Play, Eat and Gather at ACES Pickleball + Kitchen in Norwood

ACES features 11 courts, both indoor and outdoor, as well as a full-service kitchen and bar, firepits and even a dog park.

A new spot to play one of America’s fastest-growing sports is now open in Norwood.

ACES Pickleball + Kitchen at Factory 52 will hold its grand opening celebration Saturday, June 10. The new, state-of-the-art pickleball complex features 11 cushion-based courts designed for all skill levels – both indoor and outdoor. Guests can reserve a court on ACES’ website for $7.50 an hour. ACES also rents out paddles for $5 a person and ball machines for $32.50 an hour.

This past weekend, ACES also opened its full-service restaurant and bar. The menu features dishes crafted with local and seasonal ingredients from regional farmers, artisans and producers. You can try elevated bar-fare appetizers like their brown sugar- and citrus-brined wings; loaded nachos topped with white queso, pickled jalapenos, cilantro, pico de gallo and lime crema; and a plate of Greek olives served with whipped feta and slice baguette.

ACES also serves a range of sandwiches, bowls and salads all day, and main plates like the New York strip steak or herb-roasted salmon are available for dinner starting at 5 p.m.

At the bar, you’ll find a selection of wines, beer – including some local craft brews – and cocktails. You can also try the house shot, Drop Shot, crafted with Jameson and – what else but – pickle juice.

In addition to its courts, bar and restaurant, ACES also aims to just be a place to gather, with firepits, a slew of TVs, ping-pong tables, corn hole and even a dog park.

The grand opening Saturday is taking place from 4-10 p.m. There will be live music, a DJ and drink specials. You can also partake in mini pickleball clinics and giveaways and watch the featured pro match.
