2nd Annual Pickleball Expo - Harbor Lakes RV Resort

Each year the ELS (Equity Life Styles) RV communities in South/Central Florida provide an Expo for all members/residents.  This includes a variety of activities, and in 2012, Pickleball was added to the host of events. This is the second year that the Harbor Lakes RV Resort in Port Charlotte has been the host, this year for the Ft. Myers Expo.

On Wednesday, February 6th, 2013 pickleball player from the Peace River RV Resort in Wauchula, FL and the Pioneer Village RV Resort in North Ft. Myers, joined those in Harbor Lakes.  The park has one pickleball court, but set up two additional courts on the adjacent tennis courts.  Below the players take to the court for some competitive play...

Players and spectators alike enjoyed the absolutely beautiful Florida weather that day.  And food and refreshments were provided to players and guests for $5 allowing a break from the sunshine..

And below are pictures of all the competitors along with the winners.  Harbor Lakes may have been the host resort for the day , but the entourage of players in their blue t-shirts from Peace River was the largest and they went home the biggest winners of the day.   For the ladies, First and Third place went to Peace River, and Second place to the ladies of Harbor Lakes!

And the men.... all from Peace River.

A very special thank you to Harbor Lakes Manager, Kim Harper  and all the volunteers under the leadership of resident Marty Krinhofer for providing an excellent day of great food, great fun and great pickleball!. 

Congratulations to the winners!
