9179 Red Branch Road is a one-story building containing approximately 60,000 square feet of flex/industrial space. The building is within close proximity to Md. Routes 29, 100 and 108 and about 3 miles from Interstate 95.

Dill Dinkers is expected to be open this fall. It will offer drop-in play, leagues and tournaments on six indoor pickleball courts and private lessons will be offered from a team of certified professionals. Activities will be separated into men’s, women’s, co-ed and youth categories at different skill levels. In lieu of an onsite restaurant amenity, a rotation of local food trucks will provide freshly-prepared meals in an array of different cuisines.
