We are a club of pickleball enthusiasts. We presently have 6 outdoor courts during the summer months but anticipate growing our presence with the addition of 12 new courts at Confederation Beach Park in 2020 or 2021. In the winter we head inside to school gyms, to practice, perfect and socialize.
All programming at Mother Teresa and Monsigneur de Laval are cancelled until further notice
Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong using a paddle and plastic ball with holes. It is a game that is appropriate for players of all ages and skill levels. Rules for pickleball are simple, making it a great introductory sport. It can also be quite the challenging, fast-paced, and competitive game when people become more experienced at playing.
Because pickleball rules are so similar to ping-pong, it can be easy for practically anyone to learn how to play the game. Whether you’re a beginner who just wants to learn a new sport for fun, or you’re a seasoned player who craves the thrill of more competitive play, pickleball offers something for everyone.
