A 29,000-square-foot industrial building, formerly occupied by The Moorland Tennis and Pickleball Club, just west of South Moreland Road in New Berlin, could soon be used as a new facility for indoor sports, including Futsal.

The Moorland Tennis and Pickleball Club closed last year and the building was sold.

The property, located at 2900 S. 163rd St., was recently leased by GWI Ventures LLC, according to a news release from Founders 3 Real Estate Services.

Brett Deter and Scott Revolinski of Founders 3 represented the building’s owner, LCM Funds 50 Tennis LLC, which is a subsidiary of Milwaukee-based LCM Funds Real Estate Services LLC.

GWI Ventures aims to expand opportunities for youth and adult sports in southeastern Wisconsin, according to the release. The company plans to develop a “premier indoor sport court facility” with league play, training space for club teams, court rentals and youth programming.

The facility would house sports that require large amounts of space and high ceilings such as volleyball, but GWI also plans to use the space for youth and adult Futsal, which is similar to soccer.

GWI Ventures LLC is registered under Ivan Petrovic, who could not immediately be reached for comment.
