About Swing

Challenging the status quo.

Located in the heart of the Triangle, our 45-acre campus features Tennis, Pickleball, Padel, Beach Tennis, and Table Tennis bringing the community together around our passion for racquet + paddle sports. Swing will offer both indoor and covered courts as well as 30k sq ft of fitness facilities coupled with onsite physical therapy, sports medicine, and sports science, connecting-the-dots between sport, health, and innovation.

Our vision doesn’t stop there. By offering more court diversity than any other facility in the country we plan on putting the Triangle region on the map as a world-class destination for not only national but international tournament events. With ample spaces to relax, watch, or socialize in our onsite “Sportstainment” attraction, we’re focused on igniting the racquet + paddle community in the Triangle and beyond.

FAQ

A:  We’ve got an incredible agency helping us develop the online and print messaging that will best depict our mission and vision. Once we were down to a handful of great options, we engaged the community and got their feedback. In everything we do, we’re swinging a racquet or a paddle, it was a no brainer.

A:  Yes, same company and same leadership team. Triangle Racquet Sports was the legal entity, but the brand name is Swing Racquet + Paddle. Thank you to the village of supporters that helped us select our new name, it was a fun process!

A:  As they say, Rome was not built in a day! Our goals are lofty and creating a seismic shift in the tennis and racquet sport industry requires a great deal of patience and determination. The key drivers in a brief delay from the original target opening date are:

  • Delivering Wake County a host site for international, national and regional tournaments and events. With the potential support of the Interlocal Fund, we have painstakingly planned to expand the infrastructure & design of the campus to become a destination to host major tournaments and pro events.
  • Addressing the demand of pickleball. Since our journey began a few years back, pickleball has grown from 400 players in our community to now over 4,000! Swing Racquet + Paddle will be home to one of the largest pickleball facilities in the country, offering 28 dedicated courts plus a show court to host tournaments at a national scale.
  • Expanding our scope of the sports we offer the community. As the name states “Swing Racquet + Paddle” is not just for tennis enthusiasts anymore! We have added several exciting sports to our campus to better serve the community to include Padel (fastest growing sport in the world!), beach tennis, and beach volleyball.
  • Adding a destination “Sportstainment” restaurant to better serve our multi-racquet sport community and our guests for tournaments & events.

A:  Our talented team of designers, engineers, architects, and builders are confident we will have a grand opening in the first quarter of 2022. You will start to see earth moving and construction begin the second half of 2020.

A:  Details of the model and pricing are still underway, but Swing will be very approachable. We’ll have individual and family memberships along with pay to play options. We’re also building a portion of the campus that will be available, free of charge, to the public.

A:  Easy, plug in your information on this site to subscribe and we will keep you posted. You can also follow us on your favorite social media platform.
