Albany Pickleball Courts: Hacklman Pickleball Courts & Albany Boys & Girls Club
From day 1 we have had a great relationship with the City of Albany to promote and grow pickleball. Together we selected the little used tennis court at Eleanor Hackleman Park as a suitable venue for our pickleball play with the long term goal of enhancing and renovating the court into 4 pickleball courts. In 2012, the City invested in court patching and painting materials and members of the Club provided the “love and labor”, bought one set of posts/net and the proceeds from the Rally In The Valley tournament were used to renovate the courts. The collaboration between the City and the Club has developed 4 permanent courts in Albany that we can all be proud of.
July/August, 2012: Hackleman Court Renovation Phase 1. Power washed the entire tennis court surface, patched cracks and divots, painted the south half of the court, painted lines and installed permanent nets and posts. The courts were finished just before the tournament.
August 24-26, 2012: Our 1st Rally In The Valley Pickleball Tournament at West Albany High School.
October 2012: Hackleman Court Renovation Phase 2. Patched and resurfaced the north half of the court, painted the courts and painted lines. Permanent nets and posts, although purchased, will not be installed until spring of 2013 as we will be moving indoors soon.
