If you are 65 or older, you may qualify for the Silver Sneakers program which gains you free entry into pickleball sessions. Participating insurance plans include: AARP Supplement, AETNA Medicare, Humana, Kaiser Permanente, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and United Healthcare.

Find Players Over The Winter

You may have seen in your club emails some information about the Playtime Scheduler app. The main purpose of using this website is for players to be able to know who is planning to play, where, when, and the skill level of the players. That way a player can tell, prior to driving to the courts, if there will be others there so as not to make a wasted trip. It also lets you know if others, of similar skill level, will be there.

We encourage our members to register and use the app to let other members know when and where folks are playing. It is especially helpful in making sure we have enough players at our indoor play sessions at Bookcliff Activity Center. If enough of our players use it, it could become a useful tool.

We Did It!

We reached a milestone of 500 members in the Western Slope Pickleball Club. The most we achieved was in 2020 with 381 members. It just shows how fast the sport of pickleball is growing in the Grand Valley. Plus, who can say NO to our amazing, lovable (albeit pushy) membership director, George Gerson!
