Pickleball Construction Boom In Full Swing

by The Dink Media Team

A new 320-acre sports and entertainment complex is planned for Mesa, Arizona, including a 40-court pickleball facility.

Not all of us are fortunate enough to live in a city like Naples, Fla., which has more than 70 dedicated pickleball courts. Fortunately, Pickleball Construction continues. And fast. Within the past two months, at least six major pickleball complexes have opened in the United States:

 And many, many more courts are on the way:

  • A massive sports complex called Legacy Sports Park in Mesa, Arizona, will include 40 pickleball courts;
  • The Pickle Bar in Summerville, S.C., is scheduled to open in fall 2022;
  • The Electric Pickle, a 3-acre, 10,000-square-foot pickleball complex, will break ground in Las Vegas by the end of 2022;
  • A Prescott, Ariz., multi-sport complex that will include 24 indoor pickleball courts, is scheduled to open December 1, 2021;
  • 12 outdoor courts are expected to open in summer 2022 at Pacawa Park in Plover, Wisc.;
  • Atascadero, Calif., is building four outdoor courts in Colony Park; and
  • Marysville, Washington, recently broke ground on eight new outdoor courts at Jennings Park.

It’s great to see all of these cities get dedicated pickleball courts. Meanwhile in Atlanta, where there is a robust pickleball community that must travel 20-50 miles to play on dedicated courts. Yet, Atlanta prefers to resurface unused tennis courts (yes there is a court that no one has played tennis on in several years, but pickleballers mark with chalk several times a week to play on) rather than paint pickleball lines and install pickleball nets. It’s beyond frustrating.

The annual PPA and APP Atlanta tournaments are 45-60 minute drives from the airport. They should not carry the city of Atlanta in their name, because it gives Atlanta too much credit.
Any advice on how to get a city to wake up to pickleball?
