The Summerland Pickleball Club celebrated the end of the season with a barbecue and social gathering last week.
The club was founded last summer and has grown to more than 100 members, many of whom were introduced to the sport by fellow club members.
Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in North America.
Earlier this year, the club worked with Summerland’s Recreation Department to convert one tennis court at the Peach Orchard campground to two pickleball courts.
The second tennis court is available to play either sport.
Club members enjoy both social and competitive games. Experienced club members provide introduction to the sport and free coaching sessions.
Club members will continue to play at Peach Orchard as long as weather permits. In addition, indoor facilities will be rented at a few locations in town.
