You've probably seen how Pickleball 901 has been introducing the fastest growing sport around the city with past pop-ups at local breweries like Wiseacre, Memphis Made, and Grind City. The next on Beale Street is likely to be their biggest yet.

The event, which takes place on the first 2023 Grizzlies home pre-season game, is a celebration of the "vibrant soul of Memphis."

The event will feature music, food, drinks, and a unique Memphis ambiance.

"We expect special guests, door prizes, and all the pickleball your blue suede shoes can possibly handle," Adam Clay, founder of Pickleball 901, said in a release.

For pickleball newbies, the event will include free instruction on a dedicated instructional court throughout the day because what's a cooler way to learn than with Beale Street as your backdrop.

Hello! I'm Jalyn Souchek, the Director of Content for I Love Memphis Blog! I love calling the 901 home. When I'm not running the blog you can find me cheering on the Grizzlies, at a concert, exploring a new restaurant or kicking back at one of our breweries. I hope you'll love experiencing Memphis with me.

Build your perfect Memphis meal:

I love to eat so if I were to have only one meal left.. I’m going all out. I’d start with an app of Gumbo Fries from Blue City Cafe or Bayou Fries from Chef Tam, wings from Good Fortune or Central’s (honey gold and Jamaican Jerk), potato salad from Fat Larry’s, side of bbq spaghetti from Bar-B-Q Shop, and fried okra from Soul Fish. All paired with a Beale Street Brewing Space Age Sippin’.

Your most memorable Memphis moment:

College GameDay on Beale Street. That was an electric and perfect morning. I was still working in news then and was able to take it in up close and on the stage at some points. The fun and joy of everyone down there that morning is unbeatable.
