About Us/Contacts

Welcome to the Comox Valley Pickleball Association (CVPA)

A group of passionate and dedicated players got together recently to explore how we can improve playing options and advance the sport that we love. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in Canada and we want to “catch the wave” and be prepared. As a step towards developing our sport, the non-profit CVPA was formed.

CVPA will serve the communities of Comox, Courtenay, Cumberland and the surrounding Regional District.

Our mandate is:

To assist and promote the growth of Pickleball as a game for all ages;
To assist with the development and utilization of local Pickleball facilities;
To assist with the improvement of the members level of skill and enjoyment;
To provide similar and related services as determined by the membership.

Our vision is:

To improve outdoor facilities with a dream of having dedicated PB courts.
To create more communication systems and this website will greatly enhance the sharing of information amongst players. As we learn and grow as a group, we will expand the scope of this website.
