WHO WE ARE
SPI is a welcoming organization that thrives on diversity and inclusion. We welcome players of all ages, skill levels and interests. We structure our programs and activities to promote engagement, social connection and accessibility, ensure fairness and equity, and make space for all to have fun with the game.
We treat one another with dignity and respect on and off the courts.
We all share responsibility for the safety of our members and it takes priority in everything we do.
We conduct all our activities ethically and transparently and honour our commitments.
