The second Saturday of August has been designated as National Pickleball Day in Canada, a day to celebrate and promote the sport that connects us all. For 2022, National Pickleball Day will take place on Saturday, August 13th.
National Pickleball Day isn’t only for members and affiliated clubs, just like pickleball, it’s for all! This celebration is an excellent vehicle to drive awareness of our sport and introduce the game to new players across the country. Every club can host events such as learn-to-play sessions to expose new players to the game, promoting social inclusion and health benefits, as well as demonstrating how fun and friendly the game truly is.
Pickleball Canada has posted a Toolkit on their website here with details, media suggestions and hashtag #NationalPickleballDay promotions, social media picture frames, and more. One Club that has posted info on their website and organized special events for Saturday is the Vancouver Pickleball Association (info here). Also the Vernon Pickleball Association has organized "Rally in the Valley" as posted above. There are many more clubs involved in this special day, so please send us info about what you are doing across BC!
Include National Pickleball Day on your club event calendar! If you already have programming scheduled for Saturday, August 13th, make sure to spread the word of the special occasion to your members and consider including National Pickleball Day promotion in the planned programming. If you don’t yet have programming planned for National Pickleball Day, consider planning learn-to-play sessions to attract new members in your communities or get your current members together for some fun matches, practices, or skills sessions to celebrate the day.
The possibilities are endless! Find what works best for your club or community and keep the focus on fun and inclusivity. Here are some ideas of events you could organize in your club or community:
