Pickleball *NEW*

Unique to HSSC, our Pickleball program will include two learn-to-play instructional sessions,  eleven weeks of open play and two tournament nights spread throughout the season!  This combination of programming will bring you up to speed and ready to compete with your friends or co-workers already enjoying the sport.

Our program is designed for new players however those with some experience are welcome to join us.  There will be the opportunity to play against those of similar skill level as well as mixing in with other players throughout the evening.

Learn the Game & League Format

Check out this video to learn about the game of Pickleball:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTvPYdKZqO0 

How our Open Play will run (Split Bench System):

  • Teams (Pairs) are random to start the evening
  • When a game is completed, the winning pair goes to one bench, the losing pair goes to the other.
  • When a court becomes available, the next 4 players in-line from one bench will begin playing (2 v 2).
  • Court availability rotates between the winning and the losing benches.
  • Your partner and opponent may be different for each game which will encourage a social atmosphere & a variety in game play!
  • The courts will be reserved for 2 hours (stay for the full time or drop by when you like).  

Equipment

All Pickleball equipment will be provided at the Curling Club (pickleballs, paddels, nets). All players are responsible for bringing CLEAN indoor shoes. Boots, outdoor shoes are not acceptable - players will not be allowed to play.
