What is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.
Its can be played indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. Players use a paddle and a plastic ball with holes. It can be played as doubles or singles.
When completed, Chicken N Pickle Grand Prairie will begin hosting pickleball clinics for players at all levels, as well as professional and amateur pickleball tournaments.
The Grand Prairie location anticipates bringing hundreds of jobs to the area and will be posting open positions in early 2021. Chicken N Pickle currently has locations in Kansas City, Wichita and San Antonio, TX.
The idea was conceived in the Grand Cayman Islands over cold beer and jerk chicken. One man’s love for delicious, wood-fired chicken and the game of pickleball led to the 2016 founding of Chicken N Pickle’s flagship location in Kansas City and has quickly developed into a wildly popular destination for food and fun in other markets.
