Pickle Ball is located on the Tennis Courts at the South River Machar Community Centre & Arena (1A Lincoln Ave, South River). The Courts are open to freeplay, however if you wish to book the courts or create a Pickle Ball League please contact the municipal office or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
if you are new to Pickle Ball please review the information below:
- A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.
- Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.
- Played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes.
- Played as doubles or singles.
- Can be enjoyed by all ages and skill level
A pickleball court is the same size as a doubles badminton court and measures 20×44 feet. In pickleball, the same court is used for both singles and doubles play. The net height is 36 inches at the sidelines and 34 inches in the middle. The court is striped similar to a tennis court with right and left service courts and a 7-foot non-volley zone in front of the net (referred to as the “kitchen”). Courts can be constructed specifically for pickleball or they can be converted using existing tennis or badminton courts.
For more information on Pickle Ball, necessary equipment, rules and regulations please visit the USA Pickle Ball Website.

Cycling Routes in our area, click on the links for map details and more information:
1) Around Eagle Lake Loop - The Around Eagle Lake Route is part of the Discovery Routes system and offers a 38.59 km ride; paved with one unpaved section. With many hardwood trees, this route provides the perfect backdrop of fall colours in September and early October.
2) Lake Bernard Cycle - The Sundridge Lions Park, located at the bottom of Paget St is the perfect spot to take off for a challenging trek around Lake Bernard. It is a 23.53km hilly route around Lake Bernard-the same route as used for the triathlon. You will find this route to be a combination of paved and gravel road. It is passable on road bike – better suited for a gravel or mountain bike.
3) Old Nipissing Ghost Trail - The Old Nipissing Road is a ghost town trail that was once home to many settlements of hopeful pioneers but is now guarded by their abandoned log cabins and weathered barns. There are no facilities between Magnetawan and Commanda and trail conditions vary with some sections wide and well-kept; and others little more than two ruts plunging into dark woods, much as the pioneers might have experienced it. A series of historic markers are located along the route.
