The West Coast has been swept up by this courtside craze, so get your paddles ready
For anyone building their lives in their Newport Beach real estate, they’ll want to have some fun summertime activities to do. Over the past few years, one of the hottest summer trends for Orange County has been pickleball. While it’s been a popular leisure sport since 1965, it had a recent resurgence because of its fusion of badminton, tennis, and ping-pong. Also, it’s easy for all ages to learn, play, and enjoy. Altogether, that's a perfect mix to excite seniors, families, young professionals, and business people alike.
Tennis and Pickleball Club
The best club for learning and playing pickleball in Newport Beach is the Tennis and Pickleball Club. This club is close to many gorgeous luxury homes and has sprawling and permanent courts. At the club, there are over 30 pickleball courts to choose from and reserve for play. When you aren’t playing, though, the courts are near the renovated Clubhouse Grill where you can get drinks and snacks between games. The Tennis and Pickleball Club hosts events throughout the year, so feel free to get involved and have fun.
Mesa Verde Country Club
New to the pickleball craze, Mesa Verde Country Club got official pickleball courts in February of 2021 for its club members and has since held adult and children’s tournaments. For example, on May 18th, 2022, the Boys and Girls Club of Costa Mesa hosted a pickleball tournament on their grounds. All proceeds benefit the Costa Mesa Club’s programs and services. So, enjoy the courts and keep an eye out for new tournaments at the Mesa Verde Country Club.
