Pickleball 

Please note: The pickleball program will only operate once Durham Region has entered the Orange - Restrict level.  

Pickleball is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It is played on a badminton sized court with a slightly modified tennis net, a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. In partnership with the Port Perry Pickleball Club, the Recreation staff currently offer pickleball using a reservation system at the Scugog Community Recreation Centre.
