Pickleball Courts in Bonita Springs, Naples, Estero
If you’re a buyer who enjoys the growing sport of pickleball, here is some information to help you sort through a little of the pickleball court confusion. Pickleball in the Bonita Springs area is growing in popularity. Many communities with tennis courts have pickleball courts on the tennis courts. Many of the communities are installing their own courts, space permitting. Those who do not have space find room just outside the gates. Keep in mind some of the communities in Bonita Springs were built and completed before pickleball was popular.
The MLS service that real estate listing agents use to sell homes lists community amenities. For example, it will list that a community has pickleball courts but not the number of courts. For those die hard pickleball enthusiasts it’s important to have enough courts to service the population of the community. I've been asking around and have a few great places to start your home search.

Last, you may find pickleball in several neighborhoods that may be a bundled golf community. They often have robust tennis programs/pickleball. It bears mentioning because the bundled golf is mandatory membership with golf fees typically in excess of $6,000 per year. If you do not golf it is a costly amenity for a feature you wouldn’t be using.
