Bathurst Pickleball Club

Hi from the Bathurst NB Pickleball Club

Some 5 years ago, Snowbirds Joe and Pat Flynn met with local Motel owner Bob DeGrace and convinced him to convert a seldom used tennis court to a pickleball court.

That was the birth of pickleball in Bathurst. Shortly thereafter Gerald Theriault, with the help of a few friends, made it his mission to promote the game in the area. The Group has since grown to 70+/- members.

This summer the City of Bathurst has converted an unused tennis court and we presently have 3 new pickleball courts with the potential of a 4th one on this site. We also have 2 more accessible courts within the City and of course our original and favourite spot at Danny’s Inn Restaurant & Conference Centre.

From September to May inclusively, we play inside at the Pavilion in back of City Hall. We have space for 4 courts within this complex. (Photo Included)
