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.
Indoor Pickleball Program
The CKE Indoor Pickleball Program will be starting soon! The program runs from October through to May. The Indoor Pickleball Program is for CKE pickleball players of all skill levels and is intended to be recreational, otherwise known as ‘social play’. We have limited indoor capacity and the Indoor Pickleball Program is for CKE Residents only. Current CKE Community Membership is required.
The first session runs Monday October 2 to Friday December 29,, 2023. Please note, if the conditions are still good, we will likely continue playing outdoors until the snow flies!
- Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings with two sessions each day: 9:00 – 10:30 am and 10:30 am – 12:00 pm.
- Each session is limited to 6 participants.
- Weekly sign-ups are facilitated through SignUpGenius.
- Participation in a WhatsApp Group Chat is encouraged to communicate with other members in the Program.
If registration numbers warrant it, we will arrange additional sessions from 12:00 – 1:30 pm on Mondays and/or Wednesdays.
Program Fees – October to December Session
- To play 1 session/week $60
- To play 2 sessions/week $120
We have limited space to register as an Alternate. Alternates may sign-up to play once a week only after regular players have signed-up and if spaces remain on the schedule. Cost is $30.
We encourage participants to be realistic about how often they can commit to playing during the week.
To register, email Jen at email@example.com and indicate if you would like to play 1 or 2 sessions/week or if you would like to sign up as an Alternate. Jen will confirm space is available and then ask you to e-transfer the appropriate program fee.
At this time we do not allow bookings or rentals of the Courts by CKE residents or anyone else. The 3 exceptions are: the schools in CKE neighbourhoods may rent the Courts, we book the Courts off for group lessons, and we book the Courts off for the CKE Pickleball Drop-In Program & related events.
