Pickleball is a game similar to tennis, played on a smaller court with paddles and a wiffle ball.  Pickleball offers participants a terrific workout and social opportunities. Join in, and see why Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in North America!

Due to the increased participation and popularity of Pickleball in our community and the variety of skill levels of players, we have introduced a court rental system. Court rentals must be approved by Town Staff based on availability. Once approved, payment must be made in full to reserve the court. Please reach out to Jayme Young, at 705-746-2701 x 201 or click here to email Jayme to request your time slot.

Court rentals are welcome to use Town equipment, including balls and paddles, or are welcome to bring their own equipment. We do request that all participants wear indoor shoes on the courts to limit sand/dust which make the courts slippery.
