  1. If you do a great place to play Pickleball in the Southeast we have a beautiful facility in Daytona Beach Shores Fl and we also have lots of places to visit and a beautiful ocean across the street from the courts.
    “Life is Better here” and so is our Pickleball

  2. Another great place to visit and play Pickleball in the southwest is Rio Verde, Arizona. Rio Verde is located 9 miles northeast of Scottsdale and 8 miles north of Fountain Hills, Arizona. The Rio Verde community is fantastic! The views here in the southwest are amazingly beautiful. The Fountain Hills, AZ community to the north of Rio Verde sports a Pickleball facility with 4 lighted courts and a club with over 200 members.

  3. Sun City West Arizona is the premier Pickleball Destination. With 21 individually fenced courts, and a Club with over 1000 Members, you will never be at a loss for a game. Our Fun In The Sun Tournament each March draws 800-1000 participants from all over the United States. Full lighting until 9:00 pm affords us the opportunity for year round play, even when those Arizona temperatures beat down on us.
