Sarasota & Area Play Sarasota Outdoor Pickleball: The SPC was formed nearly three years ago for the sole purpose of lobbying City and County government bodies to provide outdoor dedicated pickleball courts to the playing community in the northern part of Sarasota County. This committee met with County Commissioners, Parks and Recreation personnel, made multiple presentations to advisory groups to both the City and the County and in general made pests of ourselves.  However, the effort paid off.   We have worked successfully with the County to obtain six dedicated outdoor courts at Longwood Run Park and 12 courts at Pompano Ave. (adjacent to the Fair Grounds).  Both are projected to be available in the first half on 2021.
