Newsletter - Spring 2022
(March 5, 2022)
Spring is just around the corner…we’re getting ready! As COVID restrictions are easing, we encourage our members to continue to enjoy playing pickleball safely; and if you have been away from the courts, we look forward to welcoming you back.
As you are aware, a committee representing the Welland Pickleball Club has been in discussions with the City of Welland regarding Club access and use of the pickleball courts at the Empire Sportsplex. The grand opening of the facility is scheduled for mid-May. Negotiations with the City have proven to be difficult and we would like to advise that we are continuing in those negotiations with the goal of meeting our scheduling needs and obtaining the best deal monetarily for our members. As soon as final arrangements have been reached we will advise further.
As most of you know, the WPC was awarded a grant in late 2019 by the City of Welland to purchase an AED (defibrillator) and training. Both were purchased with the AED being stored in the Vault at MP. The training has had to be postponed due to Covid-19. We would now like to go ahead and get the training done. We want to offer all our members a chance to obtain this invaluable lifesaving course for free. There is a limit of 15. If we get a response greater than 15, we will choose those players who are out playing at the MP courts the most as there would be a greater chance of them being at the courts should the AED/CPR training be required. We are hoping to get at least 8 of our members interested in attending. Plans are being made for the training to take place in Niagara Falls before the end of March.
In addition, we note that our group of members have been recognizing birthdays by posting on Team Reach. The social and supportive actions of our members are encouraged and we would like to continue to recognize each and everyone’s special day. If you do not wish to have your birthday posted on Team Reach please let us know and we will refrain from doing so.
Welland Pickleball Club is looking forward to the return of our regular fun events and some new ones. A tentative Event Schedule for 2022 has been posted on our website pickleballcanada.org/club/wellandpickleballclub
Also, many thanks to all those hardy individuals who work to keep the Maple Park court safe and playable in the winter conditions.
Stay safe, and get out there and PLAY!!
WPC Board of Directors.
