Daniel Nabedrick (pictured on the right) played tennis at the highest level throughout his collegiate years. But, he recently picked up a new racquet (a "paddle" for pickleball to be exact) and is now the owner of the Premier Pickleball Club, based in Brooklyn Park. His goal is to grow the 16-court indoor facility into a 36-court indoor/outdoor facility to accommodate the growing interest, passion and demand for the paddle sport and social phenomenon of pickleball.
“Two hundred and fifty million people in the world are playing a racquet sport, with the largest growing sector by far being pickleball,” said Nabedrick. “Twenty percent of the population can play tennis. Eighty percent can succeed playing pickleball. Who doesn’t like to whack a ball?”
Nabedrick looks to create a facility that is inclusive and builds community for people of all demographics, age and ability. He has engaged tennis pro Patrik Segfeldt as director of the Pickleball Club as well as being the hands-on instructor for those who play regularly and drop-in players, there to check out the sport.

Play options include:
- Open Play for both Pickleball & Tennis from 9am-10pm Monday-Sunday
- Seasonal & Year-Round Unlimited Open Play Patron Passes for both Pickleball & Tennis
- Group, Private & Semi Private Pickleball & Tennis Lessons for both Juniors and Adults
- League Play, Tournament Play, and Camps for both Juniors and Adults
While Premier Pickleball may be the largest indoor facility in the state, the thing that sets them apart is their professional coach on the courts, helping out as needed and insuring that your game is fun.
Another difference? In early February, Premier launched a house band, “The Dude Bro Trio Blue Grass Jam Band”, to play from 7-10 p.m. every Thursday night.
