About ECROCK Pickleball Club
Our exciting journey began in 2021 with an idea to start the first organized Pickleball Club in NL with hopes to grow an interest with 50 or so players at Northpoint Sport's. We surpassed that number in 2 weeks, and today we are proud of our club's expansion to welcome over 400 enthusiastic youthful and fun loving members! Our club provides structured Skills & Drills usually the first Wednesday in September after the long week-end up until late May-early June. Your membership for 2024 will expire December 31, 2024 with lots of notice about your renewal well in advance. We take a brief Christmas break and start up again in the New Year. During our down time, Northpoint Sports is still open for court rentals so check them out.
What Can Members Expect?
All ECROCK Members are invited to join us on alternating Wednesday's (based on Play Level Blue or Red) for "FREE Club Day's" from 10-11:30 am at Northpoint Sports Centre (42 O'leary Ave.,St. John's, NL) for structured skills and drills including some recreational play for no cost. These are FREE Drop-In Skills and Drills for "Members Only" and no registration is required. We have alternating Wednesday's to support 2 Club Levels of Play "BLUE PLAY" for Beginners- Intermediate and "RED PLAY" for Advanced Intermediate - Advanced Players" . Keep an eye on our "NEWS" section to the right for this page time to time for any club updates. Each Wednesday you'll be welcomed by representatives of ECROCK executive and our fabulously talented and dedicated Volunteers. You can't miss us, we are proudly sporting an ECROCK RED SHIRT! Make yourself known to us and we'll register your name as an attendee and provide you with a name tag. We'll kickoff at 10:00 am sharp on the court with a welcome and a run down of what we'll cover over our 90 minutes starting with a 5 minute warm-up and some safety reminders. Skills and Drills are delivered by some of our Clubs Certified Pickleball Coaches and our skilled volunteers who are there to help and support you and of course to have FUN!!! Be sure you are wearing proper court shoes with a good grip, we strongly suggest you wear safety googles, bring a thermos of water and dress in layers for the air conditioned facility. Please use the change rooms and do not wear outdoor shoes on the court, leave belongs in the change rooms to avoid bringing bags onto the court. The courtesy rule of thumb is you can observe the current players on the court from the window and "do not enter the gym until they have exited the court".
Note: We make it a practice to advise members by 8:30 am should Club Day get cancelled due to weather as an example. Notification is sent via an ECROCK Club email and a Facebook post.
Throughout the season we offer several "Free Clinic's" to either participate or observe, delivered by Certified Pickleball Coaches, Leonard & Brenda Lye. While these Clinics are again FREE for members, "THEY DO REQUIRE REGISTRATION" . Members will be advised by email in advance when Clinics are scheduled, what will be the area of focus, the targeted skill level and how to register. While these are "FREE", we do ask in appreciation of Leonard's & Brenda's time that everyone bring along a food item to help them support our local Food Banks.
In an effort to expose members to a National Pickleball platform of skills and clinics, we collaborate with Cameron Taylor, Taylored Pickleball Academy, a professional 5.0 national player. Cameron visit's the club annually to offer various levels of Clinics designed to improve their game. When Cam delivers his Clinics at Northpoint Sports, we extend our support by paying for the court fees so members only have to cover the cost of the Clinic they select. Cameron also offers private/group sessions to those interested so his visit is a real big deal!
One of our favorite things to do is organize 3 fun themed 2-Day tournaments annually with door prize draws, food, beverages, gold, silver and bronze games and awards. Each tournament we select a local organization to make a charitable donation to with your generous support topped up by ECROCK Pickleball Club. We are a proud supporter of our community and are happy to give back whenever we can.
