"It's just the destination spot for pickleball in Georgia," said President of the Georgia Pickleball Association Mark Spackman. "The community we have down here is filled with people who are so welcoming. Then there are all the great places to hangout in Macon while we are here. We had a lot of places that we went to this year and Macon was definitively our favorite destination."
The facility has hosted numerous tournaments over the last few years and people from all over the country have traveled to play at Tattnall. In 2019, Macon-Bibb County renovated the facility using about $125,000 in Special Local Options Sales Tax (SPLOST) funds. As pickleball is the fastest growing sport, 9 of the 13 tennis courts were converted to 17 pickleball courts. Since then, Tattnall Square Park has hosted more pickleball tournaments.

"We really couldn't have made this possible if it were not for the Macon Pickleball Association and our County leaders. The investment made into this facility is a win-win for everyone," said Pickleball and Tennis Manager Bobby Walker. "Players get quality courts to play on and this attracts more people to come check out what Macon-Bibb has to offer as far as restaurants, bars, shopping, and entertainment. We are so excited to have been recognized by the GPA and hoping this will bring even more people into our community."
GPA is planning to host more state tournaments this year, including the Macon Love Valentines Tournament in February, Pinkest Pickleball Party on the Planet in March, and the State Championship in November.
