Philadelphia-area players looking for an indoor pickleball court will soon have a new option: a $4 million facility with 16 courts opening this spring in Malvern, Pennsylvania, about 35 miles from the city.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Bounce Pickleball will be the first dedicated indoor pickleball center in the Philadelphia area when it opens in May. The center will fill the 36,000-square-foot space that was once home to the Great Valley Racquet Club.
The Inquirer reported that the new facility will feature tournaments and leagues. And in an interesting move, it will also feature facility play, giving members the opportunity to compete against the country’s top pickleball players.
Demand should be strong for the new facility. Braden Keith, marketing and operations manager with Bounce, told the Philadelphia Inquirer in an earlier interview that there are about 2,000 regular pickleball players in the Philadelphia area.
Talen Singer and Bill Davis are the founders of Bounce Pickleball. Singer told the Inquirer that Bounce plans to open six more facilities during the next two years in the Philadephia area.
The goal of Bounce Pickleball? Keith told NBC 10 Philadelphia that the facility could serve as a ‘third place.’
“We believe that pickleball courts can be the new ‘3rd Place,’ a space outside of work and the home to foster friendships and build new relationships.”Braden Keith
