We are thrilled to announce that with Ontario's reopening plan our outdoor facilities opened on Saturday, May 22nd with restrictions.

8 PICKLEBALL courts and 2 TENNIS courts are available to use. 

JUNIOR TENNIS LESSONS will begin July 4th.  See OUTDOOR FITNESS on our website for more information. 


The indoor fitness area will not be open for use.   All indoor memberships have been put on hold from Saturday, April 3rd and reactivated the day we are permitted to reopen.

Keep an eye on Facebook, Instagram or here for further updates.



Courts are open for members to use. Memberships or day passes ($7) can be paid to Lakeshore Recreation by slipping a cheque or cash through the main doors across the parking lot.  Prices are posted and forms and envelopes are provided. 


There is NO pre booking a court. You will have to show up and wait your turn.  

You MUST sign the contact tracing form each time to play.

Shoe tags will be distributed to those who have paid for a seasonal membership.

Please bring your own water and sanitizer.

 PICKLEBALL: Because of Covid 19 you may choose to only play with a small group of people. You still must come off the court after each game and join the rotation for the next available court, even if you intend to play with the same players.

Saugeen Shores Pickelball Club will begin its schedule in June.

TENNIS: Courts are available for a maximum of 1 hour per group, changing on the hour. You must come off on the hour if people are waiting to play. If no one is there you may stay on until someone comes to play.

Stay healthy. Follow our guidelines. Be kind.
