Cedars brings pickleball options to their various tennis club offerings on the island of Longboat Key, Florida.

"Within a few short months we have witnessed a transformation at Cedars East and the additional sport offerings compound the luxurious resort feel our fellow members appreciate."

Cedars Tennis Resort & Club announces the opening of pickleball courts in addition to their various tennis offerings to both full-time and temporary members. Known in the area for their meticulously maintained Har-Tru courts, players will enjoy the effects of the soft clay foundations that are unique in the area to the Cedars community. “We are excited to open our three new pickleball courts and be part of the fastest growing sport in our country,” said Jeff Otterbein, Tennis Director at Cedars. “Pickleball is a fun and social way to stay in shape, plus it is easier on your body being on the clay surface. We know our members are going to fall in love with this spin on their favorite sport.”

Pickleball is an indoor or outdoor paddle sport where players hit a ball over a 36-inch high net using solid-faced paddles. Opponents on either side of the net hit the ball back and forth until one side commits a rule infraction. Similar to tennis, pickleball can be played as both a singles or doubles sport and has rules that allow teams with standing players along with wheelchaired players to participate. The main difference between the two is the court size; pickleball is played on a small court allowing for less of a need for running.

Nick Cetwinski, the community’s HOA President, said, “We at Cedars East are extremely happy that RVA and Larry Starr have opened the new pickleball courts along with our already wonderful tennis courts. Within a few short months we have witnessed a transformation at Cedars East and the additional sport offerings compound the luxurious resort feel our fellow members appreciate. The HOA is proud of the hard work and dedicated partnership we have fostered with Larry Starr and the RVA/Cedars team. Projects such as this are the direct result of such vision and shared community goals.”
