This is the place to be! Here in Naples, FL at The Pickleball Capital of the World! Today is Fat Tire Friday, and there are a lot of great matches to watch here at the US Open. As you prepare your visit, please remember:

  • No outside alcohol is permitted on the premises.
  • Pets are welcome if on a leash and attended to at all times.
  • No pets are allowed on Zing Zang Championship Court.

We look forward to welcoming you here at East Naples Community Park for the final two days of the US Open.


This is Robert’s first time playing in the US Open and he will be playing in Wheelchair Doubles, Upper-Level Singles and Hybrid. Learn how he fell in love with the game, why he loves playing pickleball and how he thinks the game will continue to evolve in the next five years. Plus, if you see him on the courts, ask him about meeting “Eddie” on the courts, who happens to be in a small band called Pearl Jam.
