RE-OPENING UPDATE-July 12th, 2021

Gord and I have decided that Lakeshore Recreation will re-open on Tuesday September 7. There are 4 main reasons for this decision. Financial viability to re-open during our least busy season (July and August), a reduced number of existing staff available to cover summer shifts, the input from many members telling us they won’t be back until September, and the current number of Covid cases locally. With Grey Bruce being designated as an Ontario hot spot for Covid we are not comfortable opening under these conditions. We appreciate the support from staff and members as we have gone through multiple closings. Our plan is to continue to freeze memberships as we have for the past 17 months when we were forced to close. All memberships will be reactivated on September 7.

Enjoy your summer activities and stay healthy.

Please get your vaccine as we all do our part to end this pandemic.

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

JUNIOR TENNIS LESSONS will begin July 5th.  See OUTDOOR FITNESS on our website for more information. 

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.  

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.
