Local Pickleball Guide – Kailua Kona and Kauai, Hawaii

ALOHA to all of the pickleball players in the gorgeous state of Hawaii!

Kona Pickleball HuiKauai Pickleball

While pickleball is brand new to this state (it was brought to Kauai in 2011 by Jack Hodges) it is growing leaps and bounds. So far, it seems like the two “hotspots” are Kailua Kona on the Big Island and Kauai.

Each of these places have a dedicated pickleball club. Check out Kona Pickleball Hui, based in Kailua Kona, and Kauai Pickleball. Both clubs have that awesome Hawaiian spirit and welcome visitors with open arms… have paddle, will travel! They both often hold regular clinics, and post information on those on their Facebook pages.

  1. Greetings,
    I am from the mainland of Cali actually SF bayarea and looking to playing PB when we travel to Maui in August. Is there a group there that has open play or an “invited” we can share our likeness of playing in your area?

    Thanks for your reply,

    • You can find a complete listing of places to play in Hawaii by going to the USAPA.org website and clicking on “Places to Play” then “HI”. The Outrigger has a court available for guests. Thanks for asking.
