Pickleball Anyone?

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the world right now, so it’s no surprise that it’s been a huge hit on Nantucket (pun intended). There are several courts on-island, but the only courts open to the public are at the Nantucket Racquet Sports Association (NRSA) at 82 Hinsdale Road, not far from the airport.

The NRSA boasts four brand-new pickleball courts and four platform tennis courts–all equipped with lights so you can play well past sunset (which will come in handy when the sun sets earlier in the winter). There is also a hut on campus with two restrooms, a kitchen, and a lounge complete with a working fireplace.

NRSA is open to the public and the drop-in/guest fee is $10/person. You also have the option of joining the association for a $336 annual fee (first family member) and $175 (second member). Joining gives you the eligibility to book courts online or via the app. Membership is required if you’d like to compete in club tournaments.

Nantucket has been a constant in Quinn’s life since he was born, but it was working here through high school, college, and beyond that fueled his love for the island. A native of nowhere, Quinn was born in DC, grew up in Chicago and Cleveland, and earned his degree in Economics at Colorado State University. Working summers on ACK at Nectars, various bars and restaurants, fishing boats, and building homes he got a “real job” working in the financial sector for a year when he got a call from Fisher co-founder, Cam, who offered him a job at Vineyard Vines. Starting off in sales and developing the direct-to-consumer business, Quinn was then recruited to run sales nationally for johnnie-O which was still in its infancy. He opened and ran the sales office from Greenwich, CT for nearly a decade consistently delivering results. Recognizing early on that no one wants to be sold anything helped Quinn differentiate himself in sales roles as someone who finds the best outcomes by achieving mutually beneficial results. True partnerships rooted in communication, honesty, integrity, and loyalty are the hallmarks of his work ethic. Quinn lives on Nantucket with his amazing wife, Graham, three beautiful daughters and their lab mix, Rhody. He enjoys spending quality time with family, racquet sports, fishing, biking, and is trying to find enjoyment in running.
