Pickleball

Seasonal Outdoor and Indoor Pickleball

Pickleball was created with one thing in mind: fun. It was designed to be easy to learn and play, whether you’re five, eighty-five, or somewhere in-between. It is traditionally played on a badminton-sized court with special pickleball paddles, made of wood or high-tech aerospace materials. The ball used is similar to a wiffle ball, but slightly smaller. The wiffle ball and smaller court size allow the game to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities, while still allowing more competitive players to test their mettle. 

Seasonal Outdoor Pickleball
The double tennis courts at the Wilson Park Community Centre (66 Northey's Bay Road, Woodview, ON K0L 3E0) are active from May through October. 

The courts can accommodate pickleball as well as traditional tennis. The pickleball lines are yellow, in order to differentiate them from the white tennis lines. Additionally, there are the Wilson Park Pickleball Club and the Wilson Park Ladies Tennis Club, for those interested in joining up with like-minded players. 

Reserved Court Times: 
Tuesday mornings (9 am-12 pm) are reserved for The Wilson Park Pickleball Club.
Wednesday mornings (9 am-12 pm) are reserved for The Wilson Park Ladies Tennis Club.
