As the governing and organizing body for pickleball play in the Athens area, AAPA promotes the sport as well as works with schools, community centers, and others to give back to the community. There are now more than 300 pickleball players in the Athens area. AAPA has seen a 25% increase in it’s membership this past year alone. Beginning with three indoor courts at Thomas Lay Park just four years ago, Leisure Services now provides six indoor courts, ten courts shared with tennis, and a beautiful six court pickleball only facility at Southeast Clarke Park. The university’s Ramsey Center and some local churches have also provided courts to our many pickleball enthusiasts. Athens is recognized as one of the top places in Georgia for Pickleball. Our purpose is to promote, encourage, teach, and play Pickleball in the Athens Area. Everyone is welcome!
