Grimsby Pickleball Association was created in 2022 by a group of avid pickleball players working alongside the Town of Grimsby to support growth of Pickleball in the area. Starting from playing in an outdoor ice pad marked with two courts, play has grown to attract many new and experienced pickleball players. In the summer of 2022, the Town of Grimsby constructed 4 new pickleball courts at Mayfield Park and opened play to both non-member and GPA members.
To be nationally recognized as a welcoming club with extensive programs for social and competitive play for all ages and skill levels.
Our mission is to promote the sport of pickleball for all ages and skill levels. To foster an inclusive organization that encourages learning, improvement and fair play in a fun and welcoming atmosphere.
