MARK YOUR CALENDARS TO BE PICKLED PINK MAY 5-6
Our fundraiser, in partnership with The Breast Center, continues with The Pickled Pink Pickleball tournament Friday, May 5 and Saturday, May 6 at the Dublin Park courts in Madison. Funds raised benefit the Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund.
Registration will be $40 plus $5 per event registered and includes a nice T-shirt. Spread the word to all your pickleball friends club members and non-members. Age divisions are 18-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+ and skill levels 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5+. A round robin format will be used and all players will be guaranteed at least 4 games. Because it is a fundraiser there will be no refunds, even in the event of inclement weather. Click Here for information and to register for the tournament. In addition to tournament play, there will be Chance to Win drawings, and food vendors.
Mixed doubles will be on Friday from noon until 8 PM, women’s doubles Saturday morning from 8 AM to noon, men’s doubles from noon until 8 PM. Medals will be awarded for the top three finishers in each division and bracket. On Friday, the current plan is to start with the 70+ age bracket, then 60-69 and moving down in age brackets, trying to accommodate those who have to work during the day.
Your participation will assist patients with essential expenses during their cancer treatment. Breast cancer is one of the most expensive cancers to treat, and your participation to help raise these much needed funds is appreciated.
Please join in both as a tournament participant and volunteer (sign-ups will come out closer to the event)!
Make an impact and be PICKLED PINK!

HPC Holiday Social and Club Tournament
Where: Sandra Moon Pickleball Courts
When: December 3rd, 9 am – Noon
The Holiday season is fast approaching – time to get Holly & Jolly on the courts! Join us for our final HPC social of the year on Saturday, December 3, at the Sandra Moon outdoor courts, 9 am-Noon. We will share treats, fun times, and a festive, random draw, club tournament designed for all skill levels. Per the flyer, come in your jolliest spirit and merriest attire to increase your tourney score. Note that volunteering to help also gets you extra tourney points.
We will be collecting donations for the North Alabama Food Bank to spread good cheer in our community. Use the link below to sign up for the social/tourney and to volunteer by November 29. All members are welcome for the social, but tourney participants will be limited to the first 88 to sign up. (We are aware that this is the same day as the SEC Football Championship, but that’s not until 3PM CT – we promise to be finished well ahead of kickoff.) Let’s get ready to be the merriest picklers on the moon!

Glow in the Dark Pickleball Event
When: October 27th
Location: Trinity United Methodist Church Gym, 607 Airport Rd, Huntsville
All HPC members are invited to our first Glow in the Dark Pickleball event. See the attached flyer for details. There will be free food and indoor play on 3 neon decorated courts. PLEASE REGISTER @ THE LINK BELOW BY OCT. 20, so we know how much food to provide.
The gym may get crowded, so please refrain from bringing gym bags or bulky items. Just bring your paddle – we will even have neon tape you can use for decorating it! Make sure your name is on your paddle to make it easier to ID in the paddle pile.
If you’d like to help setup the courts or decorate the gym earlier on the day of the event, please volunteer by contacting Sandy Greene at firstname.lastname@example.org
