Places To Play Pickleball in Albany, Oregon

SUMMER ORGANIZED CLUB PLAY BEGINS MAY 1, 2021 AT THE HACKLEMAN PICKLEBALL COURTS

The Albany Pickleball Club will resume our reserved summer pickleball play schedule for members at the Hackleman Pickleball Courts. Non-members are always welcome with a $3 drop-in fee. 
 
Club reserved play times through the City of Albany are:
–  Mon/Wed/Fri 9 AM to 12 PM,
– Tuesday evenings 5-8 PM ,
– Friday 5-8 PM, Advanced play
– Sunday – 2 to 5 PM
 
For organized play times, members will receive the code to the lockbox on the net to access the back room of the restrooms to get balls, the AED, the first aid kit and sanitizing materials. Please remember to return all items, lock up the store room and return the key to the lockbox.
 
Again this year the APC and City will provide a locked portable toilet for members. The combination will be BUCK. There will also be an open public portable toilet until the restrooms open.
 
Please use the player rotation system and paddle box to provide fair play times during reserved play.  
The club will be emailing more information out to our mailing list.
 
Playtime Scheduler (www.playtimescheduler.com) has become the scheduler (but not a reservation system!) of choice for most folks over the winter. We have entered our reserve play times on the scheduler to help avoid double scheduling. Playtime Scheduler continues to be a good tool for people wanting to schedule play outside of reserved club play times.

6 Pickleball Venues!

We are lucky to have six pickleball venues in Albany, OR and the surrounding area.  The long anticipated opening of 8 new dedicated courts and 4 temporary courts at LBCC, which should come on line the spring of 2021, if COVID restrictions allow.  (See our blog for posts about status of the new courts) 

The Hackleman Pickleball Courts will remain an option for play after the new Albany/LBCC Courts are opened although we don’t know the level of maintenance for these older courts.

In the past we used the Albany Boys and Girls Club in the winter but due to COVID the that facility has not been available. The Board has worked with the Albany Tennis Club to get scheduled play during the winter. Many people played outdoors all winter due to Covid. There is also play at the G3 Athletic Club in Corvallis and Timberhill Athletic Club.  The YMCA also has pickleball play.

Albany YMCA, 3201 Pacific Blvd. SW, (541) 926-4488
$15 per one drop-in play.  This cost is primarily due to limitations in the security capabilities at the YMCA at this time.  They are unable to limit the movement between venues at the club so they need to charge this level to ensure that they are compensated for any and all potential usage of their club.
