During the Current PHO Restrictions:

Singles Outdoors: can be played with any two players as long as you maintain the 3 m separation.

Outdoor Doubles:
Outdoor pickleball can be played by four members of the same household, without the need for 3 m separation.
Three members of the same household cannot play doubles as one member would be teamed up with someone outside of the household and 3 meters distancing would not possible on that side of the net.
Two members from one household can play against 2 members from another household as the 3 m distance requirement is controlled/maintained by the 7' Non-Volley Zone.

Club Covid Guidelines
Should you choose to play at the LC Outdoor Courts its imperative that you follow the posted guidelines established by our Club and Town of LC.
The new variant of Covid has a very high transmission rate. It’s especially important to keep your distance, sanitize your hands/ball/raquet and avoid gathering when not playing. Leave your bag outside of the courts.

From Pickleball BC

4 pm December 3, 2020

We are in receipt of the ORDER OF THE PROVINCIAL HEALTH OFFICER titled GATHERINGS AND EVENTS - December 2, 2020.

After clarification from viaSport pickleball doubles play is NOT permitted effective immediately.

There are two exceptions - youth under the age of 19 and high level athletic individuals.

These restrictions are being placed in response to recent COVID transmission activity surrounding adult sporting activity.

This restriction on doubles pickleball play applies to ALL pickleball play - indoor and outdoor - in the Province of BC - Pickleball BC members AND non members alike. Pickleball singles play is not restricted by the Order.

We ask that all Club Presidents reinforce this message by sending it out via their Club media mechanisms.

Questions, comments, concerns - reply to this email.

Some clarifications:
Source of our information - first level is the PHO Orders, followed by viaSport translation to real sport life. We must follow both. We (Karen) was on a conference call with viaSport 1 pm today, with some 80 other sport representitives.
Who is high performance - quote from a PHO Order: " . .identified by Canadian Sports Institute Pacific as a high performance athlete affiliated with an accredited provincial or national sports organization . ."
Can I play singles if my Club organizes ? No organized play allowed
Me, my spouse, my kids one house OK? Order clarification says 3 max people.
High level does not refer to just your group of 4 players at 4.0 level, isolated or not
Play in contradiction of PHO and viaSport Orders, Guidelines and clarifications may void your PCO insurance coverage
