About Pickleball

Come and play pickleball, the fastest growing sport in North America, at the three dedicated courts above LVR School. 

The season pass fees, collected by the Nelson Tennis Club, are used for resurfacing and maintaining the courts. The season pass does not purchase membership into either the tennis or pickleball clubs. Pickleball play is managed by a volunteer group of pickleball players. (read more)
