Have you heard of Chicken N Pickle? The new outdoor / indoor entertainment venue is in the emerging entertainment district in North Kansas City at 18th and Burlington, just one mile from our very own senior living apartments project, Gardens at Northgate Village. Yaeger staff and guests gathered over the weekend to try what many people are calling America’s fastest growing sport.
Pickleball is a sport in which two, three, or four players use paddles to hit a perforated plastic ball over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications.
Chicken N Pickle features a restaurant, 8 pickleball courts (4 indoor and 4 outdoor), a bar and entertainment space, outdoor lawn games, and a living room with fire pits and TV screens. The Yaeger team had a blast trying out the game, learning the rules, and sharing a meal together. Many of us can see why pickleball is gaining popularity and plan to return to hone our new skills.
