Where To Play

There are three public parks with pickleball courts on the Monterey Peninsula.  MBPC plays regularly at Via Paraiso Park.  Non-club pickup play can be found regularly at the other two parks.  Additionally, indoor pickleball is available for a daily use fee at the Monterey Sports Center.  Information on each location is detailed below.

MBPC practices Open Play.  Open play means everyone plays with everyone and rotates in and out equally.  The better players can use the opportunity to practice certain shots while helping the other players improve their game.

MBPC welcomes everyone from advanced players to those who have never played before.  We welcome locals as well as those vacationing on the Monterey Peninsula.  There is no fee for play, just show up and have fun!
