An entrepreneurial, pickleball-playing couple and a group of private investors have signed a lease with May | Riegler Properties for 15,000 square feet of space at 9179 Red Branch Road in Columbia, MD. As a result, Dill Dinkers, the first dedicated indoor pickleball facility in Howard County, will open this fall.
The property is a one-story building containing 60,000 square feet of flex/industrial space. Bill Harrison and Eric Skogmo of Lee & Associates represented the tenant.
“My wife and I were playing pickleball in a converted horse arena in PA that lacked heat and proper restrooms during the middle of the winter and place was packed with participants,” said tenant Will Richards. “After conducting research about the sport and available indoor facilities both locally and nationally, we focused our real estate search in the Howard County region.”
Dill Dinkers will offer drop-in play, leagues and tournaments, education and fun programming on six indoor pickleball courts.
