Halcyon perfect Pickleball partner as numbers surge for Brisbane Doubles Open
One of Australia’s most awarded developers of over 50s lifestyle communities, Halcyon, and the world’s fastest growing sport, Pickleball, have joined forces to help grow the game in the ‘Florida’ of Australia, South East Queensland.
The doubles pairing are a perfect match as Halcyon has come onboard as the Pickleball Brisbane Doubles Open (BDO) major sponsor, as well as being strong advocates for the game at a grassroots level.
The sponsorship of the BDO comes on the back of playing an active role in growing the sport by building Australia’s first purpose-built pickleball court at Halcyon Glades in 2015 and then Australia’s largest purpose-built pickleball complex at Halcyon Greens in 2018.
In addition to building courts, Halcyon homeowners and staff have also developed a Pickleball Coaching Program with Australia’s first Professional Pickleball Coach Keith Bing.
“Halcyon has taken a leading role in helping to grow the profile and popularity of the world’s fastest growing – and most addictive – sport in the world,” Keith said.
“Their investment in building pickleball courts at their new communities is a huge commitment of faith in the sport and the benefits it brings to players of all ages.
“Registrations for the Pickleball Brisbane Doubles Open are surging and it is going to be a fantastic event, so don’t miss out.”
Keith has provided countless hours of tuition to Halcyon homeowners and staff which resulted in a men’s doubles gold medal win at the 2019 Australian Pickleball Championships.
Halcyon also instituted Australia’s first Festival of Pickleball in 2019 which featured the appearance of US Champions and 'First Family' of Pickleball, the Elliott family.
