Pickleball is one of–if not the–fastest growing sports in America. It’s becoming more and more part of the national conversation, whether that be in water-cooler conversations, podcast episodes, or across our timelines that we’re endlessly glued to.
You might also see this sport referred to as “paddle tennis”, by the way, so if you’re looking for that, this list will also apply to you.
This article will dive into a list of pickleball courts that you’ll be able to play in the overall greater LA area.
22360 Devonshire St., Chatsworth, CA 91311
The Chatsworth Recreation enter has 2 dedicated pickleball courts and 2 hybrid courts (in which you have to provide your own nets). The courts are lighted, which is nice.
Courts are also open from 8 A.M. to 10 P.M. here.
As far as we know, no fees are necessary here, but that could change.
4935 Balboa Blvd., Encino, CA 91316
The Encino Recreation Center has 4 hybrid courts–sharing with tennis. Thus, you’ll have to bring your own nets. The courts here are lit and are open from 8 A.M. to 10 P.M.
As far as we know, this should be free, but that could be flexible with time.
16730 Chatsworth St., Granada Hills, CA 91344
This set of courts is at Granada Hills Recreation Center. It’s also at Petit Park, so navigating to either will bring you here.
At this location, there are 4 dedicated courts just for pickleball. The courts are lighted on weekdays (Monday through Friday) until 9 P.M.
Otherwise, though, the courts are just plain open from 8 A.M. to sunset.
These should be free.
4545 Homer St., Los Angeles, CA 90031
At the Montecito Heights Recreation Center is this set of 2 dedicated courts.
Pretty simple here: they’re open from dawn to dusk, or sunrise to sunset.
These should also be free.
1800 Ocean Front Walk, Venice, CA 90291
These are probably the most famous pickleball courts in the greater Los Angeles area.
The courts for pickleball are courts 6, 7, 10, and 11.
The interesting thing here is that you should bring tape–like electrical tape–to modify the lines on the courts to fit pickleball dimensions.
These are open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 A.M. to sunset. The courts won’t be lit past that.
These should be free.
Westchester, Los Angeles
7000 W. Manchester Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90045
In Westchester by LAX are the Westchester Tennis and Pickleball Courts, which are outdoors. This one will cost $12 an hour and is open from 5 P.M. to 8 P.M. from Monday to Friday and from 8 A.M. to 7 P.M. on Saturdays and Sundays.
It has eight hybrid courts (sharing with tennis) located at courts 7 and 8. The courts here are lit until closing.
5858 Shoup Ave., Woodland Hills, CA 91367
