Pickleball is a tremendous success for Cedarbrae, the Centre is known as a great venue for the sport. There are over 330 regular participants engaged in beginner, intermediate and novice level of play and we have over 70 new Cedarbrae Members involved with the Centre.
Calgary South West United held their “Coaches Appreciation” event on April 22 at the Centre utilizing every corner of the Facility and the adjacent soccer fields. The event was very well attend by Coaches and U4 through U10 groups.
Our current proposed project work for 2017 is well underway at the Centre starting with the South Patio Project slated for an early June start. The gym floor sanding and resurfacing is completed and looks great, stop by and check it out! The Centre exterior painting should be underway completing a fresh look for the hub of Cedarbrae. Maintenance work is completed on the Centres lower and upper kitchen cupboards and drawers making them operate safely and look more inviting to potential renters. The Centres marmoleum floors are all waxed and burnished, they look great, so shiny! Now that the ice rink is dormant for summer, its great to welcome the Gardeners back, so many stories and ways to plant and cultivate great vegetable gardens.
