Join Or Renew

Why should you join the Sunrise Pickleball Club?

First and foremost, membership allows you to play at Rusch Park during our designated club drop-in times (current schedule can be found on the home page). We are a diverse and friendly group, and our outdoor dedicated courts are some of the best in the region.  Your dues help fund important facility maintenance and improvements that the park district is not able to pay for.

Some other benefits are:

  • Admittance to all club functions such as Round Robin Mixers, intra-club tournaments, ladder play, social events, parties, etc.
  • Reduced registration fee for pickleball clinics or lessons sponsored by Sunrise Recreation & Park District
  • Reduced registration fee for tournaments sponsored by Sunrise Recreation & Park District if you volunteer to be a tournament referee

2019 Dues Increase

At the last membership meeting, members unanimously voted to support an increase in yearly dues– for 2019 only– to $50, to help raise money for additional courts. On October 5, the Board of Directors voted to increase the yearly membership dues for 2019 to $50 per individual, and also eliminate the family membership. 

We are now accepting 2019 memberships and renewals. If you join or renew today, your membership will be good now through December 2019.

Why was it necessary to form a dues-based club at Rusch Park?

While considering construction of dedicated pickleball courts in 2016, the Sunrise Recreation and Park District asked supporters for several things. One, they wanted players to form an official club, so that the club could help manage the courts and act as the liaison between the players and the district. Second, they asked for some financial help in the construction of the courts. A core group of 28 players contributed $2,900 towards the nets and net posts, as well as many work hours painting, gardening, and helping with repairs. Third, the park district asked the club to help run any tournaments put on by the district. A dedicated group of volunteers has agreed to take on these additional responsibilities so that pickleball can continue to thrive at Rusch Park.  Money collected from membership dues goes towards maintenance and upgrades to the courts, special events, and the administrative requirements of running the club. We ask for your support by becoming a member.
