These 2024 memberships will go on sale soon (date tbd), and will expire on December 31 2024.

News for You

Membership Sales Suspended

Posted Sept 30 2023: Pickleball Alberta (PA) has introduced a new controversial fee with  little notice to clubs and members.  SAPC encourages members to advise PA of their thoughts regarding this change and the way it has been managed.

SAPC is also considering how this may impact our organization and our coordinated membership management.  When a path forward has been determined by our club, we will resume our membership sales.  Until further notice, we advise members NOT to renew their pickleball memberships on any system.  A path forward will be identified, and membership sales will be resumed, before the expiry of current memberships on December 31, 2023.

Youth Membership

SAPC welcomes youth members 12 years of age or older. See our youth membership web page for more details.

Club Ratings and DUPR

In an April 1 email to all members, Roger Hutlet, SAPC's Communications Director, announced the lifting of its freeze on club rating changes, and pointed members to these webpages for further details. All these pages can also be found under our Development menu.

Our board would like to thank our Rating Committee members for considering how the club can and should continue some means of assessing play skills, and how to operationalize and implement the new methods chosen.

As these webpages note:

  • current club ratings are grandfathered (still valid and in effect), and 
  • there are three ways of either getting a new club rating or having that rating advanced. 
One of those ways is to get a DUPR -- a dynamic universal pickeball rating -- by recording games scores in the DUPR app or online at

The club is starting to run DUPR play sessions immediately, as one way to get game scores into the DUPR app and start building your DUPR rating. For club-hosted DUPR sessions, the club will enter the scores for players.

In the initial DUPR sessions, priority will be given to accommodating members who have no rating and members who want a higher rating. By late spring or summer, the club will also offer sessions for those with a club rating who want a DUPR rating or more competitive play, but are not necessarily looking to advance their club rating.

Members can register for DUPR sessions by quickly responding to invitation emails sent to members eligible for that particular session, or by finding a DUPR play session in the Rating Session calendar, opening an event, and registering there.  Read the event description carefully, as these events have some new qualifications -- like having to join DUPR and join SAPC on DUPR.

Remember we're all volunteers here, and this is new territory for us and a lot of other clubs. Our processes and policies will continue to evolve as we learn more. Satisfying as many of your wishes for pickleball play as we can remains "job 1".

Volunteer Opportunities

More Categories in Your Profile

Volunteering for your club is a great way to meet more people, and it is so satisfying to give back -- to contribute to a great organization and help your fellow members.

There are now more volunteer areas identified at the end of your membership profile. Log into your profile and pick your areas of interest. Training is available for all teams and positions.

The next time we need more volunteers in a particular area we will first go to those who have declared an interest via their profile.


All Play and Rated Play

Any member, whether club rated or not, may attend a session designated in our calendars as "All Play" or "2.5"

If play is rated to a specific level, such as 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0, players must be rated at the designated level to play at that session.  If a session is designated with a "+" sign, such as "3.0+" or "3.5+" then attending members must be rated at that level or higher.

For more info on ratings, read our Skill Levels and Ratings page.

Organized Play Types and Times

If you are a new member, you may be wondering how our organized play works.  Well we have several types of organized play. Most play types are described here. Reserved play is described here.

Play times are in one or more of our many calendars. Watch these calendars and our news for season openings, closing and any changes.

Outdoor play generally runs from late April or early May to early October at our Alpine courts.  Here's the calendar for Alpine. 

Court locations are here.
