Presidents Welcome


In September 2014, a group of dedicated pickleball players in Ottawa decided to form an Association to promote their favorite sport and help to build a local pickleball community.  We have come a long way in just a couple of years.  The Ottawa Pickleball Association (OPA) has something for players of all levels, from beginner to advanced – recreational or competitive.

Pickleball players are physically active and friendly.  Successful gameplay depends on good sportsmanship and honour, and we pickleball players are VERY successful.  Every week brings new people to the sport.

The OPA incorporated as a Not-For-Profit as of November 2014 and that means all profits go back into our sport. The association is supported solely by volunteers. That is good news for you as we can keep costs down and you benefit directly.

You can register for membership on our web site for $15.00 annually. You automatically become entitled to OPA organized facilities, training, social events, and reduced entry fees to OPA tournaments. Information on where to buy pickleball equipment (sometimes at discount prices) can be found in our monthly newsletter.

We are enthusiastic players who work in cooperation with the City of Ottawa to provide gym time, training, support and assistance to all pickleball players. We are sincerely grateful to the City of Ottawa for all their help and we look forward to working in partnership with the City for many years to come.

Pickleball is growing in Ottawa. Spread the word!
