Summer Sports


 

The Township of Huron-Kinloss is home to a number of sport organizations and sports programs.

Pickleball

One of the fastest growing sports in Ontario can be enjoyed year round in Huron-Kinloss! Pickleball is an indoor or outdoor racket/paddle sport where two players, or four players, hit a perforated hollow polymer ball over a 36-inch-high net using solid faced paddles. The two sides hit the ball back and forth over the net until one side commits a rule infraction.

Indoor Pickleball

The Ripley-Huron Community Centre  has two indoor pickleball courts upstairs  in the Auditorium. Pickleball is held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10a.m. to 11:30a.m, starting October 11, 2022. The cost to play is $2.00/day or $40 for the season. 

Email the Community Services Department for questions or call 519-395-2909
