Member or not, the site has a descriptive list of local courts with contact information.
  • Pickleball Coaching International an educational organiztion that provides a list of local certified instructors. (Currently 3 listed locally.)
  • USA Pickleball is an excellent resource for everything from official rules to approved paddles and balls to learning how to determine your level.
  • The Pickler blog/podcast explains how to rate yourself, goes over the basics of play and the rules, tips and trends.
  • Dave Marshall Tennis and Fitness in Lewes is also a good
  • resource for instruction and indoor play on rainy days. (fees and reservations apply)
  • Finally, the best resource to find out on a daily basis where 
  • games are being played and whether they are open to the public is Playtime Scheduler. This “authority” on actual local play time is a free app for computer or 
  • phone.
