Bellingham Pickleball Club Facebook Page
This BPC Facebook page’s purpose is to post TO the “Bellingham WA Pickleball” group, (and to the BPC website).
If you “follow” the BPC Facebook page, you will receive the BPC updates when posted.

The BPC Facebook page is meant to supplement the Bellingham WA Pickleball Facebook group, not to duplicate it or compete with it.


BPC Pickleball Sessions or Events

To attend some of our BPC hosted pickleball sessions, you must RSVP.

If you wish to start receiving invitations to sessions listed below, you will need to let the host know that by text or email.  Include your name and contact info.

 

Fairhaven Middle School Gym, Bellingham

There are two halves of the gym, each with three lined badminton courts (which means we only need to tape the kitchen lines).  Because volunteer BPC hosts have stepped up, we will have been able to get ½ gym reserved on Tuesday evenings and the whole gym reserved on Thursday evenings.  These will be for designated levels in correlation to the choice of the hosts who are volunteering. 

Courts: 3-6 indoor badminton courts

Cost: Likely $3-8 (sliding scale).
Must be or become a BPC member due to liability requirements.
