First indoor pickleball facility opens in La Grange as sport gains popularity
29 Jun 2023
An office building owned by Randy and Billie Hayes sat empty off DW Griffith Lane in La Grange, KY.
They hadn’t received a call to fill the space for months, so they began racking their brains for ways to get use out of the facility.
Then it clicked – they could build something that filled a want in their own life.
“We had just started playing pickleball,” Randy said. “And I thought ‘You know what, there’s nowhere in Oldham County that has an indoor court. Let’s try it.’”
So they hired Tennis Technology to build a professional-quality, regulation-sized pickleball court in the building’s back room and began renting it out by the hour to the public.
