The Pickleball Club, a Sarasota company that develops and operates private, membership-based high-amenity indoor pickleball facilities, is moving forward on a project in Palm Beach County. 

The company, in a Tuesday statement, says it recently secured site plan approval with a unanimous vote from the Greenacres City Council for the facility. Groundbreaking will take place by the end of the year, the release adds. Greenacres is about 10 miles southwest of West Palm Beach. 

This marks the ninth announced location in Florida for The Pickleball Club, founded in 2019. The first location under the brand opened in early 2023 in east Sarasota, just outside Lakewood Ranch. 

The Pickleball Club in Greenacres will sit on a 4.9-acre parcel. The 41,140-square-foot climate-controlled facility will offer members 16 indoor pickleball courts, 184 parking spaces, a players' courtyard with three covered outdoor courts and two bocce ball courts. Inside, a 3,850-square-foot lounge will overlook the downstairs courts, Dink’s Pro Shop and Pickle’s Café, similar to its other facilities, the release states. It's expected to open in 2025.

Other locations under development for The Pickleball Club include St. Lucie West and Village Park Center, serving the Villages, which are currently both under construction and opening later this year. Additional sites under development include Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, Pinellas Park, Orlando and Venice. 

The company recently placed a 3.4-acre site under contract in Orlando, officials say. On that site it intends to build a a 33,800-square-foot climate-controlled facility with 12 indoor pickleball courts, 130 parking spaces and courtyard with two outdoor pickleball courts and two bocce ball courts. 

Officials with The Pickleball Club have previously said they intend to invest $180 million into the development of 15 privately owned pickleball centers.
