Just because you’re sleeping in a hotel tonight, doesn’t mean you can’t satisfy your pickleball itch. At least one major hotel chain has embraced the pickleball craze, installing courts at six of its lodgings.
Hilton has installed pickleball courts at six of its U.S. hotels. According to the hotelier, the company’s 2023 Hilton trends report stated that wellness remains a priority for travelers, with more than 25% of respondents saying that fitness amenities like sports centers or activities are important to them when traveling this year.
It makes sense, then, that Hilton would offer pickleball courts. After all, a growing number of guests at these hotels will be pickleball fans. The addition of courts will improve the stay of these guests.
