An Indoor Pickleball Facility In Omaha Will Be Opened By The Picklr After Winning The “Picklr Your City” Contest

The Picklr, the fastest-growing pickleball facility in North America, revealed today that Omaha, Nebraska, is the “Picklr Your City” contest winner and will get a Picklr location. Pickleball fans cast over 20,000 votes for hundreds of cities across the country in a two-month online contest, hoping to get a Picklr facility in their city.

A bracket-style format eliminated the top 32 locations, and the final four cities, Anchorage, Alaska; Lake Forest, California; Quincy, Illinois; and Omaha, Nebraska, started local voting drives and media campaigns for the online contest, which Katy Perry, The Dink backed and got over 5.2 million views on social media.
