President’s Message

November 14, 2019 will mark the 5th anniversary of the OPA-APO. Exciting times are ahead, and I’m thrilled to be joining the board at this important juncture. As we embark on a year of celebration and commemorative events, it’s important to take a moment to look back on the journey of the association and the incredible progress and milestones we have achieved. In doing so, it’s imperative I send my sincere thanks to the past President, board members, and all the volunteers who have been instrumental in the achievements and progress of the association.

The OPA-APO has grown tremendously over the past five years.The associated started out with a dedicated group of individuals who worked hard to seek out venues and opportunities for weekly play, growing the offerings each year. At present, each week we offer 12 at-level Leagues, 9 Skills & Drills sessions, 2 mixed-level Socials, and 6 Single Course Usages. There are 400 members in the OPA-APO, and we are excited to provide a diverse slate of playing opportunities to meet our members’ varied needs and goals.

With the popularity of pickleball in the National Capital Region, the options for weekly play are growing. In addition to expanding and enhancing our services for our members, we are continuing to look at strengthening relationships with other Ottawa pickleball providers. We believe there is benefit in exploring partnership options that would benefit our members. We are also investigating the possibility of a new dedicated OPA-APO facility, to be the hub of pickleball in the nation’s capital.

The OPA-APO is living its values of respect, fairness, integrity, honesty, transparency and safety and welcome your feedback at any time. I wish you all an enjoyable pickleball season.
