Pickleball - a sport one can learn in 15 minutes, but takes a lifetime to perfect. A sport for all ages. Addictive, fun, entertaining, competitive, recreational while promoting health and camaraderie. Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in North America.
“There’s something magical about pickleball — that you can have a 18-year-old and an 75-year-old grandfather playing the same game at the same time.”

TIFFIN PARK INITIATIVE
Hello all Pickleball players,
We would like to give you an update on what is happening in our area. As you all know the popularity of our sport is exploding. MAP has conducted a number of beginners classes which has resulted in many new enthusiasts. To address this growth, MAP has approached the Town of Midland to allow expansion of the existing courts at Tiffin Park for a total of eight dedicated Pickleball courts for all levels of play.
Our request was well received by the new council of the Town of Midland.
Note received from our town's liaison:
We did actually get council to pass a capital project for the full cost of the conversion project so your fundraising contributions will no longer be necessary. Some very good news!
This is a project I would anticipate will occur near the end of the summer or early fall. There are several other priority RFPs that will be posted first but I would expect this to get out sometime in May and then the work would be scheduled sometime in the following months. Town staff will manage the project and will be sure to update you once a contractor has been secured and a timeline in place.
Excerpt in CTV news Barrie announcement:
"In its first budget cycle of this term, council undertook a rigorous review of the proposed 2023 Budget," Midland Mayor Bill Gordon said in a press release Friday. "This budget approval delivers a balanced approach between providing the necessary services to our community while keeping the tax rate as low as possible given the extraordinary economic challenges we face."
This is what the finished project looks like, the four courts on the right were completed in 2016 and the four courts on the left will be in 2023:
