Pickleball being played at the Ridge

Barriere Outdoor Club representative Mary MacLennan advises that picklball will be alive and well during the fall and winter months thanks to the gymnasium at the Barriere Ridge becoming available once again.

”Pickleball is moving indoors for the winter starting Monday, Nov. 8, and new players are welcome,” said MacLennan, “Pickleball is an very easy to learn racquet sport. It is a fun, social game that most ages can play.”

She notes that the Barriere Outdoor Club (BOC) provides the basic equipment (nets and balls), and they also have a few extra pickleball paddles for those just starting out.

“Your first time is free of charge and comes with a lesson by one of our Barriere Outdoor Club members,” added MacLennan, “All you need is your indoor sneakers and water.”

Pickleball will be played Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning’s from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. in the Barriere Ridge at 4936 Barriere Town Road.

Cost per session to cover the cost of the gymnasium rental is $5 per session for BOC members, and $7 per session for non-members.

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required.
