Our Vision Statement


To enrich the experience of pickleball

Our Cities

We would like to thank the City of Coquitlam, the City of Port Moody and the City of Port Coquitlam for the on going meetings with us and being very receptive to help our Club and all Pickleball players reach our goal of dedicated courts and more playing time.

We appreciate that the staffs have included us in future plans.

Our Ideas


Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in North America and as such has been embraced by many local residents. Due to the popularity of the sport, there were many requests over the past several months to form a club and become more organized.

Registration

We invite you to sign up as a member and help us be the voice in the communities we have chosen to represent. Our goal is to advocate for more dedicated pickleball courts, indoors and outdoors.

Membership

There is a requirement to have Pickleball BC (PBC) and Pickleball Canada (PCO) membership for insurance purposes.

  • PoCoMo fee is $20.00
  • PBC fee is $2.50
  • PCO fee is $10.00

Our Name

The name PoCoMo Pickleball Club was chosen to reflect the geographical area we would represent (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra). The name is registered provincially as a non-profit society and it is a fun loving name, much like the name Pickleball.
