County Parks Update: Manatee Parks currently is planning to
repurpose the front 3 basketball courts at the High School soon.
I’m not sure the timeline. Perminate nets will be installed I’m told.
Upgrades to G.T. Bray will follow along with
plans to add 24 pickleball courts and 2 covered stadium courts at
Premier Sports starting in 2020. Planing is ongoing.

This will also reduce operating costs.
Tip of the month:
Consider lobbing while engaged in dinking at the net. It moves your opponents
off the non-volley zone giving you control.
