USA Pickleball Association Ambassador Bob VanderLinden gave some of the history of the sport of pickleball and the evolution of pickleball in Albany.

 

 

 

New players flooded the courts to try pickleball for the first time with mentors from the club.  Pizza and deserts were served following the ceremony.

The Albany Pickleball Club and the City of Albany have developed a successful long term relationship which has resulted in conversion of the under-utilized tennis court at Eleanor Hackleman Park into 4 dedicated pickleball courts in 2012 and the current resurfacing project to deal with cracks and old court issues.

We want to thank the offices of Edward Jones for their fantastic support and the city of Albany for the past and present relationship that provides needed facilities for the fastest growing sport in the country.

As we look forward, we know that the 4 courts at Hackleman are already at the limits of play and we are looking at strategic liaisons with the city and businesses for future court locations that will accommodate the explosive growth of pickleball in Albany.
