  • Hotel and huge new pickleball and volleyball complex coming to Remington Park area

    Plans have been filed for a large recreation complex at the southeast corner of I-44 and Martin Luther King Boulevard, just north of Remington Park.

    Social Pickle founder Matt Hastings will operate a 20-court indoor/outdoor pickleball facility, as the sport continues to grow rapidly.

    It will feature a full bar, pro shop, and outdoor beer garden with a second-level terrace overlooking the outdoor courts.

    Right across the parking lot, the volleyball facility will include 10 indoor hard courts to be operated by Oklahoma Peak Performance (OP2 or Peak), in affiliation with USA Volleyball. Peak has been operating in a smaller facility and has been successful in several of its club members earning college volleyball scholarships.

    Immediately adjacent to the indoor courts, Boomtown Beach will offer both indoor and outdoor sand volleyball courts, along with a bar and cafe.

    Together, pro tournaments, recreation leagues, and other events will be hosted, attracting thousands of athletes and spectators.

    To the west will be an unnamed hotel, something long needed in the Adventure District to serve visitors coming to see the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museums, the OKC Zoo, Remington Park, several nearby museums, and the annual Women’s College World Series.

    There are four additional lots where negotiations are currently underway with restaurants and coffee shops. Andy Burnett of Burnett Equity is the developer.
