At the Pickleball Canada Association's Annual General Meeting Feb 19,2010, the Board has voted and approved to abide by the international rules and equipment conformity of International Federation of Pickleball.
The debate over rules and specifications has gone on much too long and has promoted divisions within the Canada's Pickleball community. PCA Board has finally put that debate to rest as it pertains to sanctioned tournaments.
This decision now paves the way so that the PCA can conform with the rest of the global Pickleball community. It means that Apike and Hush paddles will be banned from PCA sanctioned tournaments because they do not meet material specifications under the international rules of International Federation of Pickleball.
