Hornig Capital Partners and Sportime Pickleball to Open $2.5M Facility in Westbury

Hornig Capital Partners, a Long Island-based real estate developer, is partnering with Sportime Pickleball to develop a state-of-the-art 30,000-square-foot pickleball facility in Westbury, Long Island. The $2.5 million redevelopment project, set to open in October, will feature 13 indoor pickleball courts along with various amenities including a café, pro shop, two party rooms, new locker rooms, and showers.

The new facility will be housed in three buildings on 1.6 acres at 575 Merrick Ave, which has been occupied by badminton and volleyball clubs. Hornig Capital Partners, led by principal Daren Hornig, has a diverse portfolio of office, retail, multifamily, and industrial properties. The company recently worked with Sportime on the $8 million renovations of its 200,000-square-foot Sportime John McEnroe Tennis Academy in Port Washington.

"The key is having the right operator who knows what they're doing," said Daren Hornig, principal of Hornig Capital Partners. "The reason I partnered with Sportime is that they have a 35-year track record and they know what they're doing," Hornig added.

Sportime Clubs, founded in 1994, has more than 190 indoor and outdoor tennis and pickleball courts, fitness clubs, and sports arenas at 14 locations on Long Island, New York City, Westchester County, and upstate New York. In addition to the Westbury facility, Hornig Capital Partners is poised to begin construction on three other Sportime Pickleball facilities in Armonk, Englewood, NJ, and Wayne, NJ.

The partnership between Hornig Capital Partners and Sportime Pickleball brings together a seasoned real estate developer and an established sports facility operator to capitalize on the rapidly growing popularity of pickleball. The Westbury facility aims to provide a premier destination for pickleball enthusiasts across Long Island when it opens its doors this October.
