The pickleball craze is in full swing in Montreal.
With leisure sports like pétanque on the rise, along with our favourite ping pong clubs upping their food and drink game, it was only a matter of time before the combination of tennis, table tennis and racquetball took over the city.
Cropping up in parks and in hockey arenas across town, Montrealers are embracing this sport like never before.
What is pickleball?
Picture a racquet sport that is a blend of tennis, badminton and ping-pong, played with solid rackets and a wiffle-style ball.
Where can I play pickleball in Montreal?
From five new regulation-size courts in Côte-St-Luc’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park to the recently added courts in Lasalle at Parc Hayward — along with four pickleball courts at Warren-Allmand and Martin-Luther-King parks — you can also check out Club CDL (home to Canada's top-ranked doubles Pickleball player, Ernesto Fajardo).
