WE ARE CHANGING TO LED LIGHTING THIS WEEK

Please note that there will be no Pickleball program on Thursday, June 13 and Friday, June 14, 2019

Pickleball is easy to learn, incredibly social and downright fun.

PICKLEBALL

It looks like tennis, sounds like ping pong and favours the same light-on-your-toes action of badminton. But pickleball is a sport in its own right, and an explosion of popularity has made it a fast-growing sport in Canada.

In teams of two, players use small paddles to volley a ball, similar to a wiffleball, back and forth over the net.

It is a game that is appropriate for players of all ages and skill levels and the rules are simple, making it a great introductory sport. Pickleball can also be quite the challenging, fast-paced, and competitive game when people become more experienced at playing.

Play Pickleball - It's contagious!
