Pickle & Chill is the result of renovating an existing tennis facility into a thriving pickleball destination. With the fast-growing sport in mind, the project unfolds in three phases. The first phase introduces a 25,000-square-foot indoor venue featuring six state-of-the-art courts. Phase 2 connects these indoor courts with ten outdoor counterparts through expansive garage doors and introduces the entertainment area, while the third phase adds three more indoor courts and a bar to create a vibrant space that marries the thrill of the game with the outdoors.

At the heart of Pickle & Chill is a full-service bar and lounge designed to accommodate 150-200 patrons, enhancing the experience for players and spectators alike. Meyers+Associates played a pivotal role in the project, contributing to the architectural design and crafting a preliminary brand strategy, including naming, to capture the essence of this combination pickleball facility and lounge.

The space’s atmosphere exudes a cool, urban vibe, accentuated by an observatory area offering seating for a birds-eye view of the energetic gameplay. Pickle & Chill aims to foster a sense of community among pickleball enthusiasts, embodying the energy and excitement of being part of a larger network of players. The facility hosts a variety of activities, from Learn to Play Clinics and leagues to court reservations, open play, round robins, and tournaments, including hosting the Major League Pickleball team, the Columbus Sliders, for home games and tournaments with other MLP teams from around the country.
