When we were building out the PICKLEZONE app, one of our main goals was to make playing our favorite sport worth more than just a good time and a good hour of heart-racing cardio. We wanted to create a great experience for our members and have them be able to go out into the real world and be able to benefit from incentives and earning through play.
This is why we partnered with one of the finest indoor pickleball resorts in the world, Espire Sports in beautiful Prescott, Arizona.
Why Espire Sports?
PICKLEZONE and Espire Sports wanted to offer their members the best of brick-and-mortar sports complexes and an opportunity to play and earn through the PICKLEZONE app. Our members will have access to many benefits such as:
- PICKLEZONE NFT members get a free one-year membership to the Espire complex.
- Our Genesis NFT members—the first 1,000 members of PICKLEZONE—will have access to a member-only area.
- Espire’s pro-regulation pickleball courts are registered as official play & earn courts, where members will get the added bonus of earning more than on other courts outside the complex.
- Members have the ability to purchase a variety of goods and services at the Espire location with in-app tokens.
- Membership discounts on merchandise, court rentals, and much more.
We also aim to work with Espire to coordinate tournaments and other events throughout the year for our members.
All About the Espire Venue
Espire Sports is located in Prescott, Arizona inside the Prescott Gateway Mall. The complex was founded by Scott Moore, the winningest senior pickleball player of all time and Director of Pickleball, and Jim Thomas, a licensed general contractor, and the CEO of Espire.
The complex consumes over 100,000 square feet of pickleball, sports, fitness, and wellness opportunities, and is well-known as the finest pickleball resort in the world.
The facility boasts indoor pro-regulation acrylic pickleball courts, a multi-purpose sports court, yard games, arcade, bocce ball, cornhole, ping-pong, billiards, a fitness center with rooms for yoga, aerobics, or Pilates. There are also golf simulators and a 9-hole putting green. Their members can also enjoy the pro-shop, along with locker rooms and showers.
The full-service café and juice bar inside the facility is called Third Shot. The juice bar offers fresh juices, smoothies, acai bowls, organic coffees, and a wide array of healthy snacks.
And Espire Sports is always aspiring to be better and do better for their members. Coming in 2023, the resort will open over 120 boutique style hotel rooms and suites
