Barrie Pickleball Club Mission

  • Acquire and develop more facilities, times and places to play
  • Create opportunities for skills and player development by offering relevant and diverse programming

Who We Are

Barrie Pickleball Club is a not-for-profit group, which incorporated on June 14, 2021.

We are a group of passionate and dedicated pickleball players advocating for the needs of all pickleball players in our community. Before formalizing, our advocacy resulted in the addition of a pickleball court on the Sandringham Park tennis court and subsequent construction of both the original Painswick Park and Redpath Park dedicated pickleball courts.

Highlights in 2021 included, receiving a $25,000 New Horizons for Seniors Grant which the Club turned over to the City of Barrie.  The grant funds were used toward the construction of 2 additional dedicated courts at Painswick Park as well as court equipment for the Club.  Our advocacy and determination in expanding places to play also resulted in 4 dual purpose courts at Greenfield Park.  

In 2022, City Council approved a Staff Report recommending the construction of an 8 court tournament facility at Painswick Park. Construction on those courts was completed in the fall of 2023.  Six of the new courts are built to competitive play specifications and 2 are built to elite/wheelchair size specifications.  We believe the 2 elite/wheelchair size courts will be the first outdoor courts of their kind in Ontario.

In the fall of 2022 construction of 4 dedicated courts at Eastview Park was completed. 

The Club plays indoors at several public and catholic schools in Barrie throughout the fall/winter months.

Currently the Barrie Pickleball Club consists of the following directors and founding members:
Gil Metcalfe, Kim Porter, & Tamara Crawford.
