It is with regret we announce that Kenwood Athletic Club will close at 12:01am on Wednesday, January 5th to comply with the Ontario Provincial Governments 21-day shutdown. We will re-open promptly on January 26th, 2022. As we have done in the past 3 shutdowns the KAC will credit members with time lost. Thank you for your continued patronage throughout the pandemic.

Only $7.00 (includes HST) for non members.

PLAYING PICKLEBALL AT KENWOOD 

Kenwood is working hard to be one of the best venues in the Ottawa area to play indoor pickleball. Memberships are available by the month or via 3 month, 6 month or yearly. Drop in play is still allowed, however we strongly recommend that you consider one of our membership options, since they provide the best value & the most flexibility. 

 

Members play for free during the weekday periods of 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM, and are given priority for booking and for play. They are also provided with discounts for play on evenings & weekends, as well as discounts on lessons & clinics.

PLAYING PICKLEBALL AT KENWOOD DURING WEEKDAYS OUTSIDE OF OPEN PLAY TIMES

 

Currently almost all pickleball courts have been booked months in advance without payment. We will be deleting all (non member) court bookings soon.

 

1. To play pickleball requires you to either:

  • Sign up as an individual to play in a organized league 

OR

  • Be part of a group of 1-6 pickleball players who would like to play during a weekday pickleball session. 

    • One of your group of players must book a pickleball court during that session time. The charge for non members to do this is $5 plus HST

    • the remaining members of your group must then sign up for weekday pickleball play during that same time period. The charge for non members to do this is $5 plus HST. If a member of your group has not booked a court then you will not be able to play even if you have booked to play open play.

 

2. Kenwood Athletic Club members can book courts up to one week in advance. Non members can book courts only one day in advance if any are available. 

 

3. Members do not pay for booking courts or for signing up for open play during this time period. Non members must pay $5 plus HST for booking courts or signing up for open play. 

 

4. Kenwood Athletic Club members can make a fixed number of bookings per week in advance. They can make additional bookings one day in advance if spots are still available.
