The number of courts depends greatly on the possible number of members/users in your club
Anything from 2 to 60 is seen throughout our country. It’s probably best to start out on the low side of your estimated usage, but place the courts in a situation where expansion is feasible. It is useful to place a backboard on the back of one of the courts, to get players interested in the game.
Additionally, in today’s market, constructing two pickleball courts is a popular feature. Again, leaving room for expansion is recommended.
