What do you get if you mix tennis, badminton and table tennis? Pickleball apparently. Despite having been around since the 1960s, the racket sport has surged in popularity recently and one hotel that has smartly tapped into the trend is Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, which has partnered with JetSet Pickleball to launch a lavish sports getaway package.

Inviting private groups of eight pickleball enthusiasts (or novices) to descend on the five-star Mexico resort, the $56k package includes four days of daily instruction and gameplay.

A pickleball expert leads each session; JetSet Pickleball has partnered with some of the sport’s leading names to ensure top-of-the-range coaching. A sampling of coaches includes the ninth-highest ranked pickleball player in the world Travis Rettenmeier, and coach to the stars and pickleball commentator, Matt Manassee, with guests invited to a welcome dinner with their coach to kick off the experience.

It’s not all on-court action though. The package also includes four night’s accommodation in one of Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit’s slick ocean-view suites, each offering over 1,000 sq ft of luxurious private space.

Guests are also privy to a host of extras, including pre-and post-game food and drinks, such as a cocktail hour with Clase Azul Tequila, a sunset sail and dinner aboard a luxury yacht through the picturesque Bay of Banderas, a la carte meals at the resort’s four signature restaurants, round-the-clock in-suite service, premium beverages, and return airport transfers.

To soothe tired muscles, guests of Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit’s pickleball package can also indulge in a massage at the SE Spa, and daily access to the hydrotherapy circuit (don’t miss the eucalyptus-scented steam room, peppermint ice fountain or hot and cold lagoons). A trip to your local Pickleball court will dull in comparison from now on.
