Come join the fastest growing sport in Kingston! We offer indoor and outdoor pickleball courts for singles and doubles play.    

Pickleball is similar to tennis, with a few differences. The ball in pickleball doesn't go as fast as a tennis ball and you play it on a smaller court, like the one used for badminton. The net is lower, making the game more accessible to people of all ages and abilities. 

Ready to play but new to the game? Learn how to play pickleball.

Outdoor pickle ball 

Outdoor multiuse courts are open from April to October (weather permitting). Courts are free and available on a  first come, first served basis. As a multiuse court, please bring your own net, paddle and pickleball to play. 

Four dedicated pickleball courts are available at Bayridge Park. Nets are provided.

Indoor pickle ball 

Drop-in pickleball is available throughout the year. 

Nets and pickleballs are provided and a few paddles are available for new players.
