Lifestyle Out of the Kitchen! The Best Condos with Pickleball and Padel Courts in Miami
Miami is known for its riveting blend of cultures, active lifestyles, a deep love of sport, and for embracing the curated and curious. Nothing sums up this concept more than the growing popularity of padel and pickleball. At this point, you’re probably either saying, “Yes! I love playing them both,” or “A what ball? A cucumber and gherkin game? What the hell are you talking about?” Truth is pickleball has taken America by storm. It’s the fastest growing sport in the U.S. for the fifth consecutive year in a row, after being created near Seattle in 1965. And padel has long been a community racquet sport in Europe, after the first official courts opened in Marbella, Spain in 1974 (but it was created by Mexican Enrique Corcuera in 1969). And we can attest to the fun and addictive nature of both of these petite iterations of tennis—several members of our top Miami real estate brokerage play padel and pickleball!
