Parksville Oceanside Pickleball Society

Please note: for the 2021 pickleball season, POPS membership will be limited to Oceanside residents and players who were members in the 2019 season.  Thank you for your understanding. 

Return to Play – June 28, 2021

Finally! POPS outdoor summer pickleball play will begin on June 28, Monday to Saturday, into October, assuming the BC Four Stage Restart Plans continues as planned.

The format of play that will be adopted to begin our season may change several times throughout the season to meet the needs of our members.

POPS was established in summer of 2016, by Elaine and Hugh Bohm, to provide opportunities for pickleball play to members of all abilities and ages. The emphasis on play is to experience a fun social outing, outdoor exercise, improved fitness and skill development. The etiquette for play guide is posted on our web page and it describes the spirit of play that guides each member to ensure the enjoyment of all participants.

An Annual General Meeting will be held later in the summer. This gathering of members will give members an opportunity to provide input into how they would like club play to proceed for the remainder of the summer and into the 2022 season. 

Thank you to our executive who have met regularly throughout the year to make the start of our pickleball season possible.
