Pickleball has taken America by storm, becoming one of the fastest growing sports in the country. And in response, NYC has opened various courts in the past year, from the complete transformation of Wollman Rink into 14 pickleball courts to luxury courts at LifeTime in Hell’s Kitchen. And now, another exciting opening is coming to City Point!
Court 16 will take over a fourth floor, 26,000-square-foot venue at City Point for their flagship indoor tennis and pickleball club. The official grand opening is on Monday, August 28th, in conjunction with the ’23 US Open Tennis Tournament finals.
Court 16 was first founded in 2014 as a members-focused tennis and pickleball club for all ages, valuing sportsmanship, discipline and inclusivity.
The new space will feature seven tennis and pickleball courts, a Ligne Roset lounge, and a Pro Shop offering Babolat racquets for purchase. The City Point flagship will join other Court 16 locations in Long Island City and the Financial District.
“Brooklyn is where our heart beats, and we are thrilled to be opening Court 16 at City Point, a lifestyle destination,” said Anthony Evrard, co-founder and CEO of Court 16. “It will further our USTA-sanctioned approach of teaching racquet sports on courts, which increase in size as athletes graduate to higher levels.”
Court 16 will welcome everyone from novices to seasoned players. With courts varying in size, from 36 feet to full sized courts, the flagship will cater to every players’ skill level.
Tennis classes will be available at the flagship, along with special pickleball programming. Find enrollment details and more here.
