Spring Fest, a fun event for children, was held at Gleneagles Community Centre on May 5, 2018.
The North Shore Pickleball Club held a very successful one-day tournament on March 24, 2018. We had 78 entries in two separate formats: a rotating partner format, and a fixed partner format.

We also would like to thank the tournament director, Charles Neufeldt, and the NS Pickleball Club President, Linda Sullivan who supervised the day’s events.
