Our Courts

All our courts are outdoor and located at La Unidad Deportiva (the municipal sports facility). We have one lower, enclosed court and 3 open courts available on the basketball and volleyball courts. 


Games are in the mornings throughout the year. We offer open play, a ladies day, and days for advanced players (by invitation).
Currently, due to Covid-19 restrictions we have enabled a registration system.

Drop-in Play

Open Play days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) are for all players. Typically players enter the court via rotation, winners stay on the court for two games. This allows everyone an opportunity to play.

about us

We are an easy-going group of Mexican and International players who live in SMA full-time or weather the northern winters here. The club was started by an Australian in 2010 and has been growing steadily.

The weather is always perfect for Pickleball in San Miguel. We invite you to join us whether you are here visiting for a day, a month or live here full-time.

A Game for everyone

Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court using a ball similar to a whiffle ball (yellow plastic ball with holes in it), but slightly smaller. The paddles are solid and light (about 7.5 ounces) and the net is 2″ lower than on a tennis court. The lower net, paddle size, and whiffle-style ball allow the game to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities but also provides advanced players a competitive game.

It is typically played as doubles with 2 players on each side of the court, although not as common, singles games can be played as well.
