The Glendale Valley in Arizona can now boast a major new pickleball facility courtesy of The Pickleball Space. The courts are located at 5665 W. Bell Road, with the grand opening held at 8 a.m. on December 26th.
The 30,000-square-foot indoor pickleball facility will feature 10 courts and a refreshment area providing coffee and ready-to-eat meals. This location also features a Pickleball Pro Shop, where players can buy or rent gear.
John Solema, Director of Development And Programs, told Nicole Guttierez of abc15.com, “We are thrilled to bring the Glendale community a welcoming space for players of all skill levels to experience the game of pickleball.
“Our vision is to deliver a warm and dynamic sense of community at our venue and to be a space where the game of pickleball can thrive.”
If you are a beginner, fret not, this place has an “Academy” with lessons starting at $30. Classes include group, private, semi-private, and small-group formats for players of all skill levels.
The Pickleball Space will be hosting a two-day Grand Opening Charity Pickleball Tournament on Saturday, January 20, and Sunday, January 21.
According to a release, 50% of the proceeds will benefit the C4 Foundation. The foundation provides resources and support to active-duty Navy SEALS and their families. Click here for more information on the tournament.
