OPTION 1: Renewing or Joining a Second Club:

If you are already a member of Pickleball Canada (PCO) and/or Pickleball Ontario (PAO), be sure to enter your membership info so that you do not create a duplicate membership.

If you have already registered with Pickleball Canada and Pickleball Ontario, you will only be paying the GBPC registration.

If you have never joined PCO/PAO, click on the 'I am a new member' aqua coloured button and follow the instructions.

Note: The Grand Bend Pickleball Club is a social organization whose members come together to enjoy each other's company as much as to enjoy the game of Pickleball. It is very common for the club and individual members to take pictures and videos to capture special moments. Some of these pictures and videos are shared on various social media accounts and the club webpage.  If you have an objection to being included in these pictures and/or videos, please inform the board by filling out the photo waiver under the members section of the web page and make sure to let the club hosts at the event know your preference as well.


PLEASE check to see if you are already in the system before you register as a new member.  You may just need to RENEW.

What is the Membership Year?

The membership year for Pickleball Canada and the Provincial and Territorial pickleball associations is from January 1 to December 31. If you register on October 1 or later in the year your membership runs to December 31 of the following year.
