 Welcome

to our Orillia & District pickleball group.

We specialize in good games, music,

and lots of laughs.

We are a dedicated group of enthusiasts who play pickleball in and around Orillia, Ontario. Our four courts are located in the roller skating rink at ODAS Park in Severn Township. Our players are mostly from Orillia, but we also host players from Washago,  Gravenhurst, Ramara and Barrie. Playing at ODAS features a good level of competition, laughter, friendship, and being good sports about everything. Winning is only part of having a good game.Pickleball is a very enjoyable way to maintain an active lifestyle.  The sport brings people together. The small court creates a cosy atmosphere where players can socialize and interact, while enjoying the  friendly competition.The camaraderie within pickleball is every bit as valued as the exercise. We laugh a lot.

 

ODAS Park Pickleball is sometimes referred to as Robin’s Hood, as our new home in the facility is a direct result of the efforts of

Robin Eddington, seen above.

 

We’re at the Roller Skating Place at ODAS Park 

4500 Fairgrounds Road, just off of Hwy 12, west of Orillia.

What is pickleball?

Naturally, we are asked this question often, though less often than in past years. The sport is a combination of badminton and tennis, played on a badminton-size court with slight differences. As the court is smaller, pickleball tends to be easier on the joints than tennis and requires less running.Here’s a link to a YouTube description:    https://youtu.be/mavlT3W6fAk

Here is an abbreviated OVERVIEW of the rules of play. For complete rules, go to the Pickleball Canada official site. These rules comply with the International Federation of Pickleball regulations
