The City of Waterloo has been offering pickleball for all ages and all abilities since 2014. This program is always embracing new players and our staff work to make the experience enjoyable for all levels of physical and competitive ability.
Everything you hear about pickleball related to its physical, social and mental challenges and values that the game generates is real. Our competent and profession game staff are here to engage your mind, body and spirit. Accommodating beginner, intermediate and advanced player opportunities to match your current and evolving skill and interest is how we continue to grow. Clinics, tournaments and numerous social opportunities are additional offerings that round out and broaden the play among our club members.
We have everything that you need to begin play. Simply let your curiosities about this international game phenomenon lead you to our doorstep and we’ll assist you from there! If you can’t come to us, maybe we can make arrangements to come to you and your special interest group, friends or social gathering to help out!
Are you sporty, single and looking to hook up? If so, PickupHub might just be the answer!
Waterloo’s own PickupHub is definitely Waterloo’s newest recreation participation sensation. Using web-based technology (available on desk top and mobile web browsers), independent athletes can review a schedule of preplanned sports and join a game online with ease. With games posted well in advance of game day, PickupHub allows the sporting community to build on player interests and generate game commitment. By securing game spots, players are effectively communicating their intention to play which is the advantage over standard drop-in programs. Ultimately, advance commitment leads to better quality games and experiences. The guess work about attendance and commitment for programs is eliminated.
Our experience to date with PickupHub has been extremely positive. As a result, Waterloo is progressively adding additional sports to the program portfolio and expanding our PickupHub clientele base daily. You want game — we got game!
