CPC becomes an all ages pickleball club

The Calgary Pickleball Club held it’s 2022 Annual General Meeting on Saturday, January 14th.

The members attending voted to open the CPC club membership to all ages and anyone in Canada. This means the Calgary Pickleball Club is no longer restricted to adults 18+ and residents of Alberta. While the club will include members under 18, it will take some time to plan and organize youth programming. Stay tuned!

The Club welcomes Shameer Abdool, Peter Llewellyn, Colin MacDonald and Susan Graham to the Board of Directors. They will join Sue Stevenson Brown, Lyanne Wong, and Lynn Lehr and Vern Atkinson and Sherry Richardson.

The CPC Board would like to thank Sherry Richardson for all her time and work as President in 2022. She led CPC through the largest growth rate in club history. The Board also recognizes the contributions of outgoing directors, Stephen Hanson, Dennis Yasui, Corey Aschenbrenner and Tony Tighe.

Read more about the AGM and the contributions of our outgoing directors on our news page.

Meeting minutes from the 2023 AGM can be found here.

We are looking forward to 2023.
