Pickleball

New! Pickleball comes to Victoria Tennis!

Invented in the United States in the 1960s, pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements from tennis, badminton, racquetball, and table tennis. Easy to learn and play, but most of all loads of fun!  

As a Victoria Tennis Club member, you can now reserve a tennis court to play pickleball. Pickleball is also open to non-members but courts cannot be booked in advance and a guest access fee applies.*

Only two of our nine courts—courts 8 and 9— have pickleball lines on them.

*We do not provide pickleball nets or equipment to players. However, pickleball can be played on specially lined tennis courts using tennis nets.

Initiation Activities

Launched in collaboration with the Association de Pickleball de la région de Québec (ACPRQ), our pickleball initiation activities are open to everyone!

These structured activities are an opportunity to play against players of all levels. An ACPRQ volunteer will oversee the matches. This is a great opportunity for anyone who doesn’t have a pickleball partner.

Nets will already be installed on courts and participants just need to bring their racquets and balls. You do not need a partner. There will be a maximum of eight players per period** (including the volunteer). The activity focuses on doubles play set up as a round-robin style with players rotating every 15 minutes. This way each player will have the chance to play against different players.

Four pickleball periods are organized per week:  

  • Wednesdays from 9:15 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
  • Fridays from 9:15 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

IMPORTANT: These activities will focus on doubles play. However, if there are not enough participants, players may play in singles.

Members can register and participate in these activities for free. The price for non-members is $ 10 + tax.
