Adult Programs

The Town of Oakville runs a variety of adult programs including fitness, aquatics and special interest classes. For information on our registered programs check out the Parks, Recreation and Culture Program Guide or visit our interactive online registration system.

Looking for an active program for the family? The Town of Oakville offers a variety of pre-registered and drop-in activities for parents and children. Private and semi-private lessons in swimming, badminton, squash and more are also available!

Pickleball is the perfect combination for mid-week drop-in fun!

Played on a badminton-sized court with special paddles and a ball slightly smaller than a wiffle ball, pickleball is a great game for all ages and abilities. The net is set slightly lower, making it more accessible for just about anyone, while still providing a challenge for more competitive players.

Our adult drop-in pickleball programs are offered Wednesdays at:

  • Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre from 1 to 3 p.m., and
  • Glen Abbey Community Centre from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Come out and get active while you meet new people and learn a fun new sport!
