Guess what’s taking Southern Baja by storm? Pickleball! That’s right, the sport hailed as the fastest-growing in the United States by the Sports and Fitness Industry Association, boasting over 4.8 million players by 2023, is making waves down here too. And it’s not just a passing trend; it’s rapidly becoming the go-to activity for locals and visitors alike.
The Tres Palapas Baja Pickleball Resort on the northern edge of Los Barriles is leading the charge with ten courts dedicated to the sport. Not to be outdone, the Playa del Sol hotel has added two more courts for enthusiasts. But the big news? The Hotel Palmas de Cortez, also in Los Barriles, is going all in with a whopping 24 new courts set to replace their former mini-golf course, ready to welcome players this fall.
Whether you’re a seasoned player or curious to see what all the fuss is about, Southern Baja’s becoming a pickleball paradise. Grab your paddles, and let’s hit the courts for some fun under the sun. The pickleball community here is warm, welcoming, and always ready for a game. See you on the court!
