Atlanta, GA, July 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

It’s the fastest growing sport in America, and pickleball enthusiasts now have a way to invest in the game. Competitive Social Ventures, founder of the Pickle and Social pickleball eatertainment brand, is inviting qualified investors to join them.

On June 1, 2023, CSV announced the opening of its Series B investment raise, which will fund the next 11 of its three best-in-class eatertainment destinations: Pickle and Social, Fairway Social and Roaring Social.

The 11 new destinations are being built in major markets across the U.S., including Texas (2), Louisville, Scottsdale, Alpharetta, Florida and South Carolina, with land already secured and ready for build out. They include:

  • Seven Pickle and Social Venues - featuring world class indoor and outdoor pickleball courts and in most cases 4 Fairway simulator luxury bays plus craft food, signature drinks, and live entertainment
  • Two Fairway Social Venues – indoor/outdoor eatertainment venues featuring virtual and simulated games of football, golf, soccer and carnival games plus craft food and drinks

CSV is also offering accredited local investors in select Pickle & Social markets, starting with Louisville, KY; Scottsdale, AZ, and Alpharetta, GA, the opportunity to invest in individual Pickle & Social venues. As the fastest growing sport in America, there is tremendous interest among investors to have a financial stake in the pickleball game. Pickle & Social offers them an opportunity to invest in a best-in-class concept that offers pickleball and so much more.

"We've built a lifestyle brand that goes beyond pickleball, offering 10 different experiences you can enjoy without even picking up a paddle,” said Brian Harper, SVP of Sales & Marketing for CSV. “With world-class facilities and a range of activities like live music, corn hole, and ping pong, we will attract people from all walks of life. And our expertise in Food and Beverage allows us to keep the experience fresh and exciting.
