  • 12 state-of-the-art indoor pickleball courts with seating 
  • 5 cabana courts with couches, high-tops and televisions 
  • A full-service restaurant with a casual menu that can be delivered courtside 
  • A high-end full sports bar 
  • An outdoor dining patio 
  • A dedicated space for private events  

A few quotes of note: 

  • Pickle Haus co-founder Graham Palmer shared his why pickleball is such a successful social sport: “You can play it very competitively, but you can also play it in a social way, where you can take turns playing, and eat and drink and enjoy yourself.” 
  • Jeff VanDixhorn, Pickle Haus co-founder, praised the courts at Pickle Haüs saying they are “probably the nicest courts you could ever play on. We did a five-layer DecoTurf cushioned surface. Every court is fenced on four sides which is a big deal. Most places you play, the ball is rolling across courts. The lighting is great. The facility has 24-foot ceilings, so it’s very open. Every court has a sitting area.”
