Pickleball is a fast-growing sport in the U.S. among those 55+. This is due to the social aspect of the game in combination with the shorter court and quick play. Kolter Homes embraces this sport throughout its age-targeted communities by building pickleball courts and hosting games and tournaments.
The Cresswind Georgia at Twin Lakes Pickleball Center in Hoschton, Georgia is the most expansive of the Kolter Homes complexes. Currently, 21 of the more than 40 planned pickleball courts are completed, as well as an “Eagle’s Nest” spectators pavilion for easy viewing. Serving as the community’s signature, the Cresswind Georgia Pickleball Center is estimated to be the largest private pickleball complex in Georgia and one of the largest in the Southeast.
Kolter Homes recently brought together 200+ pickleball players from seven Cresswind and Kolter communities across four states at its inaugural Cresswind Cup at this phenomenal center. This team event featured more than 400 matches throughout the weekend.
This year’s winning team was PGA Village Verano from Port St. Lucie, Florida. As the overall team champion, PGA Village Verano now displays the Cresswind Cup trophy in its community clubhouse until next year’s competition.
“The great thing about this is the fact that we can bring these Cresswind and Kolter communities together for friendly competition in a social setting and that really encompasses what our lifestyle program is all about with fitness, relationships, education and entertainment,” Mark LaClaire, director of lifestyle for Kolter Homes, said. “It’s such an amazing way to incorporate everything Cresswind is about, and it was great seeing residents from different states meeting, creating connections and even planning to get together at one another’s communities for more fun in the future.”
“The courts are beautiful, the layout is great and when you build the additional courts, it’ll be an even more amazing place for tournaments,” Cresswind Charleston team captain and resident Steve DiPinto said. “The layout here is so great because it encourages each level to play their best even if they can’t win the cup as a team. It creates great comradery to do well and possibly bring the banner back to their community and that’s what makes it so exciting and competitive – in a fun way!”
