Sunshine Coast Pickleball Association

Welcome to the registration page for the Sunshine Coast Pickleball Association (SCPA)

With pickleball play on the Coast so disrupted this year by Covid conditions, the SCPA has decided to waive its club membership fee until January 1, 2022. 

However we do require our members to also belong to Pickleball BC (PBC) and Pickleball Canada (PCO). Membership in these two organizations provides numerous benefits to individual members (injury insurance from PCO, newsletters, advocacy) as well as to the SCPA (affiliate standing). Membership in PBC and PCO is on a calendar year basis and costs $10 for PCO and $2.50 for PBC (plus a small service charge). To align with PBC and PCO, the SCPA is also adopting the calendar year (Jan 1 - Dec 31) for its membership cycle.


Please note that in the registration form below the first question asks you if you are new to Pickleball Canada or if you are renewing your Pickleball Canada membership. 

  • New SCPA members select the new option. 
  • All current (and recent past) members of the SCPA are also members of Pickleball Canada so select the renewing option. You must use the provided "lookup" option to get your PCO number. As part of that lookup you will be asked for your year of birth which hopefully will be correctly recorded in the PCO database. Some birthdates are missing in the PCO database but the system should let you in and you will then have a chance to enter your correct birthdate during the registration renewal process.


Welcome to Pickleball BC.
