New Pickleball Venues for 2023
It’s an exciting time to be in the world of pickleball! As the sport continues to grow, so does the need for new venues to play. Currently, at most pickleball hot spots, there are more players than courts. The need for more courts, especially indoor pickleball facilities is great.
Fortunately, over the past couple of years, investors have started to build more courts (and not just painting lines over a tennis court). There are many new, cool venues being built which incorporate pickleball with restaurants and other entertainment.
Pickleball Venue Franchises Coming to a City Near You!
Some pickleball venues that were early pioneers in the market were Chicken N Pickle and Smash Park. Both have done so well that they are franchising in many locations. Today, additional new pickleball facilities that are planning to be built in multiple locations are:

- The Pickleball Club is planning to open 15 indoor venues across FL
Single Pickleball Facilities that are Being Built
There are also additional new single pickleball facilities being built across the country. Who knows, if they’re really successful, they might want to franchise like the others! Some of the new venues are:
- Aces Pickleball in Cincinnati, OH
- Pickle & Chill in Columbus, OH
- Pickle and Social Gwinnett in Georgia
- Rally Pickleball in Charlotte, NC
- The Pickle Lodge in Cincinnati, OH
Pickleball Venues in Ohio
In our area, south and central Ohio, pickleball has grown over the past few years to become quite a hot spot. For example, in the Greater Cincinnati area, there are two different outdoor venues each having 18 dedicated pickleball courts. Those venues are in addition to all of the other outdoor court facilities across the state. However, the need for indoor courts has been great. Fortunately, individuals and investors are building many new indoor pickleball facilities.
In the Columbus area:
- Pickle Shack is open with 6 indoor courts. Plus, they are already planning to expand
- Pickle & Chill hosted the MLP before even being open to the public
- Real Dill is a pickleball/restaurant franchise that is opening in 2023
In the Cincinnati area:
- Aces Pickleball in the Factory 52 development is opening soon
- The Pickle Lodge is going to be the 2nd largest indoor pickleball venue in the country. It opens in 2023
Other Pickleball Hotspots
As the sport is growing, we know there are many other pickleball hotspots popping up all over the country. States such as Florida, Texas, and Arizona have their pick of places to play while other states are trying to catch up.
