See our Explore Joining menu to get your frequently asked questions (FAQs) answered. Once the pandemic ends, you will also be able to sign up for a free beginner's lesson!
Once you've joined our friendly club, you'll be able to log in to this site as a member. The sign-up and payment process is fully automated through this site.
Visitors: We are sorry to have to advise that our visitor's policy is suspended for the duration of our pandemic. To help manage risks of COVID spread, play is for members only at this time. We hope the pandemic can be arrested soon so we can again welcome guests. Meanwhile, why not try us out by joining for a season?
You will first pay $15 and a small processing fee to join Pickleball Canada and Pickleball Alberta, then $20 to join SAPC.
Our annual fee of $20 (plus GST) is very low, but non-refundable. Don't hesitate to join though -- pickleball is lots of fun, great exercise, and a wonderful opportunity to socialize and make new friends.
Once you join as a member, you will have the opportunity, on this site, to buy a card of 20 stickers for $67 ($3.35 each). The cost to play at a drop-in indoor venue is one or two stickers, with amounts depending on the cost of the specific venue rental and the number of players we accommodate at once.
See our FAQ under the Explore Joining menu for more details.

As you may have heard or seen, the Pickleball Canada NationalChampionship (Aug 10-15th) Motorworks Field, Red Deer is a GO!
As of June 10th, Alberta entered Stage 2 of their Open for Summer Plan and with Stage 3 opening anticipated to be in July, this removes most of the restrictions, so it is looking very promising!
We have received many volunteer applications from within Alberta and across Canada of which we appreciate the interest, but we are not quite at our goal of 250 volunteers.
We’re in need of additional line judges, certified referees, experienced photographers, certified Proserve bar or server staff, certified first aiders, individuals with social media/public relations experience, and general tournament help...to help meet our goal of 250 volunteers.
We welcome applications from all pickleball club members, non members and anyone that would love to be part of the biggest Pickleball Event of 2021!
Please visit the Nationals Volunteer site for more information.
Organized Club Play: Planned to Begin
Monday July 5th
We are planning to launch our organized play club schedule as soon as Alpine construction is completed. We hope things go as planned so we can begin July 5th! Thank-you to those who responded for being Captains. Play sessions will be posted on our Outdoor Calendar. We look forward to a wonderful St. Albert summer on the courts!
