Happy Holidays

Thursday of this week (December 14 at 10:15AM) is the last day for Pickleball rental at Mary Hall this year. We will be playing again on Tuesday and Thursday, January 2nd and 4th from 12:30PM to 2PM. The first week of January is an anomaly because of Selkirk opening times. Scroll to the bottom of this page to view normal rental playing times.

Happy Holidays from the club committee.

Tricia, Sage, Doug and Gloria.

The following document will be displayed in the gym, so that all players understand the rules and etiquette of the game better.

On rental days (Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays) we have had an average of 20 players to fill the five courts. Welcome to all new players.

Castlegar Tournament


Eight players from Nelson took part in the May 27 Pickleball tournament held at the Castlegar Recreation Complex: Peter, Tim and Gloria, John, Chris, Sage, Angie and Tricia. Kim also attended hoping to find a spot, but the tournament slots were all filled. Congratulations to all, and thanks to Cal, Marcie and family for organizing a great event.

John & Angie of Nelson Pickleball
John: "Angie and I played a double knock out for final game. We won 15-14 and then lost 15-14 to same team, and, as we had lost already once in playoffs, we came in second."

Sage & Chris of Nelson Pickleball
Sage: "Chris and I lost in the semi finals 15-8 to the only team who beat us in the round robin games. We were pleased to have come in 4th in the round robin part, as there were many very good players. I had a great time even if we didn't place. So much fun to play with new faces. The friendly atmosphere was also uplifting."
