Look in the recreation news and check out advanced beginner or intermediate opens. Most open pickle ball starts at 9:30-10:00. You can play at any open pickle ball but it’s more fun to play with the same level players.

Since you are near Mulberry RecCenter, go there. There are two sides, one for more advanced, other side for more casual players.

Santiago is a great place to play. All levels play there and newbies are always welcomed. Look for Bernice if she is there. She runs a PB club and is also a lovely person to meet

If you know how to keep score and are actually 3.0 players you can go any rec center between 8am and 10AM for open play. If you want to play after those times look for open advance beginner play times usually somewhere everyday of week in the rec. news guide. Some groups reserve courts after 12 PM they may or may not allow walk in’s. These groups are usually posted in the rec. guides and usually state if the welcome new players, if the don’t probably closed group, usually on billboards/ information board in front of courts also.
