The fastest growing sport in the world just keeps on growing, as the $1.8 billion Frisco Station project just announced they will be adding a pickleball venue to its development.

Frisco Station, located on the west side of the Dallas North Tollway along Warren Parkway, already includes three office buildings, three hotels, and high-rise and mid-rise apartments.

The development will soon be joined by a couple of restaurant and entertainment venues: Fairway Social, and Pickle and Social.

Trey Sibley, general manager of The Rudman Partnership, said in a statement per Dallas Morning News, “Frisco has its first premier venue for pickleball, the fastest-growing sport in the world, and the space is the perfect place to host prestigious pickleball tournaments in the future.

“These two offerings are just the beginning of the entertainment we’ll bring to Frisco Station.”

Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney added in a statement of his own, “Our residents have been asking for more pickleball courts for quite some time, so I’m confident this concept will be popular with locals and visitors, alike.

“We’re a community with an active lifestyle and look forward to this concept complimenting Frisco Station’s development.”
