Regardless of your skill level, the Lake Chapala Pickleball community offers opportunities to meet and play with others at your level. Currently we play only at the four public pickleball courts in the Parque de la Cristianía, which is a city park on the east side of Chapala about 6 blocks north of the lakefront. During normal times we play outdoors at two facilities: the Hotel Villa Monte Carlo in Chapala and the Racquet Club in San Juan Cosala, west of Ajijic.
The Cristianía courts are available by advance reservation only, 7 days a week. Each reservation is for four players. In the event one of the four players fails to show up, the court attendant Marco will play as a substitute. There is no opportunity to play by "just showing up" and filling an open position.
Each reservation is for a two-hour time slot, a cost of 200 pesos per court (not per player). Available time slots are at 8:00 am, 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. The 10:00 am time slot is fully booked 7 days a week and is not available at this time. To make a reservation, phone or text Marco at 332-866-3380.
Open Play (Everyone Welcome)
During normal times (but NOT NOW), open "drop in" play is open to everyone. Players randomly group themselves into foursomes at the same general skill level and play on the next available court.
After the covid crisis passes, we expect open play sessions to resume at the six-court Hotel Vila Montecarlo facility on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings from 8:00 am until noon. Scheduled sessions at the Racquet Club are also expected to resume.
At this time reserved courts are the only option available. Groups of four may reserve one court at the Cristianía Park facility for exclusive use by the group. Each reservation is for a two-hour time slot, a cost of 200 pesos per court (not per player). Available time slots are at 8:00 am, 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. The 10:00 am time slot is fully booked 7 days a week and is not available at this time. To make a reservation, phone or text Marco at 332-866-3380.
