HERE is the January  Schedule – click on the link — >January 2019

The best place to play pickleball on the Coast.  A great layout, totally fair for people of all ages and abilities.

Except for beginners, when there is a course on, everyone is entitled to play 2 times a week at “Level Play”. In addition, Social Play is also offered so people of all levels of ability can play together in a pleasant atmosphere.

And – it’s only $3 per session.  And – there is equipment and coaching available.  And – we’re awesome.

The SSAC is a fair, friendly and inviting location.

 

Beginner lessons started on Friday January 11th and was sold out with a waiting list.  WE will hopefully offer another 4 week course soon.

There is Beginners play on Sundays 1:30-3 for anyone drop in to learn, practice and play.  Coaching and equipment are available.

Thank you to all of our coaches for volunteering their time to help interested players improve their games. Pickleball Machine sessions are being organized by the coaches to help us keeners improve our skills even more.

Much appreciated!

PICKLEBALL PRESS – Fall 2018

PICKLEBALL PRESS – MAY 2018

Pickleball at the SSAC is inclusive, fair, fun and competitive, with an emphasis on FUN! The Centre is the best venue on the Coast, with well-maintained, air conditioned regulation-sized courts with a new sports floor.

All pickleball players, whether beginners, top-level players or players who simply enjoy being physically active and want to play for fun, are equally important. The Centre provides opportunities for players regardless of age, ability or interests, through level play and social play, and other special sessions; all at an affordable cost.  There is a drop in fee of $3 per session and a 2018 SSAC membership is required.  Membership for the rest of  2018 is now only $12.50 and is available at the Centre weekdays from 9:30 to 1:30.

You are welcome to try pb once (just pay the $3 fee) before joining the SSAC.

Access the auditorium via the back door.  There is parking there too.

There are set times for level play and social play.   Everyone who knows the basics and the rules is welcome to attend Social Play on Friday mornings 7:50am-9:50am, Friday evenings and Sundays from 5-7pm.    There is also a Social Play session on Sundays from 3-5pm for Beginner to Intermediate players.  On Wednesday mornings 7:45 to 9:30, there is Social Play for Intermediate to Advanced players.    Check the schedule to confirm the times.

The remaining times are for level play sessions.

Thanks to Sheryl Warner and all our coaches and coaching assistants for organizing Beginner Pickleball Lessons.  The first round of lessons were a great success and we hope to start another beginner course in October.  In the meantime, feel free to attend a Beginners session on Friday 1:30 to 3pm.  Equipment is available and one of our coaches will be there to help you.

If you are new to the SSAC, but have played before, you can attend Social Play or Beginners but do not drop into another level play session without first discussing your situation with one of our coordinators – Gill or Bert – at ssacpickleball@gmail.com.
