I just joined Pickleball Hamilton. Now what?

Now it's time to play! You will also receive an email from CourtReserve shortly to set up your profile to be able to book your sessions. Sign up for a session and come on out!  Check out our Booking Play page to see how.

I don't have balls or a paddle. Do I need to get any?

We do not supply paddles or balls.

We have a few spare paddles available for guests during the summer season. Please make sure they are put back after use.  If you are looking to purchase a paddle, please reach out on Signal and we have several different reps that can help you out!  We now have a Buy & Sell signal group where you might find someone with a paddle to sell.

Purchasing Balls

We’re thankful to have Cheryl Weldon volunteer to sell the balls again this year.  

*You need to have a credit card on file with CourtReserve to purchase balls.  See how here.

Pricing can be found on CourtReserve under How Do I -> Purchase Balls.

Please contact Cheryl on Signal or at

Playing Format

When can we play at Hill Park?

For our courts at Hill Park, our licensing agreement states we are only allowed to play between 8:00am and 10:00pm.

Please respect these times.

What does a typical session look like?

We require a facilitator in order to run a session. For summer, they'll unlock the gate to let members in. Members can play for the full 1 hr 50 mins of the session. Summer is usually a cap of 16 for 3 courts. Sessions end at 10 to the hour to allow transition time before the next session.

For Level and Open Play :   The designated facilitator for the session will run the session usually using an application that mixes members. 

For BYOG Play:  See the booking faq page.

What ball do I use?

The Club currently supplies an Onix fuse for indoor play and the Franklin X40 for Outdoor play.

You may of course purchase whatever ball you are comfortable with.  Just choose the Indoor or Outdoor type depending on your playing location.

Anything else I need to know about sessions?

For Hill Park, the six new courts (7-12) only has a few chairs, so please bring a chair if you want make sure you have a place to sit. 

We have bins at Hill Park in the court 7-12 area that contains our AED and First-Aid Kits. It also contains extra water, paddles.  Our lost and found bin can be found on the old court side.

We have rented portable toilets which are located outside of our courts.

Please bring plenty of water as the Recreational Centre may not be open for you to refill.

Other Member FAQ's

What is the best way to stay informed of club news and upcoming events?

We will send out email blasts to our members as well as post on our Signal group. We'll also do our best to update upcoming events on our website. And of course, word of mouth at the courts spreads the message the best!

You can also see past editions of our older Newsletters on our webpage and our newer ones are available by selecting the NEWS tab on your CR dashboard

How else can I be involved?

In terms of more play, we have interclub events, special pickleball/social events and more! We will send communications out to keep our members informed of upcoming events!

If you are interested in volunteering, please see below.

I'd like to volunteer. What is there to do?

We'd love your help! We have committees that you can join, you can volunteer to help out by being a facilitator, the list goes on...There are countless tasks and I'm sure that we can find a perfect fit for your skills and preferences! Please approach a board member or fill out the form on the Volunteers page. We are a volunteer-run organization so the club cannot run without volunteers like you!
