The Pickleball Club Secures Site at The Villages During $180M Land-Grab Phase

The Pickleball Club, LLC, has entered into a purchase agreement on a 4.69-acre parcelat 11750 NE 62nd Terrace in The Villages, FL, which according to the company is one of the most active pickleball communities in the country. The complex will feature 16 courts inside a 40,773-square-foot building.

The Pickleball Club is deploying over $180 million to acquire sites and build at least 15 indoor private pickleball clubs throughout Florida. A location in Sarasota is under construction while the company has also acquired land in Port St. Lucie, Bonita Springs and The Villages and will acquire a parcel in Fort Myers in October.

“With major sports stars like LeBron James, Tom Brady and others getting in on the pickleball craze that is sweeping the nation, we know the time is now to be the market leader during this all-important land-grab phase of the industry to secure indoor space,” said Matt Gordon, co-founder and CFO of The Pickleball Club.
