Brookhaven Country Club Undergoing Major Transformation Ahead of 2023 USA Pickleball National Championships

DALLAS - A multi-million dollar investment by Invited will transform Brookhaven Country Club into a first-class racquet club with 68 tennis, pickleball and padel courts. The project is underway and will be completed ahead of the 2023 USA Pickleball National Championships, presented by PPA Tour, to be held Nov. 5-12. The event will kick-off on Nov. 5 with clinics and other activities, while tournament competition will officially begin on Nov. 6. 

The $5 million investment includes creating a pickleball center featuring a state-of-the-art play area. The USA Pickleball National Championships, the largest-ever pickleball tournament, will host an expanded field of more than 4,000 amateur and professional players competing on up to 100 pickleball courts.

The renovations represent a significant investment in Dallas’ racquet sports community and continue to solidify Invited’s commitment to encouraging the remarkable growth of pickleball, America’s fastest-growing sport.

“We continue to see incredible growth in the game across our nationwide portfolio of clubs. Invited has made strategic and substantial investments in creating world-class pickleball facilities for our members and its capabilities of hosting the highest level of professional pickleball events,” said Invited CEO David Pillsbury. “We’re looking forward to working with USA Pickleball, PPA, and our partners, creating an unforgettable sporting and entertainment experience for the city of Farmers Branch and thousands of fans.”

Upon completion of the project in October, Brookhaven Country Club will feature 28 permanent outdoor pickleball courts, four of which are covered, along with new fencing with a lower height between courts, new lighting pole placement with new LED lights, new court surfaces and new pickleball net systems that will further improve the overall playing experience. New landscaping and enhanced member and player hospitality areas are also in the works.

Previously announced upgrades for Nationals include designating the street outside of Brookhaven Country Club as “Pickleball Boulevard” to make space for nightly musical performances and family-friendly activities with sponsors and local businesses during the event. The estimated economic impact of this week-long pickleball festival is expected to hit $10 million.

Nationals feature the largest prize purse in tournament history, promising to turn the Brookhaven community into the biggest pickleball party of all time with a unique blend of entertainment and culinary celebrations to create unforgettable memories for players and an estimated 25,000 spectators. 

“With Invited’s substantial investment, Brookhaven will be a spectacular venue for this historic tournament. The significant number of permanent pickleball courts available year-round is outstanding for the sport’s local growth,” said Connor Pardoe, CEO of the PPA Tour. “We cannot wait to showcase the incredible upgrades to the players and fans. The atmosphere for Nationals will be off the charts, and we are excited to continue to work with our partners as we look to grow the event year after year.”

"As we work with the PPA, Invited, and our partners to present the premier tournament in pickleball, I am pleased to see Invited's significant investment into our sport . We are confident that this will create a best-in-class facility for the 2023 USA Pickleball National Championships and future tournaments,” said Robert Quicksilver, USA Pickleball Board Chair. “Invited and Brookhaven Country Club's commitment to pickleball was a key factor in our decision to bring the crown jewel of our sport to Dallas. All of us at USA Pickleball look forward to seeing how these renovations and upgrades will further elevate this year's player and fan experience."
