More Classes Coming Soon


Valleystream Tennis Club Pickleball Classes

We are busy making plans for the next set of classes, which (if it ever stops raining in Ottawa) will be held at the Valleystream Tennis Club in Ottawa's west end, just south of the Bayshore Shopping Center on Richmond Road.

Again, they will be four-week classes, and we will be offering  "Intermediate to Advanced" and a "Beginner to Intermediate" classes.

We will also be offering a special tune-up class on Thursday, June 1st, which will focus on tournament play. This will be right before the Ottawa Outdoor Pickleball Slam Tournament at the club June 3rd and 4th), so it will be the perfect opportunity to fine-tune your game right on the courts where the tournament will be played.

We have a couple of other ideas brewing as well, so stay tuned for all the details in a few days.
