Pickleball

Play the fastest growing sport in North America! Pickleball is fun, easy to learn and can be played at all ages. It combines elements of badminton, ping-pong and tennis.

It can be played as doubles or singles, either indoors or outdoors, on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. Equipment consists of a paddle and a plastic ball with holes.

Rent Pickleball Equipment

Nets, balls and paddles are available for loan from the South End Public Library and the Valley East Public Library.

The French interface of our new registration system is still under development, however it is important that the City goes live with the new system as the existing registration and facility booking system is no longer supported by the vendor. Residents can still receive this service in French by calling 311 to have a French-speaking operator process bookings or registrations. The French interface will be launched in time for the fall/winter registration period.
