Inside Sure Shot Pickleball

As fervor for the fastest-growing sport in America continues apace, private developers and park districts are racing to build more pickleball courts to satisfy the paddled masses. Especially as the coming cold weather will put players in something of a climate-induced pickle. Enter Sure Shot Pickleball (4422 Corporate Ln., Naperville), a pickler’s paradise featuring 11 indoor courts—as well as changing areas, a lounge, pro shop, and private-event space—in a former trampoline park on Naperville’s north side near I-88 and Route 59. The facility will host tournaments, leagues, and lessons as well.
