What does it cost?

St. Michael's is run as a non-profit organization and therefore doesn't require fees to play. The public is always welcome. There is a great deal of maintenance that goes into keeping our courts the best around. Therefore, We do have recommended donation to help us keep it that way for daily play:

Non-Members $4.00 Members $2.00

Place your donation in the slot below the window on the Pickleball Shed. While you are there, make sure to sign the daily sign-up sheet. This is required of EACH player before entering the courts, regardless of whether they made a donation or not.


There is ample parking at St. Michael's for pickleball players. The North Parking Lot, bordering on Beech Ave, has six designated pickleball parking spaces. If these spots are full, consider using the South Lot, bordering on Christiansen Way. The North Lot is also used for Beach Parking run by the Church. Especially on hot days or when the North Lot appears to be filling up, the South Lot is the best option, and frees up spaces for Beach Parking.

Thank you and see you on the courts!
