City of Boynton Beach Serving Up Pickleball Courts Grand Opening Event

The City of Boynton Beach is hosting a Pickleball Courts Grand Opening Event to mark the opening of the six permanent pickleball courts newly installed at the Boynton Beach Tennis Center (3111 S. Congress Ave.).  This free, family-friendly event will be held from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on Saturday, February 4, and will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony, an exhibition match between Boynton Beach City Commission members and the City Manager’s team, two half-hour pickleball clinics (for both beginner and advanced players) led by FM Tennis, refreshments, music provided by Digital Vibes DJ and more. Free commemorative City of Boynton Beach sports towels will be provided to the first 50 attendees (one per family).

The beginners’ clinic, for those new to, or still learning the sport, will begin at 11:00 am, while the advanced clinic, for more experienced players, will begin at 11:30 am. Both clinics are free; on site pre-registration is required and is limited to the first 24 individuals who sign up for each clinic. Participants are encouraged to bring their own paddles, though a limited amount of adult sized paddles will be available for public use.

Beginning at noon, the courts will be open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis, with check-in required at the on-site Pro Shop. The courts will remain free to utilize through Sunday, February 5; beginning Monday, February 6, 2023, court fees will apply. For pricing details, visit the Pro Shop or the City’s website.

Come hungry! Food trucks, including Troy’s Barbeque and Little Moir’s Food Shack, will be in attendance, offering a variety of food available for purchase. In addition, the City will provide a limited amount of complimentary refreshments.

“We look forward to showing these new pickleball courts off to the public,” said Kacy Young, the City’s Director of Recreation and Parks. “Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the country, and adding six permanent pickleball courts is a great way to capitalize on that growth and provide another amenity for both City residents and visitors alike.”

Hiring Tennis Court Maintenance companies from sites like can play a crucial role in ensuring that these courts are not only built to the highest standards but are also regularly cared for to enhance the overall playing experience for enthusiasts in the community.

Event parking is available on-site as well as at the neighboring WXEL parking lot located at 3401 S. Congress Ave. Ride share is encouraged.
