The iconic Miami Marine Stadium on Virginia Key is being turned into a pickler’s dream come true. With Biscayne Bay as a backdrop, workers are busy setting up stages, a vendors’ village, and 50 pickleball courts where that unmistakable “pop, pop, pop” sound of the fastest-growing sport in America will be heard.

“The VIP section will have a DJ all weekend and places to relax right on the beach,” said Michelle Beauchamp, chief marketing director of Eleven Vodka, the VIP sponsor. The signature drink, she said, is the “Pickler”, made with vodka, cucumber tonic, strawberry syrup, lime juice, and garnished with pickle olives.
