ONE CLUB Opens New Outdoor Pickleball Courts for Residents and Visitors


ONE CLUB Gulf Shores announced today its debut of the first public outdoor pickleball courts in South Baldwin County, including Gulf Shores tourist destinations Foley, and Orange Beach. The newly renovated luxury resort, located at 4500 Gulf Shores Parkway in Gulf Shores, Alabama, now offers members and visitors access to open play on its three new lighted courts.

Pickleball is growing in popularity throughout Baldwin County. To stay on top of the trend, ONE CLUB has partnered with Baldwin Countys Pickleball Ambassador Eddie McDonald, a resident expert of the sport, who will help with coaching, lessons, and organized play. McDonald will lend his experience as an International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association (IPTPA) certified instructor, providing information or requested instruction for players of all skill levels.

Im excited that ONE CLUB made such an incredible investment for this area. Were on the ground floor of something huge, said McDonald. Most people prefer outdoor play to indoor options. And the mature active groups enjoy the heavy social aspect and low intensity of the sport. I anticipate the courts getting a lot of play. This weeks debut is just in time for the arrival of snowbirds from all over the country.

ONE CLUB will host a Pickleball Palooza Grand Opening on Saturday, December 1 and Sunday, December 2 from 8 am to 8 pm. The public event will offer free open play and clinics led by McDonald, along with access to full food and beverage service at the resorts restaurant and entertainment venue Bar 45.

Pickleball is a key extension of our work to encourage healthy living throughout Baldwin County, said Dan Palmier, owner of ONE CLUB Gulf Shores. The addition of our new courts is another way for ONE CLUB to help area residents remain active, make new friends, and build lasting memories.

The Pickleball courts further position ONE CLUB˜s lifestyle offerings as the best in Gulf Shores. Other health and wellness amenities include a spacious new fitness facility with top-of-the-line Peloton exercise bikes and strength and cardiovascular equipment, located in the 15,000-square-foot Clubhouse.
