Maxwelton Braes

Maxwelton Braes Lodge in Bailey's Harbor is where Pickleball is credited as beginning in Door County around 2010. A group of players from Door County were introduced to the game while visiting a warmer climate. They continued to play Pickleball upon their return to Door County.

The courts at Maxwelton Braes Lodge were just recently resurfaced in 2021. There are 4 dedicated Pickleball courts and 2 shared courts. There is a $25 annual fee or a $5 drop-in fee to use these courts and a signed liability waiver is required prior to playing. No play allowed prior to 9AM everyday. Nets and balls are provided in an unlocked box on the courts. If you are interested in adding your name to the email distribution list for Maxwelton Braes, please send an email to
