Space Coast (Florida) Pickleball Update

Submitted by Scott Nelson
Ambassador, Florida Space Coast

Dear Pickleballer:
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 Tuesday /Thursday &  Friday 1:30-3:30PM in the gym.
$1 per day or $18 per year- Best  Pickleball deal on the Spaces Coast

Daytona  Tournament-

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 day Saturday and it was postponed until Sunday

 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. 

Good Luck California Bill
Bill Masucci will be flying out to Arizona this week and playing in the Pickleball National Tournament.

Bill will be playing in the 70+ division next week.
