If you need help with anything, send an email to info@aikenpickleball.com and someone will get back with you. 

We can help you with making and editing court reservations or adding your name to the "Looking for games" list, among other things.   What we cannot tell you is the access code.  That is for our use only.  After 8 pm Wednesday evening, the Sign-up Genius is locked down, requiring an access cod,e while the new time slots for the following week are being added.  The signupgenius is then unlocked after 8 am Thursday morning and an access code is no longer required.  But if you need help with anything else send an email to info@aikenpickleball.com and one of us will get back to you.  



The rental that will be in Gym 2 this weekend requires that mats be placed on the floors prior to the scheduled parks setup that is to begin at 1. This unfortunately means that Thursday, September 23rd there will be no indoor pickleball. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are happy to receive outdoor players here at Weeks Center and at the Eustis Park outdoor pickleball courts.  Odell will reopen for indoor pickeball on Monday at 11am.


 Looking for an opportunity to play pickleball in the evening?  Outside open play at Odell Weeks on Tuesday and Thursday is the place to be. Weather permitting, come join the group at 6pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings as the summer heat abates.  There are eight (8) courts, the lights are working and no sign up is required.
