Founder & CEO

Our Story

Social, uplifting, simple to learn, and endlessly fun were just a few of the reasons Rt. 12 Pickle owner Ben Minsk
fell in love with the sport of pickleball. 


What began as a casual invitation from a friend to hit a few (pickle) balls, quickly turned into a healthy obsession with the incredibly magnetic sport and an opportunity for a new kind of club in Worcester County. 


While community courts are a great
place to start and play on sunny days,
Ben envisioned a dedicated, year-round community for local pickleball lovers to play, gather, and learn in a climate-controlled, welcoming setting.
The goal was to replicate the tennis club experience, but exclusively for pickleball fans.


With eight indoor pickleball courts, an on-site area serving beer and wine, and group and private lessons, clinics, and leagues, Rt. 12 Pickle is ready to welcome you to our thriving, passionate, pickleball community!
