2012 Pickleball Canada in Review

On behalf of Pickleball Canada, we want to thank all our members and supporters who help us promote pickleball in Canada.  We are proud of the accomplishments and we are looking forward to a great 2013.  Let us take a look at what we have accomplished together in 2012:
-  Approximately 80 New Places to Play started up in Canada, some as far away as New Brunswick, PEI and Nova Scotia.
-  We welcomed Garth Matthews, new Provincial Ambassador for P.E.I.
-  We have appointed many new Area Ambassadors in all Canadian provinces.
-  New B.C. Area Ambassadors include Bruce Simpson, Walter Hermann for Vernon, Betty Loyst for Peachland, Alex Gendron in Nanaimo and Wayne King in Comox.
-   We held the first Pickleball Canada National Open Championship on July 7-8, 2012 with 168 players.
-   Pickleball Canada sanctioned the National Tournament in Abbotsford and the Ontario Tournament in 2012.
-  Pickleball Canada implemented the Tournament Point system to award points to winners in sanctioned tournaments.  We have announced the top 18 Pickleball Players who competed in sanctioned tournaments  in Canada .
-  Pickleball Canada implemented the Player Rating system in cooperation with USAPA/IFP so that players can have the same player ratings in the USA and Canada.
Happy New Year !!!  Happy pickling in 2013 !!!
