Courtside Kitchen, a new food & pickleball concept, will debut in Fort Worth in the summer of 2021Fort Worth, TX ( Fort Worth will have a new place to eat, drink, and be active in late summer. The Courtside Kitchen on I-30 and University Drive offers over 7,500 square feet of indoor and 23,500 square feet of outdoor dining, entertainment, and family fun. Courtside Kitchen is Fort Worth’s first dedicated pickleball facility and is the perfect place for those who enjoy fine food, craft cocktails, and an energetic atmosphere.

The menu was created by Executive Chef Christian Lehrmann, a veteran of Fort Worth-Dallas restaurants such as Tinie’s Mexican Cuisine, The Porch, and CBD Provisions at the Joule Hotel. It contains products that will satisfy your hunger at any time of the day. Familiar but fun meals range from poke bowls to hot Nashville-style chicken sandwiches to flat iron chimichurri steak and french fries.

“We want to offer items that you normally long for, but that you reinvent in new and entertaining ways,” explains Lehrmann. “Both the menu and the drinks menu will be varied and interesting. Everyone will have fun with us! “

The Courtside Kitchen also serves playful and inventive craft cocktails, a wide selection of draft and local beers, and extensive wine and tequila lists. On Saturdays and Sundays, the chef-inspired brunch starters and specialty drinks are offered.

While Courtside Kitchen’s menu offerings are reason enough to stop off, the sport of pickleball has captured the hearts of the active Fort Worth community. Often described as a combination of tennis and table tennis, the pickleball game offers players of all skill levels and generations the opportunity to have a great time together. Part of the charm of Pickleball is how easy and fun it is to learn and how much laughter can be heard on and around the square.

“As America’s fastest growing sport, Pickleball has really taken Fort Worth by storm,” said Zach Nichols, Fort Worth Pickleball league coordinator. “We have over 200 players competing in the women’s and mixed leagues this spring, and it’s just our first season!”

Even on colder days, Courtside Kitchen keeps guests warm with outdoor fire pits.

“All I know is that Fort Worth loves to have a great time! We saw the need for a fun and exciting place where people could be active and social at the same time, ”said Matt L. Johnson, Equity Partner and Owner / Operator. “Courtside Kitchen will be unique in a way that only Fort Worth can be. It will be a lively and fun place to bring your family, meet your friends after work, or even exercise! “

When completed, Courtside Kitchen will create 40 new jobs in Fort Worth and will be open seven days a week.
