Two growing sports could be on their way to Radium Hot Springs.
At the request of Radium seniors, the village council has agreed to paint lines for a pickle ball court on the cement pad at the outdoor skating rink. The game is described as a “cross between badminton and tennis.”
Another group of local athletes, meanwhile, are exploring the possibility of installing a disc golf course in the Sinclair Creek area. Disc or frisbee golf is typically played in wilderness areas by throwing a disk at a chain basket or similar temporary structure.
While no official steps have been taken at this time, village CAO Mark Read said the disc golfers may look at partnering with Rotary or another local service group for the project. Sinclair Creek is already the site of some informal disc golfing, as is Invermere’s Pothole Park.
