According to a May 23, 2024, blog post on the website, The Kitchen, when considering American cities with a population over 100,000, Madison has the second most outdoor, dedicated pickleball courts in the country!

The top 10 U.S. cities with the most pickleball courts per 10,000 people are as follows:

1. Louisville, KY (3.8)

2. Madison, WI (2.3)

3. Honolulu, HI (1.9)

4. Saint Petersburg, FL (1.8)

5. Port Saint Lucie, FL (1.6)

6. Bakersfield, CA (1.6)

7. Boise, ID (1.5)

8. Albuquerque, NM (1.4)

9. Virginia Beach, VA (1.2)

10. Saint Louis, MO (1.2)

Of course, for those of us who live in Madison and the greater Dane County Area, we know that several of the smaller communities surrounding Madison actually have many more dedicated pickleball courts than Madison proper. In addition, there are many tennis courts in both Madison and the surrounding communities that are also lined for pickleball, providing everyone with additional court space over-and-above that provided solely by the dedicated pickleball courts.
