“What the heck is pickleball?” is a question we get asked a lot.

In short, pickleball blends the rules and skills of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. It is played in singles or doubles on a court with a racket and a light plastic ball.

Pickleball is one of the fastest-growing sports around. And no wonder, it has a lot to offer. Pickleball is:

  • fun,
  • a great social activity,
  • enjoyable at almost any age and fitness level,
  • great exercise,
  • competitive,
  • a great way to relieve stress.

Although our gym in Carleton Place remains temporarily closed due to provincial guidelines, our two outdoor pickleball courts are open for modified hours. Pickleball memberships and day passes are now available for purchase.

How Pickleball Memberships and Day Passes Work

  • Players do not need to be members of the gym at Heritage Fitness to purchase a pickleball membership or day pass.
  • All players on the court need to have a valid pickleball membership or day pass.
  • The cost of a membership for the full 2021 season is $50 +HST ($25 of that cost will be donated to the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital Foundation). Day passes are available for $7.50 +HST. Pickleball memberships are separate from gym memberships for the 2021 season to allow for unforeseen closures of indoor fitness facilities due to provincial guidelines. We hope fitness centres aren’t forced to close again but we are keeping that scenario in mind as we plan for the months ahead.
  • Pickleball memberships and day passes can be purchased using our mobile app (look under Services>Pickleball), at our front desk, or by calling us at 613-253-2112.
  • Court time can be booked using our mobile app, at our front desk, or by calling us at 613-253-2112.
  • One player can book the court for two to four players.
  • All players must check in at the front desk before starting play.
  • Pickleball equipment can be borrowed from our front desk (to be returned after each session).
  • Please note that all gym memberships remain on hold during the provincial lockdown.
