Recreation Programs

We offer a variety of recreation programs. In addition to annual seasonal programs such as baseball, gymnastics, soccer, swimming, an adult hockey league, and figure skating, we also sponsor other programs such as ping pong, adult pickleball, pick-up hockey, and plenty of public skating.

We work closely with the AMHA (Apsley Minor Hockey Association), and host a Junior C hockey team - the North Kawartha Knights. There is also the fully-equipped NKCC Fitness Centre, and various fitness classes are offered. In the Summer there are beach volleyball, basketball, and tennis/pickleball courts, as well as a baseball diamond at Wilson Park.

Pickleball (Adult, Seasonal, Indoor)
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. 

Indoor Pickleball is played at the NKCC on Wednesdays as part of the ABC Seniors Group. You must be an ABC Seniors Group member in order to play. For more information about the ABC Seniors Group, see our Community Groups page. 

Adult Pickleball for male and female adults (ages 18 and up) is played from September to June, on Monday and Thursday nights, from 7 pm to 9 pm, at the Apsley Public School (238 Burleigh Street, Apsley ON K0L 1A0).

Therefore, although we will no longer be offering Red Cross Swim Programs we are transitioning to the Lifesaving Society's accredited programs, some of which we have offered in the past.

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.
