There a great new sport in Nelson — and it’s called Pickleball.

Nelson pickleball has taken over Selkirk College’s Mary Hall gym on Sunday for an afternoon of continuous play on five courts.

For people unaware of the sport, pickleball is the fastest growing game in North America, especially with the 55-plus crowd.

But anyone is welcome to join the players who can usually be found playing at Mary Hall (10th Avenue campus) Monday to Thursday 10:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and on Fridays and Sundays at 1:30, p.m. as long as the gym is free.

Selkirk students often join the regular players, notably several students from India who are enrolled in the Hospitality and Tourism program.

It’s an easy-to-learn sport which is played on a badminton-sized court with a hard paddle (often graphite) and a wiffle ball. For more information visit Pickleball Canada or this link.
