Are you visiting the Forgotten Coast and looking for pickleball courts in Franklin County, FL? We are excited to announce that St. George Island has joined the Pickleball craze!
Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines tennis, ping pong, and badminton and is the fastest growing sport in America. Pickleball is played in singles or doubles matches, and many larger areas around the country have pickleball leagues.
In the center of St. George Island, you’ll find a pickleball court beside the lighthouse. Courtesy of the St. George Island Civic Club’s donation, the basketball court doubles as a pickleball court. Visitors interested in playing pickleball are welcome to borrow the net, balls, and paddles free of charge from the St. George Island Visitors center. The court and equipment are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
There are other pickleball courts in our area though they offer limited access. The gated community of St. George Plantation has three new regulation standard pickleball courts. Many who rent vacation homes in the St. George Plantation will have access to these pickleball courts. However, the use of these courts is subject to the St. George Plantation amenities rules. Those interested in playing pickleball in St. George Plantation should contact the owner of their vacation rental for more information.
