Pickleball Food Pub Brings Year-round Indoor Play

The sport that combines ping pong, badminton, and tennis is growing in popularity for players of all ages.

Bubble gum-like pops fill the air as pickleballers of all ages and skills test out the new eight-court Pickleball Food Pub in Westminster, which opened in February.

“This is what they come for,” says owner Sam Brown, stooping to touch the force-reduction (easy on the joints) tennis court-like floor. Recreation centers often set up pickleball on multipurpose wood courts, on which the whiffle ball can skip awkwardly, according to long-time player, Brown.

The gym and pub, off Wadsworth Parkway and 90th Avenue, welcomes guests into a lobby complete with table tennis, corn hole, 24 beer taps, and a pro shop. There’s no kitchen on site, but players can get eats delivered from nearby partners Marco’s Pizza, CD’s Wings, and Baskin-Robbins ice cream; a handy option for families who book the party room.

Find a full schedule of drop-in hours, doubles leagues, and specials online—kids ages five to 10 play free with parents on Sunday afternoons.
