ABQ Pickleball Club is a group of (mostly) seniors playing pickleball at various locations around Albuquerque and surrounding areas. Our goals are to be welcoming to all levels of players, promote and publicize pickleball, encourage the development of new facilities, retain and expand the use of current facilities, provide the necessary equipment, encourage new players to learn and participate (via open houses, learning nets, etc.), increase club activities (leagues, fun tournaments, etc.), and run tournaments. The Club is operated as an affiliate of the New Mexico Senior Sports Foundation, a Non-Profit (501 (c)3) corporation. Where revenues exceed expenses, the net gain shall be used to foster continued Club growth and activity.

We continue to be a “bottom-up” organization, meaning the 16 venues we have coordinated with the help of the city are headed up by the venue coordinators elected from the venue pickleballers. All pickleball players (unless they opt out) are considered to be members of the club with the venue coordinators serving as the Managing Council. The Managing Council elects an Executive Team which can be removed by the council at any time. The interim Executive Team consists of: President – Bob Ashmore, Vice President – Gopal Rao, Secretary – Dale Reynolds, Treasurer – Gretchen Denman, Community Outreach – Gary Rutherford.
