July 21 – Doubles Pickleball

Hello Stouffville Pickleball Players
Doubles Play:
Starting Friday July 24, 2020 we have been given the OK by the Town of Stouffville to start playing doubles Pickleball.
Covid-19
We must continue protect ourselves from Covid-19. Clean balls will be available which you will disinfect when you finish your game. Hand sanitizer and soap and water will be available to help keep your hands clean. If you prefer to wear a mask while playing please do so. If you do not feel comfortable playing doubles request a player to play singles when it is your turn to play. Safety is our first concern. Please remember to sign in when you arrive each day to play.
Special 1/2 season rate:
We are almost half way through the season. This year only we are offering a 1/2 price rate ($10.00) to join the Stouffville Pickleball Players for the remainder of the season. You must still sign up for Pickleball Ontario (Cost $15.00) and complete an application.
Remember all information about time of play and days we play are on the Global Pickleball Network website.
Signing up to play:
Because we are a drop in program we never know how many players are going to be at the court. There are times we will not attend thinking that no one else will be there. For some of us it is a long drive only to find out that there is no one at the courts to play our favourite sport, Pickleball.
We want everyone to use the system to sign up if they are going to the courts. I would like the members to bookmark the website since they would be using it regularly, the web address is: https://www.globalpickleball.network/network/events/viewEvents/3511-stouffville-pickleball-players
We are running a controlled drop-in for Pickleball in Stouffville . For many days this works fine but for others, people travel long distances to find the courts empty or almost empty. To assist with this situation we are asking that all members REGISTER FOR ANY DAY AND TIME THAT THEY ARE PLANNING TO PLAY. This can be done days or hours ahead of attending.
Go to the Stouffville network (Click Link Below) and in the Menu just under the picture of allot of great looking pickleball players click on the event heading. That will take you to a page listing every event available. Pick your first applicable date and click on it. On the event page you will see a box on the right that is titled Event Registration. Click yes then update. If you want to register for other events repeat this process.
We have set a limit for every session of 32 people. As people sign up when you go back to GPN you will be able to see who is coming for each session.
