Did you know there are 5 pickle ball courts in Silver Springs Community?
They are located at the south end of the Botanical Gardens and is a shared City facility with the Tennis Courts. If you are looking for parking, go east one block on Silver Springs Drive and there is a parking lot on the right side. You must cross the soccer field to get to the courts.
Now that you know where the courts are who is eligible to use these courts? The courts are for public use 7 day a week. You are welcome to bring your own net but if you don’t own one we can help. Go to silverspringscommunity.ca and purchase a family or Seniors Silver Springs Membership. The office can provide you with a code to the lock box that contains 2-3 nets at the courts. The code changes every year so you will have to renew your membership to receive the new code and this is also how we know who is using the nets so please don’t share the code with your neighbors and friends. You will have to supply your own balls as the ones in the box keep disappearing. Please make sure the key and lock box are secure when you leave the courts . The City of Calgary has posted a sign for the use of the tennis and pickle ball courts. The City have set a 30 minute time limit so that everyone gets a chance to use the courts. If a patron has booked the courts they must show you a permit for that day and time and will not have to follow the 30 minute rule. This is a great game so please show common courtesy to all users and enjoy the season.
