Harrison O'Nyons OKOTOKS Online February 21st 2023: Maybe this story will motivate some BC Ranchers to do the same thing as we need more courts everywhere?
"Lynwood Ranch in Aldersyde, known as an event space and caterer for decades, is now a dedicated pickleball facility. Those familiar with the space may see the change as an odd choice, but co-owner Gus LeDuc says it came about in a pretty organic way. 'When COVID hit, we were shut down cold, as many businesses were. We didn’t know how to restart. I played pickleball, Wendy, my wife, played pickleball, our kids did, and we started playing inside the facility because it was dormant. Then it evolved into our brothers and sisters and their kids coming over, and the neighbour's.'
Seeing some potential, having seen more and more private facilities opening in the States, and knowing the sport’s popularity in the Foothills, LeDuc and his family decided to go through with the renovations to convert the building into a pickleball facility back in November.
Though many sports facilities support a wide array of netball sports including pickleball, according to LeDuc, Lynnwood is the second dedicated pickleball facility, the other being in Edmonton."
