We’ve put together our top 8 reasons why you should get a pickleball court at your venue!
- Open To All
Pickleball requires a small court, which opens up the game to players of all abilities, you don’t need to run too far or too fast to get your way around the court. Almost anyone can participate and helps include those that may otherwise feel their sporting days were behind them.
- Small Courts
As Pickleball has smaller courts, this means they work better in smaller spaces or provide the opportunity for more courts.
If you are limited in space for new recreational courts, a pickleball court over a tennis court could be the way to go.
- Softer Surface
Synthetic Turf is a softer surface than concrete or floorboards, which may cushion the fall should a player slip and be slightly gentler on joints. We use the highest quality synthetic turf for our sporting applications which is evident in the longevity of the grounds we have developed.
- Keeps Residents Active
Playing pickleball allows residents, guests and all players to enjoy a great sport and keep active while practicing balance, agility, hand-eye coordination and more. Exercise has many benefits including better physical and mental health.
