Ace Pickleball Club Launches First Franchise with Technology-Enabled Indoor Courts

Pickleball, a paddle sport often described as a combination of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong, has seen a rapid increase in popularity in recent years.[0] It is an easy game to learn, fast-paced, and appeals to all ages and physical abilities.[1] According to the SFIA’s 2022 report, in 2021, the sport grew to include 4.8 million players in the United States.[2] [2]

The Ace Pickleball Club is gearing up to introduce their much-awaited franchise of modern indoor pickleball courts, boasting eight to sixteen regulation-sized courts in a temperature-controlled setting, to ensure the best player experience with lively music, on-court technology for live streaming and instant replay, as well as social and event spaces. This is all slated to take off in early 2023.

Founder and CEO Jay Diederich and Co-Founder and President Joe Sexton of Ace Pickleball Club saw a void in the space and growing demand for high quality indoor facilities that provide year-round access to players of all ages and skill levels across the country.

The game is also good for health, with a new Western State Colorado University study of 15 middle-aged and older adults finding that regular pickleball playing resulted in improved blood pressure and cardiorespiratory fitness.[0]

[3] In St. Louis, Richard Chaifetz has announced the launch of a Major League Pickleball team and over at Hall, dual-use courts have been created for pickleball across one and a half of the current tennis courts.

Ace Pickleball Club is the first franchise to offer technology-enabled indoor pickleball courts with monthly memberships and is backed by investors including Andy Stenzler, Doug Birer, Eric Simon, Nena Mass, Tabish Jesrai and Mohammad “Musto” Omar, Workweek Capital, and Wendy Selevitch.
