Pickleball Food-and-Beer Complex Proposed in Maple Grove
What do you get when you mix the rising popularity of pickleball with the growth of craft beer? In Maple Grove, you get a new business.
A proposal by Minneapolis-based Ryan Cos. is before the Maple Grove Planning Commission this week for a business called Pints & Paddle. Plans calls for a 33,000-square-foot facility to be built adjacent to Crunch Fitness in The Grove shopping center.
The new business would have 10 indoor pickleball courts. It would also include a self-serve beer hall and restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating.
Pickleball, which is like a mixture of badminton, ping pong and tennis, is America’s fastest growing sport, according to fitness industry statistics.
