Thanks to a grant from Town of Bancroft council, the Bancroft Curling Club now has a court and equipment. It will be running in a few weeks. The courts will be open every Tuesday from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. every Tuesday.
The club put on a demonstration last week, with Randy and Marlene Elliott, Ontario pickleball mixed doubles champions. The rules and the style of play were demonstrated before an enthusiastic crowd.
Club chairman John Vanderpas said that about 70 people have already indicated their interest in writing.
Dear fellow curling and Pickleball friends,
We realize that the 3rd draw for the curling season is just getting underway, but we are starting to look forward to the Pickleball season for this coming spring/summer.
Our first year was a great success and we are hoping to increase the participation from both our curling club members as well as the community.
We are looking for volunteers to sign up for the committee or help with the organization of this league.
Looking forward to another great season of Pickleball and meeting new friends.
John and Mary Vanderpas
