We are a “bottom-up” organization, meaning the venues we have coordinated with the help of the city and county are headed up by the venue coordinators elected from the venue players. All pickleball players (unless they opt out) are considered to be members of the club with the venue coordinators serving as the Managing Council. Members who fill out an update form and waiver are considered voting members. The Managing Council elects an Executive Team which can be removed by the council at any time.
