Changes at the ACC

There have been two changes to play at the ACC Indoor courts starting in December, 2023.

  1. New court rotation procedures when all courts are in use and others would like to play.
  2. Paid reservation option for Court 1

New Court Reservation Option

“Starting December 1st we [ACC] will allow individuals to rent one of the indoor pickleball courts for $10 an hour. The only court available for this is the court in the back left or what I would refer to as Pickleball Court #1. To reserve a court is exactly like if someone wanted to reserve a room. Contact the Athens Community Center to reserve the court and pay. This court will be usable with open play outside of rentals too (so if there are no scheduled rentals then any one can play on this court). The rental of it will just allow users to know for sure that they will have a court to play on. The rental of the court does not give free entry into the facility. Users will still have to either pay a day pass, use a punch card or use their membership to enter.”

“We will not take same day reservations as it will be too difficult for us to manage. So, a day in advance is minimum. Full payment is due at time of reservation for all requests placed. This is a flat fee that is for everyone.”

“A sign with hours the court is reserved for the day will be posted at that court within the first 30 minutes of the facility being opened.”

“When we have open pickleball time (like indicated on the monthly schedule I send out) there will still always be at least two courts open to play on and when court one is not reserved anyone can play on that as well.”

The courts are available for play when construction crews are not working. Please familiarize yourself with the outdoor court rules. The ACC Outdoor courts are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Courts cannot be scheduled (posting on Playtime is not a reservation).
