Book a court

Court reservations open seven (7) days prior to booking date. No reservation is required to come in and enjoy a cocktail, play some ping pong, or sit on our awesome outdoor patio(s).

In the event you need to reschedule your booking, please call the main line at least 24 hours before scheduled booking time. 100% refunds may be issued for cancellations made at least 48 hours in advance. Refunds will NOT be made for no-shows or cancellations made after the scheduled booking time.

When you’re booking a court with us at PKL, you’re booking an experience. Each booking comes with the use of two (2) JOOLA balls. Upon completion of your reservations, please return balls to our pro-shop so they can be used by others.

JOOLA Seneca 14 and 16mm paddles will be available for a $5 rental fee if you don’t have your own.

Book a court

A standard reservation at PKL is 30-minutes or 1 hour.

For larger groups of 6 or more, 2-hour reservations are permitted. This setup allows for fair and equitable access to the courts, ensuring that all patrons get to enjoy the full PKL experience.

If your court is still available at the conclusion of your initial reservation, guests will be allowed to extend. Please visit the Pro Shop to confirm your reservation and court assignment prior to starting an extended reservation.

Book a court

No, we do not have a membership program. PKL is intended to be welcoming for everyone with courts available on a first come first serve basis 5 days in advance online. Additionally, our Annex, Hangout and Fieldhouse patios are available for seating all day on a first come, first served basis. Cherry Limeade anyone?

Yes!  We will have an awesome lineup of USA-Pickleball approved JOOLA paddles available for rent. Additionally, you may also purchase a JOOLA paddle from our pro-shop.

Sign-up will be through the “Open Play & Events” portal on our website. Walk-ins are also welcome. To start, Open Play will be FREE on Monday through Thursday from 11-2pm. Please be respectful of everyone as Open Play skill levels may vary.

Recreational league play for the Spring Season will be coordinated through Honcho Pickle and commence on April 23rd. Registration deadline is April 14th.

Please also sign up for our newsletter so we can keep you updated on any new pickleball programming re: leagues, open-play and social clinics.

Event sign up

PKL is a bar-service establishment that will go the extra mile to provide our guests with the best and most convenient experience possible. All of our bartenders and hosts will come out from behind the bar to wait on guests at tables as time permits. This type of service allows our guests to conveniently order from any employee whether they are walking the patio or come up directly to the bar to order. Additionally, every table will be equipped with QR codes whereby guests will be able to order and pay directly from your table or seat. Our hosts will run your food and drinks directly to you.

PKL is a 21-and-up concept every day. For those looking for a more family-friendly establishment, y’all are welcome to eat, drink and enjoy our patio vibes at our adjacent sister concept, FM Kitchen & Bar.

Just like our sister concept FM Kitchen & Bar, PKL welcomes all of your furry friends in our outdoor areas. At this time, only service dogs will be allowed inside.
