we would appreciate hearing from you. Please contact Reg Lakness (firstname.lastname@example.org).
