Developed in the state of Washington in 1965, Pickleball has slowly but surely become one of the most popular outdoor games played by adults. For many, having access to a pickleball court is nothing short of a luxury, and St. Augustine is home to a number of condo and townhouse communities that pull out all the stops when it comes to amenities, including pickleball courts.
Whether you’re an avid pickleball player or you’re just getting started, St. Augustine is just the place to pursue your interest, get outside, and start having fun with family and friends on the pickleball court.
Situated in the heart of St. Augustine’s golf community of Palencia, Village Square is a community of twenty-four condominiums that not only caters to golf lovers, but to those who appreciate a good pickleball match.

Prices at Village Square run the gamut from the low $300s to $1M, depending on the size of the condo as well as the view it offers.
