Come play with us!  We have a large group of mostly 3.0 to 3.5+ level players that plays at Hillsborough Community College - Dale Mabry campus - across from Raymond James stadium on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Join us on Meetup.com to learn when we play and RSVP:   https://www.meetup.com/tampa-pickleball-meetup-group/

On Fridays, HCC as been hosting some different kinds of events, which are usually posted on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/hcctenniscenter or emailed to their members or you can locate them by checking the schedule on the HCC Tennis Center app you can download for Apple or Android devices.  Or you can give them a call at 813-348-1173 to ask about upcoming events.

The City of Tampa has recently updated their page with more courts listed:

and they are planning to have 49 throughout the city by 2023:

This following list includes photos of some outdoor courts my pickleball friends and I have visited in the Tampa Bay area.

Additionally, we love visiting the covered courts at G.T. Bray Park in Bradenton. The second time we went, it rained for 10 minutes and we didn't even notice!

This is a short video I took to give you an idea.

Beginner Play!  Bardmoor Country Club in Seminole is a great place to play if you're just starting out.  Text Merissa Rock at 954-817-8359 to be added to the beginners mass text group for various weekday mornings at 8am (sometimes it's at 9 depending on the time change so find out from Merissa, the pro there).   It costs $7 at the golf pro shop.  They have great bar-type food and beer/wine/liquor at the bar.
