The Exchange Pickleball & Entertainment Venue 22059

One of the first pickleball venues to be built in New Orleans, The Exchange blends history with community vibrancy.

VergesRome Architects re-imagined the 24,000 SF industrial warehouse into a multi-functional,  state-of-the-art, recreational facility that now houses 6 indoor courts, 1 outdoor court, 2 bars with lounge and dining areas, a full-service kitchen, and an expansive outdoor patio lounge.

The building’s interior design is inspired by design trends from the 1960’s, when Pickleball was invented. Teal, salmon, and green hues add captivating focal points, while curvilinear millwork and vintage wood finishes further evoke the era’s style, paying homage to its timeless charm.
In contrast, the courts are simplified to light, bright walls, and vibrant court striping to assist in the visibility of the Pickleball itself.
