Albany Pickleball Club Membership Benefits

The Albany Pickleball Club (APC) promotes growing pickleball in Albany. Meet a great group of people, make new friends and enjoy pickleball at all levels! 

Organizing as a club (since 2012) and membership dues has allowed us to partner with the Albany City Parks and Recreation Department to provide outdoor courts for play at Eleanor Hackleman Park and indoor courts at the Albany Boys and Girls Club.  It has also enabled us to negotiate exclusive use time for club members so we ensure the courts are available for our scheduled activities. 

APC has lobbied the city for years to get new dedicated courts and 8-12 new courts which will be constructed at LBCC with exclusive use times for APC  members.

Membership dues are due in October of each year and are $20. Hackleman Pickleball Court drop-in fee is $3 for non-members.  For summer of 2019, when you pay dues your membership will be good till October of 2020!
