Sports Programs


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.

Outdoor Pickleball

Enjoy outdoor pickleball from May to September in the Point Clark Community Centre parking lot. Two pickleball courts are painted in the parking lot and pickleball is played Monday to Friday from 9:30AM - 11:30AM. The cost for the season is $40. 

We have 3 designated pickleball courts at the Point Clark Community Centre parking lot, and one beside the Ripley Huron Community Centre.

If you would like your group added to this list, please email the Community Services Department with your information.
