The Chilliwack Pickleball Club is getting ready to celebrate.
The World Pickleball Federation announced earlier this year that Oct. 10 is World Pickleball Day and the local club will be out that day showing folks what the sport is all about.
The inaugural event was launched to help spread the word about the fastest growing sport in North America.

Members of the Chilliwack Pickleball Club will be setting up a court in the parking lot of Chilliwack Alliance Church (8700 Young Rd.) from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10 to demo the sport and help educate the general public.
All COVID-19 protocols will be followed including a hand sterilization table. People are asked to wear a mask if they are attending.
The event is weather permitting.
