Pickle Ball is played on a badminton-size court with the net about the height of a tennis net. We play singles or doubles, depending on the number of people who come. Each person uses a paddle a bit bigger than a ping pong paddle and a wiffle ball. The rules are similar to ping pong. It’s not a strenuous game and we’re there mostly for the fun.
Please wear safety glasses when playing pickle ball. If you do not wear glasses, please consider purchasing a pair of safety glasses. They are available through local sports shops. Your eyesight is very important!
CB55+ Pickleball is only open to members who have taken beginner lessons. If you know of someone who would like to play, please refer them to Henderson, Commonwealth or one of the other Recreation Centres to take a Beginner’s Course. Due to the size of our current membership, we will not be offering Beginner Lessons in January to 55+ Members. You must be a member of CB55+ to play with the Pickelball group and to be covered by our Association’s Insurance policy. Membership for the remainder of 2018 is $20.
To new players, please ensure that your name, phone number and email are listed on the weekly pickleball attendance list at Commonwealth. By doing this, you are added to the pickleball list and will receive email updates.
The major aim of our group is to have FUN as well as learn to mprove. Please contact Pat Bancroft or Ted Dobie if you are interested. email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
