 Biggest Opportunity in 2024-2025: Pickleball Court Business

Background:

Pickleball has been exploding in popularity in the last 4 years and it has become the fastest growing sport in the US. With 13.6 million players, it has grown 51.8% from 2022-2023 and an incredible 223.5% in four years since 2020 according to USA Pickleball.

The biggest problem is that the demand for courts is outstripping supply. According to the latest research by the Sport & Fitness Industry Association, it would take $902 million or 25784 new courts to meet current demands.

 

The first problem with building courts is the time-consuming approval process from the council or local government.

The Problem:

Roll out your Pickleball court on any hard, flat surface

 

The second limitation is the price. To construct a single court from scratch involves site clearing, grading, concrete installation, coating, acrylic surfacing and annual maintenance. The cost, according to Homeguide is between $20,000 to $50,000 for a single court.

 

This means for a normal 8 court facility, it could cost up to $160,000 to $400,000.

The Solution:

This is a perfect opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners to make money by providing temporary pickleball courts to fill overwhelming demand by rolling our portable pickleball flooring rolls onto any hard surface such as driveways, parking lots, rooftops, community halls, churches, trade show rooms and commercial spaces.

Potential Revenue Streams

From Court Rentals:

The average market rate of pickleball court rental is $20/hr. Assuming a 10 hour daily play time and an 80% occupancy rate, the daily potential revenue is $160 per day or $58400 per year.

 

4 Courts x per court potential revenue: $58400 x 4 = $233600 per year

8 Courts x per court potential revenue: $58400 x 8 = $467200 per year

From Tournaments:

Depending on how many courts you have and how well you market the tournament, on average you can see up to 50-300 attendees. For example the Loma Linda University Drayson Centre hosted their pickleball tournament and they got over 280 people to register.

 

$20-$100 per event per person

 

e.g $80 per person x 100 people tournament = $8000 revenue for a 4 court tournament space. *$2000 per court assuming 4 courts used in the tournament

Successful Pickleball Business Owners

Success Pickleball Court Entrepreneur

"I absolutely hated my job and my boss. Times were tough for me, especially during the cost of living crisis. After paying my bills, I had nothing left. I was working 60 hour days just to survive and it was brutal.

 

When I first stumbled upon the concept of pickleball, it was purely by accident. I had been looking for a way to diversify my income and came across an article detailing the rapid rise of this sport. I dug deeper and realized that pickleball was more than just a passing trend; not only is it the fastest growing sport, the number of players within the next 5-10 years will be 5x more than today.

 

After getting my own portable Mann Materials Pickleball courts, I leased a low-cost warehouse and set up my 4 courts there. On weekends, I would be able to fully book my courts. By hosting free clinics, tournaments, and social events, I created a sense of community among players and enthusiasts. This not only builds a loyal customer base but also generates word-of-mouth referrals that are invaluable for business growth.

 

Because these courts are portable, we host a lot of events for small and large businesses across the state on weekdays – setting up Pickleball games during trade shows, road shows, employee engagement days etc. We are able to charge over $1500+ per event.

 

The impact on my lifestyle and future plans has been nothing short of transformative. The steady stream of income from my thriving pickleball business has not only alleviated my financial burdens but allowed me to quick my job and become my own boss."
