With an increasing demand to play pickleball, two tennis courts at the community centre now include painted pickleball lines. Residents can use these multipurpose courts for either pickleball or tennis.
Pickleball is a unique sport that can be played by all ages and in pairs or doubles. This all-in-one racquet sport combines elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis. Pickleball is played with a wiffleball (about the size of a tennis ball) and a short-handled paddle (larger than a ping pong paddle). – See picture alongside.
Players can book pickleball racquets and balls in-person at the front desk of Mississauga Valley Community Centre at no cost. Equipment is available on a first come first serve basis and subject to availability during the following hours: Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
