Pickleball a Hit with Islanders 55+
On Sunday, September 29th, BICR hosted a special event to encourage island folks over the age of 55 to play some pickleball! We had a great turnout, awarded some high-quality Bowen prizes, and our special guest volunteer mentors made every minute enjoyable and accessible for all of our participants. Thank you to all who attended and made this a memorable day of pickleballing!
This fun, free event was made possible thanks to a grant BICR received from the Give It A Try! program, which is dedicated to increasing community engagement and recreation programming for BC seniors. Give It A Try! is part of a collaboration between BCRPA and the BC Seniors Games Society, and is generously funded by the Province of BC and the Government of Canada.
For those who missed out and would still like to give it a try, BICR runs drop-in pickleball with Sharon Sluggett on Monday evenings from 6:30-8pm in the BICS Gym, for ages 16+. Drop in for $6.50, one Fitness Ticket, or register online for a full session here
Come join us for this great weekly program!
