Pickleball in Greater Palm Springs


What do you get when you blend badminton, ping-pong and tennis with year-round warm weather, mountain views and swaying palms? A pickleball paradise. Many Greater Palm Springs hotels offer courts, clinics, and lessons for guests, while several city parks have set aside courts for public play.

Learn the basics with an IPTPA instructor at La Quinta Resort & Club, home to eight pickleball courts nestled among fragrant citrus trees and lush grounds. Rally at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, then soothe your tired muscles with a dip in the pool. Sign up for a pickleball clinic at the world-renowned Indian Wells Tennis Garden (home to the USA Pickleball National Championships). Or play with the family at Demuth Park before grabbing a bite to eat at one of the many amazing restaurants in downtown Palm Springs. 

Whether you’re a seasoned player or a beginner, you’ll discover a variety of ways to enjoy this fast-growing (and super social) game—all while soaking up the destination’s beautiful scenery and endless sun.
