Pickleball, the quickly growing racket sport, is coming to the Toon Town building in Talleyrand.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports Jax Pickleball and European Street Cafe owner Andy Zarka, along with three business and pickleball partners Ricky Thais, JT Rhodes and Richard Parkes, propose adding two pickleball courts in the warehouse at 444 Talleyrand Ave. near TIAA Bank Field.

It will be the area’s first indoor facility that is played on outdoor-style courts. 

Zarka said there are indoor courts at the YMCA and several churches. Those are wooden gym floors and with an indoor pickleball court. 

Like outdoor courts, the Toon Town facility will be concrete, but under cover and shielded from the elements.
