Welcome to our returning players and to those who are joining us for the first time. As before, we will have both junior and adult play.
We begin our sixth season of operation on October 11, 2023 and continue play until May 11, 2024. Within that 30-week timeframe there will be 28 weeks of play, four-to-six game days each week, both weekdays and weekends. So there will be lots of opportunities to play as often as you want!
On most days, there will be both rated and open play available, for those competitively-minded or not.
For those new to the game there will be Learn to Play Sessions for both Juniors and Adults.
On weekdays, games will be held at the Heritage Park Pavilion in Stony Plain, with weekend games at Greystone School in Spruce Grove.
YHW is the operating entity of Yellowhead Pickleball Club, an Alberta-incorporated non-profit society and an affiliated club member of Alberta Pickleball and Pickleball Canada Organizations. The primary purpose of YHW is to develop more playing opportunities for local and regional players of all levels. Playing opportunities are most limited during our long winter and in the fall/spring shoulder seasons.
One solution to this four years ago was partnering with the Town of Stony Plain in utilizing the town's Heritage Park Pavilion to dramatically increase the amount of weekday and evening playing opportunities. With seven dedicated courts, there is a plethora of opportunities now available to play days and evenings, Monday through Thursday. We also have the privilege to play on Saturdays at a school in Spruce Grove.
We have now begun our fifth season and there is lots of room for experienced or beginner players. Get active and enjoy the winter with a really fun and inexpensive activity! Details about learning to play pickleball (if you're a beginner) and the multi-step registration process can be found under the Programs menu item.
We sure hope you can come out and play with us whether you are a seasoned player or interested in becoming a new player in the fastest growing sport in the world!
