Grab your paddles, lace up and join us on May 5th, 2024, as we host the second annual Ottawa Pickleball Classic in support of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation (UOHIF). It just so happens to fall on Cinco de Mayo, a celebration that highlights Mexican cuisine, culture, and music so there will be lots to celebrate.


This year’s event will be hosted at the spacious, historic, and light-filled Aberdeen Pavilion located in beautiful Lansdowne Park. Players of all skill levels are encouraged to take to the courts in a friendly tournament. Play from your heart, for your heart's health, in a supportive, social, and fun atmosphere. 


The top fundraiser(s) and best-dressed teams will have the chance to win amazing prizes. That's right. Dig out those costumes! Enjoy a light lunch before playing, and snacks and beverages will be offered throughout the afternoon. Plus, stick around for our ‘can't-miss’ post-tournament reception to revel in the day's gameplay. It is sure to be a tournament filled with fun and laughter.


With your support of special events like this, the Foundation raises funds that power innovative patient care, ground-breaking research, state-of-the-art equipment, cardiovascular prevention & rehabilitation patient programs, and education.


We encourage you to share your excitement and fundraise with friends and family. If your team raises $1,000+ we will refund your $200 registration fee, or you can even donate the money back to the Heart Institute Foundation!
