Almost anyone can play this sport:  "Say goodbye to being a spectator"


Pickleball is a racquet sport combining elements of tennis, ping pong and badminton. It is played 
indoors and outdoors on a doubles badminton court using a large paddle and whiffle ball. Founded in 
1965 the sport has grown exponentially in North America during the last decade. Pickleball is a culture on to itself 
because of the following ingredients: it
 is a) easy to learn b) fun c) good exercise d) very social 
e) inexpensive to play and f) extremely addictive. It is a game for all ages.

I Want To Play Pickleball:  
 Drop in play at the Timken Centre is available for anyone with a paddle. Cost is $3 per session (2 hours).
There are 10 sessions/week, 
3 are open play and the remaining 7 sessions
are divided into 3 levels of ability....Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced. 
For the benefit of all players please play in the level that is best
suited to your playing abilities.  However, if you don't know how to play you will need to take
a beginner lesson. Check our
Contact Us, Lesson Info page for information on lessons. 
Playing times at Timken are listed on our Playing Schedule page.
Come out anytime, 
have a look and chat with our players before deciding to take up the game.
