Lucky Shots Pickleball is now open in northeast Minneapolis | News

MINNEAPOLIS, February 10, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Minnesota’s newest and only dedicated pickleball facility is reinvigorating an iconic 75-year-old warehouse and taking the world’s fastest-growing sport by storm.

The explosive enthusiasm for this new sport, which combines tennis, badminton and table tennis, has created a shortage of quality pickleball facilities in twin towns. Minneapolis creative real estate development firm First & First has built the groundbreaking multimillion-dollar facility, Lucky Shots Pickleball, in the bustling entertainment district of Northeast Minneapolis. The ideal location also offers a beautiful view of the Columbia golf course.

A portion of the facility, originally built in 1947 as a warehouse for Foley Manufacturing Company, was purpose-built and remodeled for the evolution of the sport of pickleball. The 40,000 square foot facility features 12 individually fenced pickleball courts that feature state-of-the-art, multi-layered padded surfaces intentionally designed for optimal resiliency, ball bounce, and player comfort and safety.

Lucky Shots was deliberately built with the intention of fostering a seamless environment for players of all levels – from newcomers to world-renowned professionals, as a space for players to thrive. Lucky Shots offers clinics, private lessons and open games to showcase the fun, accessibility and style of pickleball while providing other great recreation and fitness options for everyone. Its location next to the booming arts and entertainment district of Northeast Minneapolis puts players close to other fun things to explore, including state-of-the-art distilleries, breweries, art galleries and studios, and more.

“We set out to make Lucky Shots the coolest pickleball club in the world. Our facility is air-conditioned, with state-of-the-art lighting and court surfaces that make it the perfect environment for a game of pickleball that really legit,” said Peter Remes, founder of Lucky Shots. “Pickleball has exploded in popularity because it’s indescribably fun and accessible to almost anyone and all ages. At the same time, it’s ideal for anyone looking for healthy activity, intense competition and simple ways to s having fun with their friends and family.”

“Playing Lucky Shots is by far the best way to get into this sport,” said Scott Schreierpickleball player Eden Prairie. “We are used to playing on redesigned tennis courts for pickleball or poorly renovated facilities at health clubs or gyms. The staff and coaches at Lucky Shots clearly love what they do, and they all help to become better players and have a good time.We’ve needed a place like this since pickleball came along.

Lucky Shots opened in late 2021 and pushed players onto the courts as the snow hit the ground in Minneapolis, but they are investing heavily to make it a destination space that captures all the sporting, aesthetic and social appeal of pickleball. Catering service is expected to begin in early 2022 and facilities will be further developed for more socializing and other gaming-related activities.

“We offer active lessons and clinics to make pickleball even more accessible to players. It’s an amazing sport, easy to get started and extremely addictive,” said Peter Remes of Lucky Shots. “Our team is made up of people who live and breathe the sport, so our customers can learn from the best, make new friends and build stronger relationships. At the same time, pickleball is great training and helps people get fit, feel great and enjoy life more in 2022.”

Lucky Shots also works with local organizations and businesses to provide group outings, team building activities and innovative new options to celebrate different stages of life.
