Swing Racquet + Paddle — an under construction “sportstainment” complex serving up tennis, pickleball, padel, ping pong, and beach tennis — recently announced collaborations with three major industry leaders.

Wilson Sporting Goods, a sports equipment manufacturer based in Chicago, will open a brick-and-mortar retail shop for multi-racket sports, complete with a Wilson Stringing Bar for tennis rackets. The Swing campus will also be a testing ground for Wilson’s new technology-driven experiences including AR, VR, and gamification.

Stockholm-based Good to Great Tennis Academy is bringing its tennis training to Raleigh, establishing its North American presence. The program has coached players like Maria Sakkari, currently ranked No. 8 in the world, and three-time Grand Slam winner Stan Wawrinka.

Foodies, get ready. Celebrity chef Fabio Viviani is joining Swing to lead its food and beverage program. The “Top Chef” star will create a menu featuring shareable, “better-for-you” dishes with high-quality ingredients.
