Pickleball

Enjoy indoor and outdoor pickleball at various locations throughout Kelowna. Due to COVID-19 safety measures in place, all Pickleball (indoor and outdoor) is currently limited to singles play only. However, you can play doubles outdoors if your playing partner is from the same household and 3 meters distance is remained between households.

Accessing or setting up your recreation account

If you're unsure if you have an existing recreation account with the City, here's some quick steps to guide you.

  • Have you ever registered in a program from Kelowna's Activity & Program Guide OR purchased a membership at PRC? 
    If so, you likely already have an account set up under the email you registered with. You can check by entering your email here. If you have an existing account, you will be able to reset your password and have access to pre-book the pickleball courts.   
  • If you have never registered in a program, or if entering your email does not work, there are currently two ways to to inquire about existing accounts or to set up a new account:
    • Call Active Living & Culture at 250-469-8800 
    • Visit the front desk at Parkinson Recreation Centre and one of our clerks can assist you
