KAMLOOPS - On Saturday, June 11, the City of Kamloops and Kamloops Pickleball Club will be hosting the grand opening of the new pickleball courts at Riverside Park. These new courts bring the total of designated tournament standard Pickleball courts in the community to eight: four at McDonald Park on the North Shore and four at Riverside Park on the South Shore.

The Kamloops Pickleball Club has been playing in Kamloops since 2008 and officially became a society on Dec. 1, 2014. 

“We are thrilled to have such a nice new facility. It will be well used by our 260 members,” said Thor Friðriksson, President of the Kamloops Pickleball Club.  

In partnership with the City, the Kamloops Pickleball Club plays over 20 hours per week at various City, School District and TRU facilities. 

Celebrate the Grand Opening event starting at 9 a.m. with dignitaries and a ribbon cutting.

Kamloops Pickleball Club and the City of Kamloops would like to thank the Kamloops Blazers Sports Society for their contribution of $25,000 towards the project.
