SARASOTA, Fla. — The Pickleball Club, a firm founded in 2019 that develops and operates private, membership-based high-amenity indoor pickleball facilities throughout Florida, recently secured its eighth and ninth sites for future Florida club locations in Orlando in Orange County and Greenacres in Palm Beach County.
The Pickleball Club placed under contract a 3.4-acre parcel in Orlando, Fla. for its eighth location at 1427 N. Semoran Blvd. for a 33,800-square-foot climate controlled facility with 12 indoor pickleball courts, 130 parking spaces and Players’ Courtyard with two outdoor pickleball courts and two bocce ball courts. The Orlando location will also feature a 3,900-square-foot Players’ Lounge mezzanine overlooking the courts, the company’s own restaurant, Pickle’s Café, and Dink’s Pro Shop. The club is expected to break ground in June 2024 and open in the summer of 2025.
In Greenacres, The Pickleball Club is also under contract for its ninth site, a 4.9-acre parcel located at 5234 S Haverhill Road.
“The city of Greenacres is excited to be home to The Pickleball Club, bringing their premier, world-class pickleball experience to Palm Beach County,” said Andrea McCue, city manager. “Their state-of-the-art, indoor facility will offer members of all ages, opportunities for play, whether you’re new to the sport and play for fun, or you want to hone your craft with their video technology used for skills development and training. They have created a unique experience that fosters socialization and builds relationships while helping members pursue a healthy lifestyle.”
The 41,140-square-foot climate controlled facility will offer members 16 indoor pickleball courts, 184 parking spaces, Players’ Courtyard with three covered outdoor courts and two bocce ball courts. Inside, a 3,850-square-foot Players’ Lounge will overlook the downstairs courts, Dink’s Pro Shop and Pickle’s Café, similar to the Venice location and other facilities. Groundbreaking for the club is expected in June 2024, with an opening in the summer of 2025.
“The Pickleball Club’s vision and mission is dedicated to improving and making a difference in the lives of their members and offering an experience that exceeds expectations. This closely aligns with our city’s mission, values and goals to provide a community that offers exceptional services and amenities where people want to live, learn, work and play,” said McCue.
“Leadership from Greenacres was instrumental in helping create this amazing opportunity, both for the city of Greenacres and for our company,” said Brian McCarthy, chief executive officer of The Pickleball Club. “From the very first interaction when they reached out to us, we knew we had an ideal governmental partner. Greenacres is a superb location for us, with over a million people living within a 25-minute average drive from the location. The club will be an outstanding amenity for the city and serve as one of our hubs for Palm Beach County.”
“We also look forward to partnering with The Pickleball Club’s Play For Life Foundation, as we proudly have a municipal fire department and a year round, nationally accredited and Gold Seal Quality Care program that serves youth from K-12,” said McCue.
The Pickleball Club’s first location is now open and operating in Sarasota near Lakewood Ranch, with close to 600 members. Other locations under development include Port St. Lucie, which is currently under construction, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, The Villages, Pinellas Park and Venice.
