WBC welcomes players of all skills levels to play pickleball in a friendly recreational environment.
Pickleball has been played at the WBC for over 10 years. The badminton nets are lowered and the courts are ready for pickleball, the fastest growing sport in Ontario.
Approximately 30 percent of our annual members play Pickleball, at several scheduled time slots throughout the week. Please see the event schedule on this web site. All pickleball time slots are for recreational open play.
WBC welcomes drop-in players to play pickleball at the club.
First-time drop-in members must pay a court fee, register for a Day membership, must sign an ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND WAIVER OF CLAIMS AND LIABILITY AGREEMENT and understand and accept the conditions required for any and all participation at the Woodstock Badminton Club and / or its activities. By signing, they also acknowledge and agree to the WBC Fun and Fair Play Practice. As of September 22, 2021 all players must have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days.
On subsequent visits, the player needs only to pay his court fee and then note the current date to the back of his registration form that is in the day members book that can be found on the back of the kitchen door. A day membership permits the player access to the club courts for the day.
On all visits, the player should do a self screening to ensure they do not have any symptoms of COVID-19. The self screening questions are on the website.
Court Fees for Drop-In Players
The 2021/2022 court fees for Pickleball is $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for youth 17 and under.
Players will need a pickleball paddle and an indoor pickleball. (Yes there are special balls for outside and inside play). The club has a few paddles for new players who would like to try out the sport. Regular players are expected to bring their own paddle and balls.
The club sells Pickleballs.
