Learn to Play

Although our “Places to Play” page provides a detailed list of every known venue in Nova Scotia that offers Pickleball sessions, this page is dedicated to only listing the venues offering some kind of “Learn to Play” instructional session. With almost every venue, you will need to register in advance to take part and upon arrival, you can learn most of the basic rules of Pickleball and be shown how to play by one of the many volunteers.

Please be aware that we rely on the contributions of our members so if you know of any additional venues where there is a regularly scheduled “learn to play” session and it’s not yet listed here, please use the contact us form on this site to pass along the details of the venue and the times the sessions are offered.
