Combining tennis, badminton, and pingpong, pickleball is booming as a team-building activity for groups around the country. Here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, several top-notch pickleball clubs are available and offer group rentals.

Lucky Shots Pickleball Club in Minneapolis boasts eight indoor courts that are open year-round. The club, with its state-of-the-art cushioned court surface, can also create group events focused on team building.

Legacy Pickleball Club opened a second Twin Cities location in Woodbury this past April (the other location is in Hopkins). The new club has six outdoor courts and plays host to events and tournaments.

Smash Park will debut in Roseville this fall. The club, which is already popular in Des Moines, Iowa, will provide modern pickleball facilities, equipment, and coaching—in addition to chef-crafted food and unique cocktails.
