Pickleball

The province of Nova Scotia has announced that ‘effective October 4, 2021, people are required by law to show proof that they are fully vaccinated to participate in discretionary, non-essential events and activities where people gather together’. Participants (12yrs+) will be asked to provide proof of vaccination & identification upon arrival at the facility and adults accompanying children 11yrs or younger must also comply. We will not be collecting or keeping record of vaccination status; patrons must show proof of vaccination during each visit. Full details can be found by clicking here. 

These procedures below are subject to change based on the public health guidelines.

Pickleball, a racket sport played indoors on a badminton-size court is designed much like tennis but is played at a slower pace with a few differences.

Outdoor Pickleball at the PRCC

The outdoor multi-use, sports court construction was completed in the Fall of 2018.  The court is currently lined for multiple pickleball courts, and portable nets are located in a locked storage box secured to the court fence.  The key to access the nets is available at the PRCC Front Desk during our current open hours. The hours in which the key will be available will match the open hours for our Fitness Centre; these hours are updated on a weekly basis. For the hours of operation for the Fitness Centre click here.

Note that the PRCC is unable to loan equipment for use on the sports court.
