For the third consecutive year, this dynamic sport, a thrilling blend of table tennis, badminton, and tennis, claims the title of America's fastest-growing sport. Born from the leisurely pursuits of three vacationers on Bainbridge Island near Seattle in 1965, pickleball has since boomed into a national passion.
As of 2022, the Association of Pickleball Professionals reports an impressive 36.5 million enthusiasts across the United States. The sport's popularity isn't merely growing—it's skyrocketing, with a staggering average growth rate of 223.5% over the last three years, according to the SFIA.
The sport's appeal is broad: pickleball courts are popping up all over the country with a current count of 13,969 and a few more when The Racquet Club is delivered.
The pickleball industry is thriving too. In 2021, the pickleball paddle market was valued at a hefty $152.8 million. And that's just the beginning—the market is predicted to grow at a rate of 7.7% CAGR through 2028.
In short, America and so has Miami caught the pickleball fever, and it's showing no signs of cooling down!
