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.
