WELCOME to our website!  If you find an event or workshop that interests you – JOIN US!

If there is an activity that you wish our committee to organize – LET US KNOW!

We are a group of volunteers that work together to bring active living opportunities to residents of south east Saskatchewan. You can attend workshops to learn new skills to enable you to participate in activities in your community as well as prepare you for the 55+ Games.

If you are interested in joining our group of volunteers, help is always appreciated.  Our activities are held in various communities such as Radville, Carnduff, Stoughton, Estevan, Montmartre and Weyburn.  Whether you want to be a participant and/or a volunteer, you will enjoy yourself.  Our committee has a need for volunteers who want to get involved in planning and organizing activities for seniors. This may be of interest for the newly retired but does not exclude other, if you want an opportunity on a part-time basis.  For more information contact, Margaret @ 306-842-4807 or email - m.gailing@sasktel.net

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.
