Pickleball started in about 1965 in Seattle and spread across the USA. Now it is sweeping across Canada, led by snowbirds when they return home.

It appeals to all ages, so youth can compete vigorously and grandparents can play with grandkids. It is played on a court similar to a badminton court with the net height similar to tennis. The paddle is similar to the size and shape used for table tennis and the ball is a large plastic one with holes. The game is played to 11 points.  Pickleball Canada was founded in 2006 and now has Board members from almost every province. We encourage you to visit the website to learn how the game is played.  Pickleball has been an event in the SSFA 55+ Games since 2011.  

 

2019 DISTRICT GAMES

Thanks to all participants who joined their peers in a friendly competition. The district games took on a different schedule by having them held in the fall of September 2019 as opposed to the spring, May 2019.  The reason for the change was that the Provincial 55+ Games had to be moved from July to June, 2020.  Events that have been finalized are golf, cribbage, 5 pin bowling and pickleball.  The participants that qualified will compete on June 16 to 18, 2020 at the Provincial 55+ Games in Prince Albert.  In the fall of 2020, the district games will again be planned.  Many will not have to purchase a 2020 membership as they will have done so on April 1, 2020 to compete in Prince Albert.

The clubs who hosted the events in the district games are to be commended on their effort to engage seniors in activities that they enjoy and is very much appreciated.  These include the Weyburn Pickleball Club, Stoughton Senior Centre, Weyburn Bowling Alley and Carnduff Golf Course.  Thanks to the individuals who organized the events.

Look forward to information regarding the 2020 District Games in the fall of 2020.
