CKE Community Activities


2021 Pickleball Season

2021 Pickleball Season

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.

Outdoor Drop-In Pickleball – Will Continue to Run Until the Snow Flies!

Recreational outdoor Drop-In pickleball runs Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10:00 – Noon and Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.

To participate a CKE Membership (or Associate Membership) is required and either a) payment of the Court Access Fee or b) the purchase of Pickleball Lessons or Adult Tennis Lessons.

CKE Courts are for the enjoyment of our residents but we will allow a limited number of non-residents to purchase access ( Sorry – non-resident/Associate memberships are SOLD OUT for 2021). 

Please note:  If you have pickleball lessons or adult tennis lessons, you are not required to purchase the Court Access fee

City of Calgary – All Wheels Skatepark

The CKE Skatespot offers a safe and active social space for people of all ages to connect with others, exercise in, and practice their skill! Obstacles include a quarter pipe, curved ledge, ledge/manny pad with wedge, flatbar with landscape flat gap, bank, and a flat ledge.

To help keep the park safe and clean, a locked supply box equipped with cleaning and maintenance supplies is located at the park. This initiative relies on “key holders” from the skate community to help keep the park clean and free of debris. If you are interested in being a key holder, please contact Calgary Association of Skateboarding Enthusiasts (CASE) – chair@calgaryskateboarding.com.
