FOLEY, AL – OWA Parks and Resort is continuing to expand its Downtown OWA offerings with plans to add four indoor pickleball courts. The new addition will capitalize on the rapidly growing pickleball trend and provide an opportunity to enhance an existing space across from the OWA Theater.
The handicap-accessible facility is set to include seating areas and lockers, with apparel, snacks and beverages available to guests. Optional membership will allow for 24-hour access. The $600,000 project is set to open in February 2024.
“Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States, and we are thrilled to bring this new offering to Downtown OWA,” said Cody Williamson, President/CEO Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority. “This new indoor entertainment option allows OWA to add community-focused recreational activities for all ages.”
Guests will have the ability to reserve courts online. Future plans include pickleball tournaments and the addition of a certified pickleball instructor to teach those interested in learning to play.
