Pickle ball

Well I know it's a little late in the season, but is there any public Pickle Ball courts in Penticton besides the "Private" club at the Seniors complex on South Main, where I understand that you have to be a member to play or pay for the drop in. Just asking.

Pickleball Court Etiquette
Court-use is based on first come first serve.
When people are waiting to play, court time is limited to one game.

They used to play in the community centre gym. Not sure if it was league or drop-in though

I am not a pickle ball player so am not sure but I have a recollection of pickle ball court lines being painted on some City tennis courts. Skaha Park??

Thanks to everyone for their response, but I found out that the Pickle Ball Club has public play between 1 and 5 in the afternoons, my bad. But I still wish there were public Pickle Ball courts. To answer the question on the lines that were painted on the tennis courts at Skaha and also at McLaren they were removed by the city and a very sloppy job, as the paint that was used when it was removed it left cracks on the courts, which was done about 2 years ago and still not repaired.
