Currently on site, the north and south interior court slabs have been poured, site utilities have been installed, mechanical, electrical and plumbing installation is occurring in the center section of the building pad, the transformer is set and the metal building is now on site. Over the next few months, the first lift of asphalt will occur, the center slab will be poured, mobilization and elevation of the metal building will happen, and temporary power will be energized.

The Pickleball Club’s first location is now open and operating in Sarasota near Lakewood Ranch, to much success.
