DENVER — Denver pickleball lovers will soon have a new place to play.
Punch Bowl Social founder Robert Thompson plans to open his latest venture, Camp Pickle, in Globeville’s Fox Park development in 2025. Camp Pickle will include as many as 15 pickleball courts for fans of the sport to play on, as well as food, beverages and other entertainment options for guests.
Last September, Thompson announced the first Camp Pickle that will open in Centennial in 2024. About two months ago, Thompson met with Jose Carredano, managing partner of Fox Park’s Pure Development team.
"The idea that we could bring this real comprehensive eatertainment lifestyle brand to life at Fox Park was kind of too good for us to pass on, and so we put a deal together," Thompson said.
