Is Pickleball Your Game?

JW Marriot Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona now has 17 new pickleball courts including a Center Court with a 400 person capacity.

The game of Pickleball has experienced tremendous growth since it was first invented in 1965. According to the Sports and Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) Pickleball Participation Report, Pickleball has grown 21.3% from 2019 – 2020 to 4.2 million players in the U.S. alone.

Pickleball benefits resorts.

Sundial Beach Resort & Spa in Sanibel, Florida has offered pickleball to its members since 2019. With the phenomenal growth of the sport they have recognized new opportunities for continued growth. Part of their strategy is the appointment of Peter Redpath as head pickleball pro. Peter’s efforts combined with those of Racquet Sports Manager, Josh Jeffcott, include offering structured programing for members along with events that attract players from all over the country.

“Sanibel is one of the most unique destinations in the world. Sundial Beach Resort & Spa has recognized the explosive growth of pickleball and has committed to providing a facility that is also world class. Our team of IPTPA professionals are committed to offer programs, camps and festivals that will be world class,” says Peter Redpath. 

Reinforce your brand with a custom paddle.

“After building our first pickleball court at Tamarack Resort, the sport clearly took off and we found ourselves building three more within three years of the first court.  The sport brings the community together and has become a new favorite activity for many of our residents.  We offer TMPR’s best paddle, specially designed with our logo.  The signature TMPR paddles have been a big hit and our Tamarack community is eager to see the latest and greatest paddle come out each year."  - Levi Johnson, Community Manager, Tamarack Resort
