SAPC Guest Policy
Pickleball players who are visiting the Shuswap may drop-in to a Salmon Arm Pickleball Club organized play session. If there is space available we will WELCOME you in. If the courts are full; or your SKILL Level isn’t viable for the group play PLEASE come back to another session!
All guests must SIGN A WAIVER FORM before playing in organized club games. There may be some sessions, perhaps a multi-week Lesson, which will not be suitable for drop-in guests. The session description on Sign-up Genius will typically specify if guests are not permitted. Click the above WELCOME picture for the WAIVER FORM
Prior to attending, guests can ‘view’ the SAPC Sign-up Genius to determine if space “might” be available, however, guests do not have the option of booking on Sign-up Genius. Sign-up Genius shows the number of spaces available. Pre-booking on Sign-up Genius is a member-only privilege.
All guests need to check in with the session hosts to confirm their invitation, their skill level, AND sign a liability waiver. The club will honour a maximum of two ‘free drop-in visits’ only. AFTER that we ask that you JOIN the club. Membership fees are very fair and reasonable; UNLESS you have been invited by a member to play in our OPEN PLAY sessions. If you are attending an OPEN PLAY session with a Member in good-standing, you are not limited to only two visits.
SPECIAL GUEST: If you are invited by a current / in-good-standing Salmon Arm Pickleball Club member to join in on organized group Round Robin games, that club-member must ensure that you understand the rules and etiquette of the game; and, that your game is ready for the SKILL Level that they are brining you to. The club-member can use Sign-up Genius 2 days in advance to register up to 2 guests maximum in an organized group RR. The same guest should not be registered by more than one member per season. The Special Guest is only permitted two ‘free visits’. After that we ask…..you get the picture!
SAPC members are not permitted to invite a guest who has been refused SAPC membership or a member whose SAPC membership is suspended. It is the SAPC member’s responsibility to screen players for the experience and skill prerequisites before extending an invitation.
