Indoor Pickleball is returning to The Ripley Huron Community Centre beginning October 7, 2019!

The Ripley Huron Community Centre is happy to announce that we will be offering an indoor pickleball once again beginning Monday, October 7th, 2019 and will continue for the duration of the winter months before it is safe and appropriate to move our program back outdoors at the beginning of June 2020!  Every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday afternoon from 1:30-3:30pm, two pickleball courts will be mapped out on the auditorium floor for community members to use.  Registration is required before your first visit, and then afterwards, you are all set to just show up, pay, and play!  Cost is only $2.00 per participant per visit!  So round up some opponents and come on over to The Ripley Community Centre this October 2019 - May 2020 for some physical activity, competition, and fun!  No experience required.
