We wanted to play,
not administer a schedule

When we started PingPod, we needed an easy and intuitive scheduling system so we could focus on the game instead of costly day-to-day management of our clubs. That system became PodPlay.

Today our venue business is growing fast, but our scheduling software is growing even faster. When pickleball clubs experienced PodPlay , they started asking to license the app, so we launched PodPlay in 2023 as a vertical SaaS solution for pickleball club management.

Now any pickleball business owner can offer their customers the most intuitive reservation system in the market, fully integrated with highly sought after hardware-enabled features like video replays and digital scoreboards.

Common Challenges for Pickleball Club Owners & Operators

Playing pickleball is easy and fun. Managing your club should also be rewarding.

Every pickleball business has the same frustrations:

Are you having problems staffing your pickleball club?

Staffing your club gets expensive and manual scheduling is error prone. When players walk-in or call to reserve a pickleball court, problems can occur.

Is your scheduling disorganized with an outdated pickleball reservation system?

Running your business on outdated reservation software or disorganized paper scheduling can lead to overbookings and unhappy pickleball players.

Is your inventory causing missed opportunities to generate revenue for your club?

Inventory that isn't reserved becomes a missed opportunity to generate revenue from optimized scheduling, open plays, coaching sessions, private events and other programming.

Are you having a hard time keeping your pickleball players engaged?

It's hard to keep players engaged. Having an easy, secure, mobile accessible booking experience with easily discoverable offerings that appeal to your target customers is critical.

Why We're Obsessed with Pickleball

Pickleball is fun, easy to learn, and positively addicting. It has exploded in popularity among people looking for a good workout that is safe, accessible, and social.
That is why it is the fastest-growing sport in the U.S. for the third year running, according to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA), growing 223.5% in the last three years. 13.5 million Americans gave pickleball a try last year–that is almost as many people playing America’s pastime of baseball, which had 16.7 million participants. 

  1. Pickleball is fun and builds community. The sport brings people together, with players forming friendships, having fun, and socializing around matches. The game appeals to all kinds of people and offers a mix of strategy, skill, and physical activity that is fun for different age groups and fitness levels.
  2. Pickleball is easy to learn, affordable and accessible. Unlike the steep learning curves, need for expensive equipment, and the cost of travel that other sports entail, pickleball is simple. All you need is a court, a net, a paddle, some balls, and shoes, and you are ready to play.
  3. Pickleball improves health through increased physical activity. Pickleball is a dynamic game that improves balance, hand-eye coordination, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness. It is a low-impact way to stay active, ideal for those recovering from injuries or with limited mobility.
