Pickleball & Tennis
We are excited to have our 6 new pickleball courts open for play. With the eagerness of our members and guests wanting to play, and based on your responses from our January survey, we have revised our drop-in round robin (formerly league day) to be as follows:
These specific hours will be an organized time to come out and meet new players of all caliber. Show up to play a game and have some fun!
The courts will be available at all other times to enjoy playing with friends and family.
The hours of operation are 7 days a week from 7am to 9pm. Members are able to book 7 days in advance and non-members 3 days in advance. Please book with the Pro shop at 613-836-2581 ext 301. Our on-line booking system will be up and running shortly with more details to follow. Please note: that after a rainfall, the courts are unavailable for play for 90 min.
After several years of leading pickleball activities at Amberwood, Yvon Tarte has decided to step back. We are grateful for his support in getting us to where we are now, and look forward to seeing him on the courts soon.
