Pickleball in Carp

Pickelball in Carp – at the Outdoor Rink

We have reached our maximum membership for the 2021 season. Thank you for your interest, and hopefully the playing season will normalize soon.

What is Pickleball?

Pickelball is a cross between tennis, ping pong and badminton, and played on badminton sized court.

We are pleased to advise that four courts have been painted on the outdoor hockey rink at the Carp Fairgrounds (108 Juanita Ave.).

We would like to thank the city and our councillor Eli El-Chantiry for making this happen.

If you would like further details go to the Carp Pickelball Group Facebook page or contact Ken Perkins or Sue Wynter at 613-850-9952.

COST:  $30 per person for the 2021 season.

ATTIRE:  Running shoes and comfortable clothing to move in

EQUIPMENT:  Players must bring their own racquets to play.  Balls will be provided.

RESTRICTIONS: Players must abide by COVID-19 restrictions that are current at the time of play.

On March 26 2021, Ken Perkins posted this summary on Facebook of the Red Zone rules, in place at this time:

COVID 19 Protocol
The City of Ottawa has just clarified the rules that we must follow while we are classified as a red zone.
1) Singles play only is allowed. No exceptions.
2) There is a grey book in the green storage box that is a Covid 19 log. Every time you play you must sign into the log for Covid 19 tracing.
3) There is a Safety Plan for the Carp Pickleball Group summarizing these rules that will be posted on the wall near the gate where we go onto the outdoor rink area.
4) This posting is your notice of the protocol and the city has advised that bylaw officers may come by and check on us and fines may be levied to individuals if the protocol is not being adhered to.

The four pickleball courts have been reserved for use by the Carp Pickleball Group during the following times:

  • 9:00am-1:00pm Mon.-Fri.
  • 5:00pm-9:pm Mon.-Fri.
  • 9:00am-1:00pm Sat., Sun.

All levels are welcome.
