On Sunday, August 13th, Comox Valley Pickleball Assoc. celebrated National Pickleball Day with a goal to get 150 people out in celebration of Canada’s birthday and participACTION 150. We succeeded in attracting close to 150 players of all ages and levels of play, including first time players ranging from children with their parents to seniors.
The 6 tennis courts at Lewis Park in Courtenay were taped to create 12 pickleball courts and the two practice courts were used for teaching. After their lessons the newbies joined in with the more experienced players and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was a FUN day as players of all levels came together for some games and a chance to socialize and see old friends and to meet new ones.
A thank you to Courtenay Recreation for the use of the tennis courts and a big thank you to Royal LePage Real Estate for so generously providing and setting up a tent for our use. Also, thank you to all who joined in so enthusiastically to make this a great event.
