WE are famous! Well, sort of. Kudos to Florence for noticing this. On Google Street View when you do a search for the courts you can see us out there playing pickleball!
Some of you may remember when the Google Street View Car came around and we were trying to get shots of some of us waving. Well, they snuck in a picture of us actually playing pickleball.
To see this yourself, go to www.maps.google.com do a search for “SE 7th Ave and SE Sherman St. Albany, OR”. This will put you at the corner by the sand volleyball court.
After you click on the Street View picture you will see an interactive view. There will be some white arrows that you can click on to move you up the street (you will need to click several times) until you are about even with the courts. Then if you click and hold in the upper middle of the View and drag your cursor to the right it will move the view to the left towards the courts.
And Here You Are!!! What a good looking crew. You can directly to Albany Pickleball Club at Hackleman Park on Google:
Here is a view from the other side. You can see who the glory hounds are.
This is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity. Google probably won’t be back around to our town anytime soon.
