Pickleball

This action packed sport combines elements of badminton, tennis and ping-pong. Players will use solid paddles and a wiffle-like ball, while playing on a badminton-sized court. It is a low impact, high energy sport and the rules are very easy to learn.

Tennis

Hello tennis and pickle ball enthusiasts!! I’m sure you all were as excited as I was to learn that we can return to the courts!

Access Fees:

CKE is putting a combination lock on the gate so you’ll need to pay an access fee of $30/adult to get the code to use the court.  Other communities charge more to access their courts, but we’ve decided to keep the fee low so the courts are accessible to all families.  If you’re in a position to pay a bit more, we’d be most appreciative but there’s absolutely no pressure of course.

Resurfacing Project:

We were scheduled to have our courts resurfaced this spring/summer but I’m sad to report it doesn’t look we can pull it off this year. A group of us have been fundraising tirelessly for the last two years including the submission of 4 grant applications.   The city had approved a grant to cover 75% of the total cost ($189K) which was a huge win for us but because of lost revenue to our community due to COVID restrictions, we fall a bit short of our target.

 

Group lessons (this may change later in the summer) can’t be offered at this time but coach Jelena will be offering private tennis lessons:

Lesson Fees:

$50/hour for one person

$60/hour for 2-6 people (from same household).

If these costs are prohibitive to you, please contact me. 

Please contact her directly to arrange:

Safer use of tennis courts (from the City of Calgary site)

  • If you have any symptoms (fever, cough, fatigue, etc), stay home and isolate.
  • Wash your hands before and after using the tennis courts.
  • Keep your distance, stay away from others. Leave at least 2 metres of space between players at all times.
  • If the tennis court is crowded, head to another court.
  • Each player should bring differently coloured tennis balls to the court. Only pick up/touch your own colours; don’t touch your opponent’s colours.
  • At the end of your match, collect your own coloured balls and wash your hands.
  • Don’t shake hands after the match.

 

Thanks, all!

CKE Community Garden

Get Gardening this Spring!

The CKE Community Garden is a wonderful asset to the Community, providing rich, diverse green space next to the Community Hall.  The CKE Community Garden rents out half beds (4’ x 4’) to members of the community for $35 per year + a current community membership. Fees charged go back into the garden to be used for supplies, plants, and hosting educational events.  If you are interested in renting a plot for spring 2020, or just want to get involved, please send a note to the contact person below.

March 2020

The CKE Community Garden hosted a very successful movie night in February, attended by close to 20 people.  The movie – Can You Dig This – was very well received, and is highly recommended for anyone interested in community development, community gardens, or just the power of planting and growing food.  The film is available for viewing on Amazon Prime.

Plans are in the works for our garden rebuild this spring as we finalize the budget, hire a landscape contractor for the heavier work, and source out supplies.  With those in place we will plan for tasks that can be carried out on a Community work day.  Ideally all this will happen before the May Long Weekend so that planting in the raised beds can happen shortly afterwards. Stay tuned for more information on work dates, workshops and events related to the Garden.
