Come Play Pickleball With Us
The North Shore Winter Club is excited to launch its indoor pickleball program! The new pickleball courts are located in the upper indoor tennis court area.
There are four pickleball courts: two permanent courts and two convertible courts. All four pickleball court surfaces are standard hard court with roll-out and lock-in place nets. The courts can be booked 5 days in advance through the NSWC’s GameTime online booking system.
Scheduled for Spring 2021 the NSWC’s outdoor rooftop tennis courts will be resurfaced. During this renovation four convertible outdoor pickleball courts will be added bringing the total number of pickleball courts at the Club to eight.BOOK A COURT
The growth of pickleball in Canada and the USA has significantly surpassed the numbers in squash and racquetball. The game is played both indoors and outdoors on a court the same size as a badminton doubles court using paddles, a plastic perforated ball and a net that is two inches lower than a tennis net. Pickleball is an addictively fun and yet challenging game that can be quickly enjoyed by all ages and abilities.
Paddles and Balls
Want to try this new fun game everyone is talking about but you don’t have a pickleball paddle? No problem! You can rent a paddle at Members Services for $5. No ball? No problem! Balls can be purchased for $5. Book a court and play today! Pickleball is fun, provides exercise, and is addictive. See you on the courts!
Please note, once you fall in love with pickleball… paddles are available for purchase at Time Out Source for Sports (don’t forget, members receive a 15% discount!).
Check out the Video ‘Pickle-ball Paddle Core Differences’ under the Videos and Tips page to learn more about paddles.
One of the things that makes pickleball so fun is socials! Socials allow groups of players of the same level to get together and play quick matches then rotate and play others. Currently due to Covid only singles is allowed at the NSWC. However, we are looking forward to implementing weekly socials, quarterly tournaments, and mixed double mixers as protocols permit.
Stay tuned: New events will be posted on this page when available!See Upcoming Events
