The Nanaimo Pickleball Club (“The Club”) is committed to the health, safety and well-being of our members during play sessions. Of particular concern are injuries to the eyes caused by the ball or paddle. To this end, the Club mandates that all players must wear some form of eye protection when participating in all Club in all sponsored play/events. Preferred eye protection includes: 

  • Safety glasses or other eye protection such as those used in pickleball, squash or racquet ball.
  • Regular eyeglasses are acceptable but not preferred. 

 If a playing member does not wear eye protection and/or refuses to wear eye protection their play will be restricted. 1st. non-compliance: - the player will be given a verbal warning. 2nd. non-compliance: - will result in 2 weeks restricted from play. 3rd. non-compliance: - will be restricted from further play indefinitely until the member agrees to comply. This policy comes into effect on March 31, 2024
