This spring, there will be new recreation programming coming to the Ponoka Arena Complex.

Citizens will have the opportunity to enjoy drop-in programming for badminton, basketball, dodgeball and floor hockey.

Sandra Lund, Chief Administrative Officer talks about the new programs.

“We are excited to offerthis new programming at the Ponoka Arena Complex. The two large rink areas offer a large amount of space for badminton, basketball, dodgeball and floor hockey. Expanding programming at the Arena Complex during the spring and summer months aligns with Council’s strategic priority of improving the quality of life in Ponoka by increasing programming at our recreational facilities,”

The new drop-in programming begins Monday, April 25and will run until the end of June. Programming will then break for the Ponoka Stampede, and will resume immediately after with a new schedule being posted to the Town website at that time.

The curling rink at the Ponoka Arena Complex will be set up with two basketball hoops and two badminton courts. Dodgeball and floor hockey will be played in the small and large rink areas. Equipment will be provided to users. However, individuals can also use their own equipment.

Children under the age of eight will require direct supervision from a person 16 years of age or older. A schedule for the new drop-in programming is posted on the Town website
