Why indoor pickleball in Sarasota?
Sarasota is ideal for an indoor pickleball facility. As in all of Florida, rain, heat, wind, insects and humidity frequently disrupt the opportunity to play outdoor sports. Sarasota receives 56 inches of rain a year, compared to US national average of 38! Not to mention, for half of the year, high temperatures and humidity affects the desirability and safety of outdoor play for at least part of the day, and from April to October, the average high temperature exceeds 85 degrees, and from June to September, the high is 90 or above (83 days per year). As beautiful as Sarasota is, most times are just not ideal for healthy, relaxing, pickleball play. The Pickleball Club, has the solution!
What is pickleball?
Pickleball is America’s fastest-growing sport. Currently, 85 new pickleball facilities are opening each week in the US. Pickleball invented over 50 years ago, recently exploded in popularity as America's aging and retiring baby-boomer cohort needed an active competitive sport that had lower physical demands compared to tennis, squash, and racquetball. Pickleball is played on a smaller version of a tennis court, requiring less running, overall strength, and less strain on aging joints. Over 75% of the current players are baby-boomers and retirees; however, the sport is growing rapidly among younger segments of the population. The sport is most often played as doubles, with four players on the court at a time.
