(Writing this post a little after the fact to document the efforts that went into the court renovations.)
Between July 7 and August 17, the Albany Pickleball Club members spent many hours power washing, patching, painting and setting nets and posts on the South half of the court at Hackleman Park. This was Phase 1 in our renovation of the tennis court into 4 permanent pickleball courts. The City of Albany provided the patching and painting materials and one set of net/posts for the project. The Club purchased one set of net/posts and provided all the labor to get the work done.
Please see our Phase 1 court work pictures in the Galleries.
This was a huge amount of work by the Club and everyone came together to get the job done. As per our agreement with the City, the proceeds from the Rally In The Valley Tournament were used as well to purchase needed supplies and materials.
The project would not have been possible without help from our generous donors. Their donations to the tournament and/or court work allowed us to put on a very successful tournament and use the proceeds to further our renovations on the court.
