“We encourage everyone to do their part to slow the spread of the coronavirus, follow the directions of your state and local authorities, avoid social gatherings, and if possible, stay home and away from people. Soon enough we will be back to playing pickleball regularly.” Update March 19, 2020 (1:00 pm PT)
The TMPC Board of Directors voted during the March meeting to allow members the additional option to online vote this June to fill upcoming vacancies on the board. Previously, members were required to attend the annual membership meeting to vote on paper ballots. The manner of voting will be determined soon, but please know that votes will be kept confidential!
Members in active standing will be able to vote in person at the meeting or online prior to the meeting. (Updated 3/3/2020.)
To see who is currently running for the four vacancies that will open up July 1, 2020, please visit our Board Info page.
And thank you to past board member, Paula Cobb, for suggesting this needed change!

Did you know that TMPC has been an organized club for four years. The original By Laws were voted on July 20, 2015.
Recently, your board has received input from some board members and members of a few laws that perhaps could be updated with approval.
We are asking each TMPC member to review the current by laws and suggest any changes that would benefit the club and it’s members.
A couple of suggestions received so far include:
- Allow multi year memberships (at a discount or not?)
- Twelve month memberships starting on date of membership and not run July 1 to June 30.
- Change the second degree of consanguinity to first degree of cosanguinity for board members.
- Online voting for board positions rather than mandatory attendance for general elections.
If you have suggestions for By Laws changes, please submit them by emailing the club here: TruckeeMeadowsPickleballClub
