Join America's Fastest Growing Sport by Playing Pickleball at Boca Grove.

Our Pickleball Court is perfect for all ages!

Joining the trend that is sweeping the nation, in the Summer of 2017 Boca Grove added five lighted pickleball courts to our tennis facilities. The sport is perfect for any athletic ability and any age. Pickleball combines the sport of tennis, badminton and wiffle ball allowing for a wide range of participation. The courts are smaller than tennis courts and can allow the competitive spirit to cover more ground in less time.

Join us for clinics, tournaments and so much more at your Pickleball Court.  
Call (561) 487-7070 to learn more about clinics and private lessons.

*Please be reminded in order to use the Pickleball Court you must register in the Tennis Center prior to play.
