Pickleball and cats? You’re probably thinking it odd for a cat sanctuary to have a pickleball court. Well, Hearts That Purr Feline Guardians is anything but ordinary! We are located in the NW part of Tucson near Tohono Chul Park on the former ranch estate of playwright Clifford Goldsmith… and we happen to have a fantastic sports court in our backyard with tennis and two pickleball courts.

Try keeping a cat out of the kitchen!

Since our cats prefer a nap to the physical activity of both tennis and pickleball, our courts are often available to supporters of our organization. When you play here you are helping senior cats who became homeless when their owner passed away or became too ill to take care of them any longer.

Our private, outdoor courts are surrounded by natural desert vegetation with beautiful views of the Catalina Mountains. Use of the court is only available by appointment. In addition, we also ask for a nominal donation, all of which goes to support our feline rescue organization (suggested donation $5-10/person per hour).

Use of the courts is at your own risk. We are not responsible for any personal/property injuries or damages suffered on the premises. (Such as a twisted ankle, like the one suffered by actor Lee Marvin while playing tennis when he lived here in 1974.)

Request an appointment with the form below or call 520-390-0879. Someone will get back to you to confirm availability.
