We currently have 6 permanent pickleball courts on the western end of the court complex at Higgs Beach, right across the street from the Casa Marina Hotel. There is a parking area right beside the courts which usually has empty spaces. There is alternative parking across Atlantic Ave. at the beach lot next to Salute Restaurant, and on the street beside the Casa Marina Hotel.
We have Key West Pickleball Club open play on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday year round and during high season (Dec, Jan, Feb) we play every day. If a club member is present we will provide balls and loaner paddles as needed. Please return the loaner paddles to the lock box when you are finished using them. There is also a bulletin board next to the courts which has current information about Club events or other upcoming activities. We often play Happy Hour pickleball on Friday afternoons from 3pm till the sun sets.
We usually arrive for open play at 8:30 AM. The format is doubles games to 11, win by 2. We play as long as people are there to play. Of course, if you have your own paddles and balls, the courts are open all other times for anyone to play - during daylight hours, since there are no lights. There is never a charge to play since the facility is operated and maintained by the Monroe County Parks and Recreation Department. There is a donation box out during Club open play to defray the costs of equipment and other facilities proided by the Club.
Rules to promote equal play are posted on the paddle boxes on the fence.
Feel free join us for the open play sessions - it's a congenial and welcoming group. If you are traveling to Key West on vacation and have a limited schedule, post something on the Key West Pickleball Facebook page (also linked from the “f” button at the top of each page of this site) to let people know you’re going to be there!
