ABOUT OUR CLUB
Since its inception in 2019 with 35 members, the Winnipeg West Pickleball Club (WWPB) has been passionate about the growth of the sport. Current members continue to introduce others to the game and as a result club membership has increased to 200+. A good part of the attraction is that the club provides a great venue for social interaction.
A number of the members love to support and to train others. We offer “Learn to Play” clinics, and Intermediate clinics. Also, the club is in the process of developing a “Doubles Play Strategy” class for next year.
The club is working very hard to find enough venues to accommodate the increasing interest. In the fall of 2022 our new eight court complex at St. James Memorial Sports Park was completed. This is now our clubs new home for outdoor play. Over the summer of 2023 we expanded our equipment shed, purchased and installed windscreens and some fence top protection for the courts. When winter approaches, the club moves indoors to the Sturgeon Heights Community Centre, The Bruce Oake Recovery Centre and WMEMS Bedson St. , where we currently have space for 150+ people, playing 3 times a week each.
Recognizing the need to accommodate younger and working members, the club is has added Saturday morning indoor time at SHCC and several Evenings at WMEMS.
WWPB is pleased to work together with Pickleball Manitoba and Pickleball Canada to promote the sport and to provide a service to the community. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the continent and WWPB is proud to be a part of that movement.
