From TSC Vice President, Don Tai
Pickleball has quickly become the most sought-after racquet sport at the Centre. The Thornhill Seniors Club – along with the City of Markham – has been working diligently to provide Pickleball programs for its Members and the community as a whole.
(Note that TSC Pickleball games are SEPARATE from the City of Markham Pre-Registered games)
TSC’s newly formed Pickleball Committee recently implemented a system where all TSC Members who wish to play Pickleball must first register their name on a list under ONE of the following skill levels – Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced /Competitive. Names are registered through the Activity Convenor in the gym.
Once registered, the Member is eligible to participate in TSC Drop-in games at the level they are registered in, to a maximum of 24 players in the gym, on a first-come basis. This is to ensure that an equal opportunity is afforded to each registered Member and to prevent players from playing in more than one skill level. A player who feels they are registered in the wrong level may send an email to request a change, to be approved by the Committee.
AS OF JAN 13, ALL LEVELS ARE FULL AND NO NEW NAMES WILL BE ADDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Although Pickleball is not currently available to new Members, the Club offers a variety of other programs also geared toward exercise and social interaction. I encourage those who did not get into Pickleball for the Winter session to examine the schedule and get involved.
