One of the sunniest cities in the USA, Phoenix Arizona is an excellent place to play pickleball. 

As of August 2022, there were at least 38 outdoor spots to play, a number that is now likely outdated.

Rather than list all of those, we figured we'd spotlight a few of the city's most accessible, dedicated pickleball courts and provide everything you need to know about each.
