Former Ventnor WAWA Reborn as Indoor Pickleball Court

Around 5 years ago, retired Ventnor fireman, Bill Lacovara discovered pickleball. It’s one of America’s fastest growing sports.

A few years later, Lacovera decided to invest in his favorite sport.


He acquired the former WAWA on Dorset Ave and converted the property into an indoor pickleball court.

  1. Hi Bill. I love playing in your indoor court! I am still not sure how to organize a game and find three more players. I want to play the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 26th. I can play at any time. I am an advanced beginner player. How would that work? Thanks! Lori

    1. Perhaps you should call the venue and ask? Or email them? Guessing they aren’t handling scheduling via replies to an article about them…
