Myrtle Park Pickleball Courts are Open!

Two new courts on an expanded pad are now open for public play just south of the tennis courts! Having decided that Little Cates park was suitable for four courts only, the DNV parks’ staff added two here to increase the number of walk-up-and-play courts east of Seymour to six.

Send me a picture for me to include here!

Join us for the Grand Opening of the Little Cates Courts!

Wednesday September 14, 10-am

Mayor Mike Little has accepted our invitation to formally open the four new dedicated courts at Little Cates.  Even if you usually play at Murdo, Mahon or Normanby, please come out to help us show our appreciation for these new courts and the Mayor’s support for “walk-up-and-play” pickleball across the District.  

We want more of course, so come out and show your support! 

There will be coffee, cake and rotational play too. For those visiting for the first time, the courts are on Sea Shell Lane.

Did You Know: DNV leads the NS in dedicated permanent pickleball courts with 11 including 2 new courts at Myrtle which will open this fall. (I think that’s more than all of Vancouver.) CNV and WV each have 4.
