Why invest in Pickleball?
The Pickleball Club LLC, our parent company, is developing The Pickleball Club™ to be the premier membership-based indoor pickleball facilities in the United States.. The Company will begin in Sarasota, Florida, where the first club is under development. The Company’s strategy is to take advantage of the significant unmet demand for a quality indoor sports experience dedicated to pickleball. Each of the Company’s clubs is designed to be approximately 34,000 sq. ft. with 12 indoor pickleball courts, multiple outdoor courts (depending on space), an outdoor activity center, pro shop, Pickles Café, and luxurious locker room facilities. Pickles Café will be supplemented by a series of rotating food trucks, to accommodate special events and major activities such as tournaments. The Club’s positioning is a “Member Only” amenity-based destination. The Clubs will focus on the social aspect of the sport, as well as health & fitness and skill development. Nearly 10% of the facility footprint will be dedicated to communal social space with ample seating from which members can socialize, watch gameplay and consume food and beverages from Pickles Café.
