Pickleball remains hot!
Here's where to play pickleball in Boston this summer!


Pickleball has arrived in a big way in Boston!  Get your paddle ready - there's plenty of places to play in the city! 

PKL, a self-proclaimed "pickleball parlor" is located just down the street from Seaport, in nearby South Boston.  This indoor venue features 5 pickleball courts, plus a restaurant and lounge.  For new players, take a Pickleball 101 class!

The Track at New Balance (91 Guest Street, Boston) is an ideal place to play pickleball in Boston, featuring new courts in the Multi-Purpose Room and offers pickleball open to the public most weekday mornings.  Check their website for hours and prices.  

Harpoon Brewery recently opened 4 outdoor pickleball courts.  The courts are free for guest use and they are lighted.  Food & drinks are available for purchase.

The Somerville YMCA, about 15 minute drive from Seaport, is an ideal place to learn the game.  They have all the equipment to borrow (so no need to buy just yet!) and day passes are available for non-members.  Best of all, they offer free parking.  Be sure to check their website for hours as courts are available on a first come, first served basis.

In season, the nearby Lawn on D, already known as the place for outdoor games, features pickleball courts.  They are open during lawn hours and are first come, first served.  Guests can make reservations up to 14 days in advance by using their reservation system.  Their concessions are available for purchase; please note, outside food & drink is not allowed and this includes pre-filled water bottles.

Our Concierge Team is pleased to assist you with pickleball court reservations during your Seaport stay!
