HPC “Beat the Heat” Tropical Tournament – July 27

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!

Register for the Labor Day Shootout


The Huntsville/Madison County Visitors Bureau is sponsoring the Sept 2-4 Labor Day Shootout Tournament being held indoors at the Athletic Club of Alabama. The Club is assisting with volunteers.

We are extremely fortunate to have many places to play pickleball and it’s free. This is because the City and County have been tremendous supporters of the game. In other cities where public facilities are not available, it may cost as much as $40/hour for a court. It is imperative that we and our pickleball player friends and family return this support by not only registering for this event but encouraging them, near and far, to register.  Please do not wait until the last minute to register.

Visit Second Annual Huntsville.org Labor Day Shootout (pickleballbrackets.com) and register.

If you have any issues in getting registered, please contact Joel Lamp, Huntsville/Madison County Visitors & Conventions Bureau, at JLamp@huntsville.org. The sponsors want to know so that the process can be streamlined.

See you at the Shootout!

Pickled Pink May 5-6

 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.

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.
