Embracing the fervor surrounding the beloved sport of pickleball, Dink & Dine Pickle Park from Orange County, California are set to revolutionize the Arizona market with an innovative Pickleball “eatertainment” concept. Anchored in Mesa, Arizona, this groundbreaking venue will boast 11 pickleball courts (eight indoor, three outdoor including a showcase court ideal for pro exhibitions and TV coverage), four distinct restaurants catering to various dining experiences, multiple bars, expansive seating for over 300 guests, a vibrant live music stage, and supplementary play areas. The Mesa location marks the inaugural Dink & Dine establishment, with negotiations underway for expansion into Southern California, Northern California, Salt Lake City, and Idaho.

Dink & Dine Pickle Parks are designed as inclusive community hubs where individuals, families, and corporate groups can engage in hours of play, relaxation, and socializing. Blending a worldclass pickleball facility with upscale amenities and cutting-edge technology in a seamless indoor-outdoor setting, this venue promises a new era of entertainment.

“Socializing and business discussions are now happening on the pickleball court and Dink & Dine Pickle Parks will expand this exponentially,” says Monica Challingsworth, COO. “We will have a full calendar of social activities, tournaments, lessons and games and a stage and entertainment area for live music. With an emphasis on corporate and social events we will provide full event planning and implementation.”

Technological enhancements, such as 25+ TV monitors and QR code ordering, will elevate the guest experience, while diversifying gaming options beyond pickleball to include cornhole, bocci ball, and more.

As pickleball emerges as the fastest-growing sport in the nation, Dink & Dine Pickle Parks stand at the forefront of this cultural phenomenon. With celebrities, athletes, and influencers flocking to the sport, major corporate sponsorships and investments are following suit, spanning sportswear, travel, automotive, financial, and F&B industries. The facility will boast a tournament-ready setup, including a sunken center court.

Following the launch of the initial complexes, Dink & Dine plans to explore franchise opportunities, offering a gateway for investors and entrepreneurs to join in this exciting venture.
