Pickleball

Destination Pickleball Artwork

The Opelika Sportsplex is home to a 12-court, state-of-the-art pickleball pavilion. The pavilion features LED lighting and regulation courts for tournament-style play that is free and open to the public for 24-7 use. 

This facility is one of the premier pickleball facilities in the nation, offering thoughtful amenities that are not often found at other tournaments. All 12 courts are individually fenced allowing for tournament-style play, and the entire facility is covered by a large canopy, providing protection from the elements and shade. The facility is situated directly behind the Opelika SportsPlex, which gives players access to ample parking, bathrooms, lockers, showers, and concessions. 

The pickleball pavilion is also home to the Opelika Pickleball Club, a local pickleball organization that’s purpose is to promote the sport of pickleball in the community through membership, sponsorship, and tournaments; to actively give back to the community through a partnership with the city of Opelika.  

Pickleball combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong, and because it is played on a smaller court and uses a slower moving plastic ball with holes, pickleball can accommodate players of all ages and skill levels. Although it is easy to learn, pickleball can develop into a fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.
