Pickleball at Emmalani Park

PHCA maintains 3 Pickleball Courts on Emmalani Drive.

Groups are private and you can see their schedule on the Calendar (link below). Nets aren't provided so each group brings their own. 

Drop-in players are welcome to meet the group before the start time to ask about availability.

Please remember that all players must park along the road shoulder of Emmalani Park. Parking on the adjacent vacant lot (which is private property) or inside the park is not allowed.

The Basics

What is Pickleball?
  1. A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong.
  2. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net.
  3. Played with a paddle and a plastic ball.

According to USAPA.ORG, Pickleball is:

A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

Pickleball Schedule 

Since the use of the Emmalani Park courts has increased, there is now a need for a structured reservation system. The goal of the system is to provide scheduled times for large pickleball groups/events while providing access for others to use the courts for basketball etc.

   Reservations are only needed if 2 courts will be used.
   If you wish to use 1 of the courts it is on a first-come first-served basis.
   The courts are NOT available on Sundays.
   A maximum of 4 mornings and 4 afternoons will be reserved. 
   Reservation requests must be received 2 business days before the date of use.


There are Pickleball courts in Hanalei and Kilauea also.
