PKLYN has secured an 18K sq. ft. space at 80 4th St., Brooklyn, NY 11231, right in the heart of Gowanus, Brooklyn. They are currently renovating the space and anticipate opening in the early summer of 2024.
The building is stunning, with 23-ft. high ceilings, exposed brick, and over 20 skylights. You can see the latest renders and other details they’ve unveiled about the venue over on their Instagram.
The facility is designed to be an inclusive, state-of-the-art destination, fostering community and quality play for competitive and casual players alike.
They’ll have five spacious indoor courts, plus a dink court, all with player-friendly layouts (read: lots of room to maneuver), plus a full bar and lounge area.
Rather than traditional “eatertainment,” they envision this as a social hangout and pickleball club, where they’ll serve drinks and light snacks, but beyond that, food will be provided by partnerships with local vendors.
PKLYN views this as the best way to focus on their core business and provide an incredible experience to everyone who walks through their doors.
About PKLYN And Its Founder
As I’m sure you know, pickleball is booming in New York City, yet quality indoor courts are shockingly hard to come by.
PKLYN’s founder, David Friedman, has been playing pickleball for years but really started finding his way into the Brooklyn pickleball community during the pandemic in 2020. You can hear all about his history with the sport and what led him to open his own facility in this interview with the founder of NYC Pickleball, Eric Ho.
