Recreation

Delisle, with an official census population of 975 people, is located 40 kms. southwest of Saskatoon on Highway 7. The Delisle & District Recreation Association, which serves the Town of Delisle and surrounding area, is in charge of recreational facilities and programs. A full time leisure services director is employed to ensure that there are ample programs for young and old alike.

The Delisle Centennial Arena, home of Delisle Bruins hockey, is a steel building structure with artificial ice and four large dressing rooms. Hockey programs offered include senior and recreational, women's and minor hockey. The PeeWee, Bantam and Midget age groups play in the Saskatoon Minor Hockey Association. Junior B hockey returned to Delisle in the fall of 2008 with the new Delisle Chiefs hockey team. Outside booking of the skating ice for tournaments, games or practices is welcome. Contact the Leisure Services Director at (306) 493-8283 to rent the ice or check out the ice schedule yourself at www.delislecentennialarena.com.

The Delisle Curling Rink, home of past provincial women's champions Sherry Anderson and her rink, is also a steel building structure with 3 sheets of artificial ice and a lounge upstairs. Curling is offered for all age groups and a number of bonspiels are held throughout the winter. The facility can also be rented for private functions and bonspiels. Contact Rod Worth at (306) 493-2505 for details.

The Delisle Town Hall is available for bookings for weddings, anniversaries, meetings or whatever your needs. For smaller meetings or functions, the Lodge Room of the Town Hall may be more suitable. If you are planning a larger summer event, the Curling Rink or the main Arena can be booked to host your function. Delisle has had many old time rock and roll cabarets in the arena including the bands Trooper, Prism, Harlequin and Honeymoon Suite. The Figure Skating Club craft sale is another event held every fall in the curling rink. To book the Town Hall or Lodge Room, contact the Town Office at (306) 493-2242. To book the Curling Rink or Arena for a summer function, contact the Leisure Services Director at (306) 493-8283.

Delisle also has a ball park containing four diamonds if you are interested in booking a tournament or practice. There are booth facilities and RV parking with electrical plug-ins nearby that would complement the hosting of a tournament. To book the ball diamonds, contact the Leisure Services Director at (306) 493-8283.

The Delisle Golf Course is the newest jewel of our recreational facilities. Opened in 2002, this 9 hole, grass green golf course utilizes the natural rolling terrain of the valley on the north end of town. The wide fairways on rolling hills, large greens, water pond and mature tree plantings make this course attractive as well as challenging for golfers of all age or caliber. Two tee boxes offer 2879 and 3109 yardage with the course being a par 35. The clubhouse, located beside the paved parking lot by the arena, has beverage service as well as power cart and club rentals. There is ample space for RV's and small town shopping is available only a couple of blocks away. In only a few years of operation, the Delisle Golf Course has already received rave reviews. To book a round of golf or a tournament, phone the clubhouse at (306) 493-3288 or visit their website at www.delislegolf.com. Credit Cards are accepted.

Delisle has two children's playgrounds. A newly constructed playground for pre-school age children is conveniently located in the downtown core. For the older children, the playground at the Elementary School has been modernized to entertain the youngsters. Delisle also has an established Co-operative Playschool program for 3 and 4 year olds. These tots are given an opportunity to interact in a supervised and professional setting. As well, the Recreation Association offers a playground program to entertain the youngsters during the summer months.

A tennis court can be found on the west side of the schoolyard. The tennis court is also used for skateboarding. Three cement ramps are provided for skateboarding enthusiasts.

Archery is a very prominent sport in Delisle. The Delisle Archery Association has a building at 302 - 1st Street West where archery competition or practice can take place indoors. The Archery Association also has an outdoor range east of Delisle. To find out more information or to become a member, contact Mr. Darrell Richmond at 306-493-2314.
