History

Pickleball was introduced to the Mississippi Gulf Coast in 2012. We have grown from two lined tennis courts to 12 dedicated outdoor courts, 8 public lined tennis courts, and 16 indoor courts at nine venues coast wide. We have 500 players across the coast ranging in age from 10 to 90. At this rate of growth, we can realistically expect a 20% increase in number of players annually. Eighty-five of the players are veterans. A local junior high school and a junior college are offering pickleball on their physical education curriculum. Numerous Mississippi Coast players are medal winners in tournaments nationwide. We are proud of how far we have come. We welcome you to join us and experience the joy of playing pickleball.

Schedule

Pickleball Locations for Week of November 30

Westside Community Center is closed until further notice.
Long Beach Activity Center is closed until further notice.
War Memorial Park Courts are closed for repairs.

Herbert Wilson is open Tuesday & Thursday 9:00 am – noon. This is on a trial basis. Participation needs to justify the City of Gulfport paying staff overtime to open the gym just for pickleball. Evening play is not being considered at the time due to Gulfport’s youth basketball program using the gym at night. Encourage those who want to play in Gulfport to support this site. Dave Barron has volunteered to be the site coordinator.

Safety guidelines for Herbert Wilson: Masks must be worn when not on the court playing and social distancing will be required when sitting on the bleachers.

Popp’s Ferry courts were damaged during Hurricane Zeta. Please be cautious when walking near the fences that are down.
