EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
We are asking everyone to fill in the attached Emergency information

For your privacy and protection, we are requesting you keep the form in your own bag.
In case of an emergency we would know who to contact.

Just so you know, there is an automatic defibrillator in the hallway on your way to the gym at both NSSRC and Tay Shores Public School.

Also, we are updating our MAP waiver form.
Please sign one next time you play with us.
People change their address, phone number etc. and not always let us know.
 

SUMMER PLAYING TIME


 We are playing at NSSRC (the Rec. Centre) in airconditioned comfort.
Every Sunday night from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.
No charge with membership.
Non-member drop-in players are welcome at a $3.00 fee.
 

PILOT INITIATIVE FOR OUR CLUB MEMBERS ONLY:

We are outgrowing our facilities and in order to manage large crowds at NSSRC.
It was decided to look after our members first and provide them with play time without a lengthy wait for a free court.

Our members may now also play, at no extra charge, every Wednesday night from 7:00 to 9:00 PM (June, July and August).
No drop-ins on Wednesdays at NSSRC, non-members will be turned away.

TIFFIN PARK MANTA PICKLEBALL CLINIC
Thursday, June 21, 2018

Thanks to Dean Bezanson (Competitive Edge Sports in Elmvale) for organizing this event.  Numerous people told me they really liked it.

 

WHAT DID I LEARN IN THE LAST MONTH?

 Serves shall not be made until the receiver is ready and the score has been called. Serving before the score is called shall result in a fault, and loss of serve.
This rule is adhered to in official tournament play, but not a bad idea for us to get used to as well. Comments anyone?
 



Come play with us, we will pickle you!
