The Winter Flex League is underway with 3 skill levels.  Del Webb is currently leading the Team Advanced.

Info will be out soon for the Spring Team Division; April-May.

The launch of a Weekday DUPR League was successful.  33 Teams are competing.  If you have an ID or looking to join DUPR, please join our club as well.  Just look for tour logo.

Remember you can enter your own DUPR match scores as long as all are in DUPR.

Also, players can go to: to view their skill rating.  This rating and DUPR should be close after a few matches.

LWR High School Update:

Good News! The county plans to replace the current concrete with 6 new black top courts with covered seating, a hitting wall and will not start until mid-April per our request.  This will give East Manatee County a quality free use pickleball facility, and not disrupt our snowbird season.

Instructional Academy: 

For your game improvement, please visit our site for a list of our instructors and trainers. Free Beginner clinic held first Saturday of each month at 8:30am.


Our club and logo are now Trade Marked ™.  The sandhill crane logo has been a great success and club shirt favorite at $25. See our website for order info in membership area.

Tip:  Oops I popped it up!  Now what?  If you are mid court or back, stop, split step, get low and lower your paddle.  This will give you some time to react and scoop it up.  Lob it high if you can or a nice drop in the kitchen works to get you back up to the net.
