Welcome Ottawa Gatineau
Pickleball Enthusiasts!  is a website I developed in support of other pickleball enthusiasts like me. It provides resources about  Ottawa Pickleball news lessons, equipment, how to get started and where to play pickleball in the National Capital region including Gatineau and Eastern Ontario.

I’m an IPTPA Level 2 Certified Teaching Professional living in Ottawa, ON, where I play pickleball and teach anyone I come in contact with about the game. I am also a local Ambassador and Learning Facilitator with Pickleball Ontario. My goal for this website is to provide local players with the resources and information they need to enjoy the game of pickleball.
