ABOUT

Fraser Valley Pickleball provides well-organized, skill rated tournaments in the Lower Mainland area of British Columbia and, at the club level, facilitates the growth of Pickleball in the Fraser Valley by offering organized recreational and competitive play at Jubilee Park, Abbotsford.

 

In 2014 a group of Pickleball players had a vision to provide competitive tournament play for all ages in the Fraser Valley and the BC Lower Mainland which resulted in the formation of Fraser Valley Pickleball (FVP). At that time there weren’t any Pickleball Canada sanctioned events available in the lower mainland, other than the National Championships, which at that time was held in Abbotsford. Four tournaments were organized in the first year which were very popular and well attended. Since then, other organizations have started hosting tournaments in the lower mainland and as a result, FVP is now focused on two major events; Battle of the Paddle, and indoor tournament and Pickle in the Park and outdoor event.

 

These tournaments:

  • Provide skill-rated events from 3.0 - 5.0

  • Offer Doubles, Mixed Doubles and occasionally singles events.

  • Are sanctioned by Pickleball Canada (PCO)

  • Follow International Federation of Pickleball (IFP) rules​

  • Award medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.

 

The FVP club started, informally, in 2015 with its primary objective being to provide organized recreational and competitive outdoor play for Abbotsford and the surrounding communities.   Working alongside the City of Abbotsford these previously underutilized tennis courts are now 8 dedicated pickleball courts for everyone to enjoy.

 

While our focus has been to organize outdoor play for our current membership, it is our intent to introduce pickleball on a more visible level to the general public and grow the sport through our community.  Having this outdoor facility increases public awareness of this fantastic sport, and we are looking forward to continue growing our sport.  We also offer junior clinics; refereeing clinics; and skill-building clinics for our members.

Fraser Valley Pickleball has also adopted Jubilee Park and will be continuing to clean the park regularly as part of our “give back to the community” initiative.
