Tyco Road warehouse in Tysons gets pitch for pickleball courts

Pickleball courts are being considered for a warehouse at 8520 Tyco Road (via Google Maps)

Pickleball courts may be in store for a warehouse on Tyco Road, a still-industrial section of the Tysons West neighborhood.

A new commercial building permit application was submitted to Fairfax County on March 16, calling for a one-story addition with six pickleball courts at 8520 Tyco Road.

At this point, the facility exists more in theory than reality. A leasing contact for the 90,000-square-foot property confirmed that the owner is “entertaining” the idea of pickleball, but no lease has been signed yet.

The contact said they couldn’t otherwise comment, including on what company made the offer.

Just northeast of the Spring Hill Metro station, the surrounding area is dominated by warehouses and auto dealerships, with minimal green space beyond the small Great Lawn Park behind the Adaire apartments.

However, the adjacent strip of warehouses fronted by a Tesla dealership counts a crossfit gym and Tysons Playground Fitness & Performance Center among its other clients, suggesting an indoor pickleball facility may not be out of place.

Currently, the closest option for pickleball players appears to be the EastBoro Sport Court at 8251 Greensboro Street, where DC Fray will set up portable nets for an inaugural summer pickleball league. The league, which is already filled up, is scheduled to kick off on June 28.

The Fairfax County Park Authority now has 74 pickleball courts, as of last November. A study launched in 2020 found a need for more facilities to accommodate demand for the sport and reduce conflicts with tennis players, but the prospect of new courts has proven divisive in residential neighborhoods, where noise complaints have proliferated.
