Diadem partners with Broward College on indoor pickleball facility
Aug 01, 2023
Diadem recently opened an indoor 9-court pickleball facility in Coconut Creek in partnership with Broward College. Offering structured open play, clinics, tournaments, leagues and social events, the new Diadem Pickleball Complex welcomes players of all skill levels.
Michael Manglardi, Co-Founder of Diadem, extended an invite to Florida Tennis to attend the grand opening. It was quite an event. The party was buzzing with anticipation and the place was packed. A live deejay pumped up the volume as attendees flooded in and socialized during the festivities.
"We're a Florida-based company in the middle of one of the best pickleball communities in the world. We couldn't think of a better location for our flagship pickleball complex,” explained Manglardi.
To amplify the social nature of the sport, Diadem decided to include a stylish indoor lounge overlooking the courts. While watching pickleball, patrons can enjoy a variety of snacks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and (on special occasions) food trucks.
Diadem credits Broward College, known for their creativity in partnering with local businesses, as playing a key role in making this unique project happen. In turn, the new pickleball facility will also offer special programming and discounts to students and faculty at Broward College.
The Diadem Pickleball Complex is located at 1000 Coconut Creek Boulevard, Coconut Creek, FL 33066 and is open to the public seven days a week from 7am to 10pm.
