The Milton Pickleball Association is aware of the huge population growth in Milton and that it is primarily young families. Historically, the majority of pickleball players have been seniors who play during the day when facilities are more available. The Milton Pickleball Association wants to see the sport grow in Milton and we see that growth potential the highest with families. The challenge is having court time available when parents and/or their children have the time - in the evenings.
Two areas that need enhancement include additional pickleball court lines on outdoor tennis courts for fair weather play and evening time slots at the indoor drop-in facilities. The Association approached the Town about lines being installed on the remaining tennis courts in town. This request was supported by Recreation staff, budget money was assigned for 2020 and lines have now been added to the tennis courts at Bronte Meadows Park. Indoor evening time slots have also been requested, but both the Velodrome and Leisure Centre schedules are currently full.
The Association is prepared to investigate renting space in Milton if we see interest.
