Join the fastest growing new sport in America! This low-impact game combines elements of tennis, table tennis, and badminton. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a whiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis (with a few modifications).
Come join us on Tuesday, Thursday and Sundays.
Can’t make it during the week or on Sundays? Let us know! We want as many people as possible to enjoy this fun sport. Email Jarvis Jones when you would like Pickleball times to be.
The best way to get involved playing pickleball at Trussville Y is to contact Jarvis. Jarvis will give you detailed program info and set up a personal “Pickleball Orientation” to determine your playing level and help you find the program or activity that is best for you. Please contact Jarvis at 205-655-2224
A pickleball court is the same size as a doubles badminton court and measures 20×44 feet. In pickleball, the same court is used for both singles and doubles play. The net height is 36 inches at the sidelines and 34 inches in the middle. The court is striped similar to a tennis court with right and left service courts and a 7-foot non-volley zone in front of the net (referred to as the “kitchen”). Courts can be constructed specifically for pickleball or they can be converted using existing tennis or badminton courts. – Read complete details on the court dimensions
TENNIS LESSON RATES
Shelley Wirt began her employment in December 2016 at the YMCA of Greater Birmingham Trussville as the Director of Tennis. She will be responsible for developing, maintaining and promoting all tennis programs to include leagues, round robins, clinics, mixers, camps for adults and youth and overall junior development.
Shelley received an academic/tennis scholarship to Birmingham-Southern College and went on to finish her BS at The University of Alabama with a degree in Human Environmental Sciences.
Shelley began her professional career at Pine Tree Country Club where she honed her skills as a teaching professional under the tutelage of Jimmy Weinacker through 2010. She was then on to the Trussville Racquet Club where she resided as Head Tennis Professional until her tenure began at the Y.
Shelley brings experience, professionalism, and excitement to our tennis program and looks forward to serving, and growing, the program and meeting the needs of all individuals.
My name is Nate Pagel. I grew up in a small town in southwest Michigan on an apple farm. I graduated from Ferris State University with a degree in Professional Tennis Management in December of 2017. During my college career, I taught tennis on internships in Chicago, New York City, and Hilton Head Island. I am both USPTA and PTR certified, and I am also a certified Master Racquet Technician. I have had the privileged to string for a tournament featuring the top 16 ranked men's collegiate teams in the country and have even strung racquets for a former Wimbledon semifinalist. Currently I also work as the Associate Director of the United States Racquet Stringer's Association and a Contributing Editor to Tennis Industry Magazine. At my high school I hold records for most 6-0 sets won, most 6-0, 6-0 matches won, and most doubles wins in a season, and am a member of the 100 mph club. In fact, I have been known to serve upwards of 120 mph on occasion. On my club tennis team in college, I have recorded wins over schools such as the University of Michigan, Ohio State University, the University of Wisconsin, Indiana University, and the University of Georgia. Outside of tennis, I have competed on my college’s club volleyball team, I won the only waterski tournament I have ever entered, and I am an avid pickleball and spikeball player.
My name is Danielle Boggis. I was born in Wyoming but grew up in Nevada. My first love growing up was golf. After college I worked in the golf business as a club professional and instructor at a public course in Nevada where I became a member of the PGA of America in 1997 until I resigned in 2005.
I moved to Trussville, Al. in 2002, and I decided to sign up for beginning adult tennis lessons, mostly for the exercise and to meet people. After the first lesson I was hooked!!! I signed up for woman’s leagues and started playing all around Birmingham. I joined the YMCA and after a few years was asked if I would like to help with the kids tennis program. I accepted and was hired on part time in 2010. During that time I have become a certified USTPA instructor and teach kids and beginning adult lessons.
I still enjoy golf, but I love the game of tennis and the fact that a person can be competitive or just have fun and get some great exercise. The best part of my tennis experience has been meeting wonderful people and making some fantastic friends.
