Through the doors, you’ll find professional courts, tournaments, leagues for all skill levels, and open play daily. There are also private instruction options, individual & family memberships available, and courts can be rented through the mobile app.
The Jackson Chamber sat down with Crossroads Pickleball partner, Stu Kail to learn more about the new facility:
Why did you open Crossroads Pickleball?
We have played pickleball for some time and dreamed of an indoor, dedicated pickleball space to play. Ironically, one weekend we independently all had the idea of inquiring about the facility at Keeley Park (formally known as the American 1 Center). Over the course of meetings with the Parks Department leadership and board, as well as other boards and committees, we were able to finalize a 5-year agreement to lease the space from the County. We have six courts inside the building, all accessible through an app to reserve a time to play.
Who owns Crossroad Pickleball?
There are three partners involved; Brent Hall, John Butterfield, and Stu Kail.
What if someone doesn’t know how to play pickleball yet, but wants to learn. Do you have resources available?
Yes! We were all beginners at one point so we’re excited to teach the community about this contagious, fun sport. We will have multiple options for people to learn the game. These options can be found on our website at crossroadspickleball.com.
What leagues do you have available, and how does someone join?
We will be launching leagues soon! To learn more information about our leagues, please follow us on Facebook or Instagram (@crossroadspickleball). Leagues will be for both individuals as well as teams.
What if I don’t have a partner – can I find one on site?
Yes! A significant amount of our programming will be “open play”, meaning you can just show up and play!
Are there any special instructions needed to access the mobile app?
Before you can play at Crossroads, you’ll need to go to crossroadspickleball.com and create a profile. By creating a profile, you digitally sign our release form as well as understand the rules for the facility. Once you’re signed up, you can choose to reserve a court, signup to play or to join a league (when available). Additionally, we have multiple membership levels available that give you access to open play options as well as discounted play.
