The owners say that Pickles is the premier Pickleball facility in New England, and they are passionate about the sport and their growing business.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about this exciting new sport that is attracting players of all ages and abilities.

The show was broadcast on 95.9 WATD-FM from 7-8 p.m. on Sunday, June 20. If you missed the broadcast or would like to listen again, please click on the audio link below and enjoy!

The Pickles idea started from two women with a passion for and, almost an addiction to, the sport of Pickleball. After participating in the sport and observing the huge following it has, they identified the need for more local outdoor courts as well as an even bigger need, and demand, for indoor courts dedicated exclusively to the sport of Pickleball. To take it a step further, they envisioned a place that was much more than just a facility to play Pickleball, it would be a social destination.

Pickles is a Club where friends, families and colleagues can enjoy and participate in the exciting sport of Pickleball while socializing with other Pickleball enthusiasts from ages 4 to 94. It is the “Premier Pickleball facility in New England” providing 6 Climate Controlled Indoor Tournament Sized Courts, 2 Indoor Dinking Practice Courts, 4 Outdoor Courts, a Player’s Lounge with viewing deck, “The Kitchen” which serves an assortment of pre-packaged snack food items, and a variety of beverages including beer, wine and malt liquors, and a retail shop where you can purchase the latest Pickleball “gear.”
