A pickleball club is headed for the Lowcountry, and it’s kind of a big dill. Crush Yard aims to open this spring off Highway 17 in North Mount Pleasant, so we thought we’d show you around.
The ~40,000-sqft space will be open daily and features eight indoor courts, a restaurant with elevated pub food, a bar, and an outdoor lounge. Holy City Brewing created a microbrew for Crush Yard called Dinker’s Delight and Summerville’s One Nation Coffee will also be available on-site.
You can also look forward to:
- Events and private party rentals
- Private and group lessons
- Leagues and tournaments
- Two memberships: The Crush Membership including unlimited open play every morning and the Yard Membership including bottomless fountain drinks
While we wait for Crush Yard to open, here are a few fun facts about this popular pastime:
🥒 Pickleball is one of the fastest-growing sports in the country and is a cross between tennis, ping pong, badminton, and wiffle ball.
🥒 It was invented in 1965 by Joel Pritchard, Bill Bell, and Barney McCallum near Seattle, WA.
🥒 Joan Pritchard named pickleball after the rowing term “pickle boat,” aka a crew made up of leftover rowers, because it throws together elements of different games.
Stay tuned for updates on the grand opening at 3365 S. Morgans Point Rd. We’ll see you on the courts.
