Pickle and Social is partnering with Fairway Social to open Frisco Station’s first entertainment venue in 2025, according to a news release.

In a nutshell

The venue will feature outdoor and indoor pickleball courts for lessons, league play, tournaments or pickup games. The location will also feature sports simulators, live entertainment, a chef-inspired menu, signature drinks, cornhole, beach volleyball and ping-pong.

It will be the first location in the U.S. to feature both Pickle and Social, and Fairway Social, according to the news release. Construction is slated to start in spring 2024 with an opening date expected in spring 2025.

“As one of the fastest-growing cities in America, it’s fitting for Frisco to become a destination for pickleball, one of the fastest-growing sports in the country,” Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney said in a statement. “Our residents have been asking for more pickleball courts for quite some time, so I’m confident this concept will be popular with locals and visitors, alike. We’re a community with an active lifestyle and look forward to this concept complimenting Frisco Station’s development.”

Pickle and Social aims to combine world-class pickleball courts with food, drinks and live entertainment, according to its website. The brand, managed by Competitive Social Ventures, has announced two other locations in Buford, Georgia, and Louisville, Kentucky.
