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!
- Use courts on a first-come, first served basis
- Saanich programs and special events have priority
- Limit play to 30 minutes or one set if others waiting
- Team up and play doubles where possible
- Use courts for racquet sports only
We have been given exclusive use of the two Pickleball Courts at McMinn Park for Thursday’s from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. This is effective immediately and ends at the end of September. You are encouraged to use the courts as much as possible during those times so that our permit is justified. A reminder that for Outdoor Pickleball, you will need to have your own racquet.
