Hi All Stouffville Pickleball Players

We have 90 members so far this year. Playing Skinny Singles is more fun than I thought, but I can only play 15 minutes then I have to take a break.
If you are planning to play with the Stouffville Pickleball Players you must do the following.
Complete a application form and send it with the registration fee. Fill out and pay for a membership with Pickleball Ontario.
When you get to the courts these are your responsibilities:.
1) Sign in in the “Sign in Book” so we can keep track of the players that attended each day.
2) Set up the net. Preferred that you use gloves and remove them by turning them inside out when discarding them so you will not contaminate anyone else. If you are using your bare hands disinfect them using soap and water or hand sanitizer.
3) Take a “Clean Ball” out of the clean ball bin and play the Skinny Singles play with one other player. When you have finished playing with that player or want to play with another partner put the ball in the “Disinfection Balls” Bin (White Bin). Spray the ball with the “Bleach/Water” solution then drop the ball in “Drying Bin” (Green Bin) to dry. The Bleach/Water solution should be on the ball approx. 5 minutes. See Attached “Disinfecting Table” or Picture below
4) If you are going to play with another players take a “Clean Ball” and repeated step # 3
5) In between games and when you are finished playing wash your hands with soap and water or use the hand sanitizer
6) Stay healthy and try to keep the players around you healthy.
7) The players below have offered to help set up the disinfecting table but if there is not a volunteer available it is your responsibility to set up the table and follow the. If you would like to volunteer please e-mail me.

See you on the courts.
