More Pickleball Kingdom venues are coming to North Texas.

Dallas-based commercial real estate developer and Pickleball Kingdom franchisee Dan Jenkins has secured an expanded deal to open 20 new sporting venues around North Texas, with the first location set to open in Plano in January 2024, the Dallas Business Journal reported.

With 15 indoor courts coupled with outdoor surfaces, the Plano venue is being touted as the state’s “largest dedicated indoor Pickleball facility” and a “game-changing establishment that will reshape the pickleball landscape in North Texas,” according to the company.

“Since my childhood days of playing pickleball at camp, my love for this sport has been a lifelong companion. It’s a game that brings people together, creates lasting bonds, and fuels a passion that never fades,” said Jenkins in an October statement.

“As we prepare to open the largest indoor pickleball facility in Plano, we invite our friends and neighbors into a world of excitement, community, and healthy competition. I can’t wait to see players of all ages and levels come together to become a part of the Kingdom experience because ‘life is better with pickleball’!”

Jenkins had already secured a deal for five locations earlier this year, but the expanded agreement will lead to 18 additional locations throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including a Keller location slated for a summer 2024 opening.

The expanded deal with Jenkins “underscores our unwavering commitment to promoting pickleball” around the metroplex, said Pickleball Kingdom CEO Ace Rodrigues, reported the DBJ.

For Jenkin’s, the expanded deal represents an opportunity to spread the joy of pickleball with the North Texas community.

“Once I became part of the Pickleball Kingdom family, the outpouring of interest and excitement from the Dallas-Fort Worth community was so overwhelming that the only logical reaction was to expand,” Jenkins said in a statement, per the DBJ.
