The new system will save many hours of membership administration at all levels and have many unique features. Stay tuned for more info on PCNS!


We are in need of more people with first aid certification for the Nationals and for the RDPC.  The registration cost will be covered by RDPC.

Refs are needed for Pickleball Canada’s National Tournament!

If you are interested in either of the following opportunities email with your questions.

Training for both Line Judges and Referees is provided by the club with no expense to the participants.

Want the best seat in the house at a medal match, be a Line Judge! We are looking for about 40 pickleball players who can take the Line Judge exam and attend a 1-hour training session. Your commitment would be for several hours a day for as many days as you want to work during the 6 days of the National Tournament.

We are also looking for referee's to work all matches at the National Tournament. You will need to be an experienced pickleball player who is willing to learn the rules well and apply them on the court. You will need to study the rules, attend a 3-hour session on referee Best Practices and write 3 exams. Then you will need to practise and do a practical evaluation on the court while officiating games to become certified.

Please welcome your 2021-22 Red Deer Pickleball Club Board Members

Best of luck on the year ahead!

  1. I just would like to say that Brenda Feser should receive a medal for all that she has done for the Red Deer Pickleball Club and for Pickleball throughout Alberta for many years. She has been one of the most impactful individuals in the development of the sport in Red Deer and indeed Alberta. Her involvement in Pickleball in Red Deer began somewhere around 2011 and without her efforts the tremendous progress of the Red Deer Club has made over the past 10 years has largely been because of people like Brenda. She served on the Red Deer Pickleball Club executive as Secretary and President. She was also a Pickleball Ambassador and her time commitment to the sport is unbelievable. Brenda kept meticulous records of play and through many of her efforts allowed the Red Deer Pickleball Club to present a strong argument for building new courts in Red Deer. In concert with working with Val Vollmin in particular and a few others in the Red Deer Pickleball Club has the finest Pickleball playing facility in Canada. If you see Brenda around the courts everybody ought to thank her for her efforts. Dick Feser, Brenda’s husband has also done much often behind the scenes work that made this club what it is today. We often take for granted what we have in RDPC but just know that without people like Brenda Feser we might still be playing Pickleball in abandoned Tennis Courts. It has taken visionaries like Rick Anderson, Val Vollmin, Brenda Feser plus others to get us to this place. The torch has been passed to a largely new executive led by Ted Sherback and I know it is in hood hands moving forward.
