The 2023 Biofreeze USA Pickleball National Championships are taking Dallas by storm, and a newcomer to the scene, Mr. Pickles Pacific Northwest Gin, is making its debut as an official sponsor. This gin is named after master distiller Ben Green's pit bull rescue pup, and it will be front and center at the tournament, occupying a location on “Pickleball Boulevard,” the entertainment hub of the sport's largest-ever tournament. Visitors to the tournament can try Mr. Pickles' signature concoction, The Pickleball, made with gin, Aperol, lemon juice and pineapple juice.
Of course, you can always consider Boardwalk Bites' eats and treats as a perfect pair for your pickleball entertainment. Check our menu now. Pickleball is a fusion of tennis and ping pong, and it has seen a surge in popularity in recent times. This sport is accessible to people of all ages and skill levels, and it doesn't require any special equipment. It's no surprise that the Sports & Fitness Industry Association has recognized pickleball as the "fastest-growing sport over the last two years." The national championship tournament at Brookhaven Country Club this week will be the world's largest-ever pickleball tournament, with a field of more than 3,500 amateur and professional players. Club members and fans are welcome to watch the matches, participate in clinics or reserve courts to play.
