Your questions answered.

What is Fairgrounds all about?

We’re a public club that connects people with quality facilities & events. Unlike other clubs, you no longer have to commit to a league for a whole season long or pay an annual membership to be part of a vibrant community to get a rally or match going whenever you want it.

Is there a membership fee?

No! Membership is free. We want everyone to enjoy gameplay and get moving together through a shared love of racket sports and community.

Is the 2400 Yonge Street location still open?

After an amazing 2022 season, this pop-up location is now closed and will not be re-opening.

What Fairgrounds locations are currently open?

Our Stackt Market location is now open for the summer Tuesday-Sunday, 12-9 pm. Stay tuned for more information on future locations and other potential pop-ups!

What are the Tuesday Socials and how can I register?

Our socials are every Tuesday night (pending weather) and run from 4-8 pm. Reservations are free for members, and we’ll be capping gameplay at the first 24 people to ensure everyone gets a hit. Register by logging into Court Reserve and going to the “Events” tab.

Are you going to be opening up more locations?

Yes, eventually! We’re working hard on lining up more courts within the Toronto downtown area & broader GTA. Once we have more information & firm dates, you’ll be the first to know.

Can I book in advance?

Yes! Court time can be booked up to one week in advance by signing up as a member and booking a court here.

Can I just walk in and play?

You may be able to, but we highly recommend booking in advance. Walk-in court time is subject to availability, and we cannot guarantee access.

What’s the price to play?

We like to keep it simple, and most importantly, affordable. Open play is $10 per person, per booking.

Are rental paddles available? 

You are welcome to bring your own, but we have you covered if you arrive sans paddle. Rental paddles are available for $5 (and balls are included with your booking!)

Is there an age restriction?

Our club is all ages. Whether you want to entertain your kids on a sunny day or looking for a place to get dinking (pun intended) with your 19+ pals, Fairgrounds doesn’t discriminate on age - the more variety, the better!

Can I book lessons or clinics?

Right now we’re not offering lessons or clinics at Stackt Market, but that will change when additional locations + more courts are available.

What do I wear?

No dress code. Comfortable, athletic clothing and court sneakers are encouraged. Personal flair is optional but always appreciated.

I want to play, but I don’t know any pickleball rules

No problem! Our team is happy to teach you the basics of pickleball when you arrive or learn more about the rules of gameplay on our blog.

What is DUPR?

Dynamic Universal Pickleball Rating is the most accurate and only global rating system in Pickleball. All players, regardless of their age, gender, location, or skill, are rated on the same scale between 2.000-8.000 based on their match results. Learn more on the DUPR website.

I’ve never played pickleball, should I still join or book a court?

Absolutely! Pickleball is for everyone and is easy to pick up, most people can learn within ~20 minutes and there’s always someone around to help if you have questions.

Do you partner with brands?

We’re on a mission to make racket sports more accessible, fun, and community-driven & have a highly engaged member base. Let us know how we can partner for your next activation by visiting our partner page or emailing us at

I have a question that isn’t listed. Is there someone I can speak to?

Of course! Email our team at and we'll help you with whatever you need.
