Apollo Pickleball Open House & Play for Western Cup: LEARN TO PLAY!

April 8, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm


The Western Cup family is expanding, and we’d like to invite you to join us in the fun! If you’ve been looking for a brand new, exciting, inclusive, and accessible sport to pick up, now’s your chance: that sport is Pickleball!

Join us at Le Roi Daniels School (47 Fyffe Rd SE, Calgary, AB T2H 1B9) for an Apollo Pickleball Open House & Play on April 8 from 11:30 am—2:00pm. All are welcome!

Three courts will be dedicated to beginners and new/nervous players! If you’re new – you belong with us. For brand new players, mentors Reinette & Elmar Otte will be on one court to introduce brand new players to some basics and get them playing.

Two courts will be for people who are new to the game and nervous about joining open play. On the other three courts, people will be in the game, open play style. It’s the perfect way to meet new people and come together in a very social sport. Put on your court shoes and gym attire and come to a fun afternoon before the Western Cup evening festivities begin.

A brand-new organization under the Apollo umbrella that started up in 2023, Apollo Pickleball is passionate about fostering safe spaces for the 2SLGBTQ+ community and creating resilient and healthy communities that embrace movement, play, inclusivity, and kindness.
