Pickleball in Huntsville, Alabama


Welcome to the Huntsville, Alabama pickleball web page. In Huntsville there are 9 indoor locations available to play pickleball up to 7 days a week (depending on season). We also have 12 new outdoor courts at the Sandra Moon Moon Community Complex that are dedicated to Pickleball. See the Locations & Times tab above. Please use the Contact Us page to leave comments, offer suggestions for new features for this site or to ask questions about pickleball. We have 443 members in the club.


If you are a true beginner and want to learn to play the game, please attend one of our true beginner clinics. The Club supplies all of the required equipment. All you need to bring is yourself and shoes that do not mar the gym floor. After learning to play the game, you are welcome to play at any of our locations. Please see the Locations & Times tab to locate the clinics for true beginners. Click Here to view a description of true beginners. You do not need to be a member of the Huntsville Pickleball Club to attend the clinics. The class is free.

If you live in the city of Huntsville or in nearby areas, after playing several weeks at one or more of our locations, we suggest that you join the Huntsville Pickleball Club and supply your own paddle.

Summer is upon us and temperatures are getting hotter!  By July, we expect things to really heat up.  So, we’ve planned a fun event for you to play and stay cool…come BEAT THE HEAT at our first Tropical Tournament on July 27, indoors at the UAH Fitness Center.  See our flyer below. Register for the tournament at www.pickleball-huntsville.com/register_beat_the_heat_tournament_2024.php

This will be a free, fun, social format, for all skill levels, like our holiday tournaments.  Be sure to note how you can earn your bonus points.  Medals awarded to top 3 players.  And we have some really cool, pickleball themed door prizes that all attendees have a chance to win.

Club members only (for liability reasons), so join or renew before you register.  Come play with old friends and meet some new ones.  If you’d just like to come watch and socialize, that’s okay, too – we’d love to see you there!

This summer, we are trying to accommodate many programs and sports at the Mark Russell Recreation Center, such as our Summer Camp program and ongoing fitness classes.  In order to do this, we are going to have to revise the Summer Pickleball schedule.  We will be removing some morning times (Mondays and Tuesdays), but we will also be adding some additional evening and specialty times.  These times are only for June 3-July 26.  Please see the details below.


Please read and follow these times and age requirements as we will be enforcing them this summer.
