The City of Bay Minette has joined the Pickleball Craze by converting an old tennis court at Kids Park into a Pickleball Court.
The redesign includes three Pickleball courts at the park, which is located at the corner of Third Street and McMillan Avenue next to the Splash Pad.
The City has also added two indoor courts at the Douglasville School of Arts & Recreation on Shedrick Hardy Parkway.

The Bay Minette Recreation Department will be holding weekly PickleBall Socials to share tips and techniques on this new game, now available in Bay Minette. The socials will be held every Monday at either indoor or outdoor courts, depending on weather conditions. There is no charge to participate.
The three outdoor Pickleball Courts are at the Community Kids Park at the corner of McMillan Avenue and Third Street. The two indoor courts are located in the gym at the Douglasville School of Arts & Recreation on Shedrick Hardy Parkway. The Rec Department offers an open gym from 5 to 8 p.m. Mondays at DSAR.
The Recreation Department also has paddles and balls for rent to help you learn the game! For more information about socials or to schedule a tournament, call the Recreation Department at 251-580-2546.
