After a national wide vote in which thousands of votes were cast, today is the day we announce to Top 10 Nominated Clubs in Canada for Canada's Best Pickleball Club of 2023. This officially ends the nomination phase.
Throughout the summer we will investigate these clubs, and establish final voting criteria to select Canada's Best Pickleball Club of 2023 in September.
Without further ado, we are excited to announce this year's top 10 Nominated Clubs.
These are in order of votes received

So we have 3 clubs from Alberta, 3 from BC, 3 from Ontario, 1 from Newfoundland, 1 from Saskatchewan, and 1 from New Brunswick. That's a pretty nice cross-section of our country. We had nominations from all the other provinces as well, with the exception of PEI.
We elected to include an 11th club because there were only a couple of votes separating White Rock and St. Isadore. There was a larger gap after that.
This truly is a selection of pickleball clubs from coast to coast in Canada.
It is a testament to the popularity of the game across Canada, and these clubs in particular should be congratulated for getting out the vote.

Now that the nomination phase has been completed, between now and the end of August we will be encouraging each of these club's executives to submit more detailed information about your club to us.
For the top 3 clubs, we will write detailed articles about each club and post them on our website.
For the remainder of these 11 clubs, if you can provide us an originally written article about your club we will post them to our website in the order received. Tell us about your club with information about the number of members, when it was formed, any special initiatives you have undergone, as well as special achievements in areas such as tournaments, community relations, fundraisers etc.
If your club is not on the list, but you also have some information you would like to share in terms of the criteria above please let us know, as the vote count alone is a significant but not the only criteria we are using to establish Canada's Best PickleballClub.
Within a few weeks we will publish the final criteria that is being used.
Then just after Labour Day, we will launch the final vote for Canada's Best Pickleball Club which will run through the end of September and awards to be announced and presented in October 2023.
