Pickleball, one of the fastest-growing sports in the U.S., has taken Marco Island by storm. And now, everyone wants to hop in and start playing. However, you might ask, “Where can you play pickleball on Marco Island?”

Luckily, the Gulfstream Homes team is here to give you the answer. Here are the top picks for the best pickleball spots on Marco Island.

Marco Island Racquet Club

Marco Island’s public pickleball courts are perfect for the dedicated pickleball enthusiast. The community has seven courts which can all be lit for nighttime play. The courts are new and well-kept, making it easy for players of any skill level to hop in and play.

It’s also an all-ages center that’s open year-round, with many activities to enjoy. You can reserve courts and make reservations ahead of time. We highly suggest the Marco Island Racquet Club for the most straightforward, satisfying pickleball experience.

South Seas

South Seas is the place for you if you want Incredible views and a resort-like feel. It’s the only Marco Island pickleball community with beach access. South Seas has four pickleball courts for guests to use. Moreover, it has plenty of other amenities to make it easy to spend your entire day doing something fun, including:

  • Bike and jog paths
  • Bocce court
  • Fishing pier
  • Shuffleboard
  • Tennis Court
  • BBQ and picnic area

The resort even hosts exciting pickleball camps where you can enjoy a fully immersive experience. And of course, play lots of pickleball! We love South Seas for its stunning scenery. Starting here is always a good choice if your question is, “Where can you play pickleball on Marco Island?”

The Greater Marco Family YMCA

The YMCA of South Collier saw the need for more pickleball and delivered it to the community. They recently built nine additional pickleball courts and now boast an incredible fourteen total courts. Five are covered, while the nine recent ones aren’t, and all are lighted. The pickleball courts can be reserved, but you need a membership to play.

East Naples Community Park

Even though it’s across the bridge in Naples, this park is a must-visit for Marco Island residents and visitors. The park has a staggering 64 courts, making it far and away the most accommodating place on the list. They have organized and open play with multiple clinics for all skill levels happening daily. You can purchase an annual membership or pop by for the day. It’s open every day of the week. This spot is one of our top picks based on accessibility alone.
