Would you like pickles with that? Pickleball returns to SEAPARC

Once again this year, Sooke's SEAPARC is now offering Pickleball drop-in on Tuesdays and Thursdays. That, and a whole lot more.

A sampler of what a paddle and a whiffle ball look like. Ping pong meets ... something with a whiffle.

Once again this year, SEAPARC is now offering Pickleball drop-in on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

Pickleball is kind of like playing ping pong on the table, with a paddle and a whiffle ball. Or, as described on their website (www.crd.bc.ca/seaparc/), “It combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. “This is an all-ages activity, with a drop-in fee of $4.

There’s also a range of other drop-in activities for children, costing only $2. Fridays include Home Learners’ sports sampler (1:00 – 2:00 p.m.), youth floor hockey (2:15-3:30 p.m.), and “Kids Unplugged” (a mixed bag of activities, 3:30-5:00 p.m., Wednesdays and Fridays).

But wait … there’s more!

Check out the Spring/Summer activity guide recently mailed to homes in Sooke. If you didn’t receive one, you can pick up your copy at SEAPARC, or access the more environmentally version on their website.
