Wow, as we approach 2014, how the sport has grown in Brevard. Just 4 years ago we had one Pickleball venue in the county (Melbourne Beach Recreation Center) with half a dozen players. Today we have nine public venues and another four private facilities that I know about with +/-200 players that play.
Eau Gallie Civic Center is the Space Coasts is the newest Pickleball venue, only open in the last few weeks has been already a very popular spot to play.
Located at 1551 Highland Ave., Melbourne, they are hosting open play Pickleball/ & in the gym.
$1 per day or $18 per year- Best Pickleball deal on the Spaces Coast
There were 9 players from the Space Coast playing in the Daytona Shores Fall Pickleball Tournament.
Even though a well-run fun tournament, it is played outside and unfortunately it rained most of the dayand it was postponed until .
Half of the players from Brevard were not able to extend their plans and had to drop out.
Congrats to Judy & Patty that took first place in the Women's 50-59 category and to Larry and Scott who took silver in the men's 30-59 category.
