Membership for 2023

The Signature Pickleball Center is a members only facility requiring a Signature Sports or Golf memberships. Members may choose to play socially at the scheduled drop-in hours, reserve a court time for you and your partners to play on your own, or play competitively at organized events.

The SJPA has a yearly, per person fee. This is different from the club dues paid to The Clubs At St James to be a Signature Sport or Signature Golf member.

Almost ALL events on our calendar are for SJPA members only. The events listed on the calendar will always specify otherwise.

Please note: Social Events that require an additional fee or waived fee for SJPA members are for established SJPA members only.

SJPA Social Events require that you be a paid member before the event was posted. Becoming a member for an event that provides discounts, is not valid for that event (unless you just moved here in the last 6 months).

The Clubs at St. James currently has 10 Pickleball courts. The eight new courts are located to the left as you come in the main entrance, adjacent to the entrance to the Reserve: “Greg Rymer Memorial Pickleball Courts”. They are lighted for night play and restrooms on site. All Pickleball courts are limited to Signature Sport and Signature Golf members.

Two courts are behind the SeaSide Wellness Center: “Seaside Pickleball Courts”. Court 14 is the first one you come to, and Court 15 is the next court. The courts will be lighted soon. Use of the Seaside courts is limited to Signature Sport and Signature Golf members.

Courts may be booked seven days in advance in 90-minute increments. To book a court: Log-on to, click on “Court Reservations” and log on.
