Pickleball is played across the country and around the world, including on St. Simons Island. It is a great sport to take with you; just pack your paddle and meet up with other groups.

St. Simons Island Pickleball is open play for beginners to advanced players. Our players are part time residents, winter guests, vacationers, coastal area groups and locals. Some Kingsland players traveled to St. Simons Island for pickleball and lunch on Saturdays.

Matches begin at 9 a.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays in Kings Park on Mallery Street.
