Indoor Pickleball Center is Coming to the Former Shore Mall in Atlantic City

What once was a bustling little mall has been reimagined and will once again be full of activity.

ProShot Pickleball will be building a state-of-the-art indoor pickleball facility in the space previously occupied by Burlington Coat Factory. The sports complex is expected to be ready for play by late fall/early winter 2022.

Andy Pessano, along with Dan Wach and Dean Tridente, is spearheading this project. He has been playing pickleball for six years and runs the Landing Creek Pickleball, a sports retail store in Ocean City, as well as Pessano Variety, a general store on the corner of 3rd and Atlantic on the same island.

“We announced the concept at the Funky Pickle event in Ventnor this past weekend,” said Pessano. “We spent about six months looking for a location, then worked on the design, and now we are getting permits and beginning to build.”

The ProShot Pickleball facility will house eight, full-length courts, a cafe with premade, healthy meal options, locker rooms, a retail store, and a 1000 square foot lounge for athletes to meet up and unwind after a game. Pessano said that the facility will use a new patented sport flooring that will be easy on players’ joints, separating the complex from any other indoor pickleball space in the tri-state area.
