Join Our Junket to Pictona! 

Yo, <<First Name>>!

  How about we get organized for a two-day, 1-night Cove Pickleball junket to the big, beautiful Pictona pickleball facility in nearby Holly Hill, Florida?

  Haven't been to Pictona yet? It's the most impressive new public pickleball facility in Central Florida, with 24 beautiful courts, eight of them under cover, a full snack bar with full bar (beer, wine, soft drinks and cocktails!), a pro shop, and much more. Since its opening in 2018, Pictona has become a Mecca for mid-sized pickleball events in Florida, and recently hosted the IFP's Bainbridge Cup in 2021!

  If we can organize a group of 10 or more Cove players, we can reserve court time for our group -- and probably even get a group rate at a nearby beachfront hotel!

  Any partners or spouses who aren't pickleball players can chill on the beach or poolside at the hotel while we pickleball addicts play in the afternoon of the first day and morning of the second day.

  Along the way, we can plan to meet for lunch, dinner and lunch on the way to and from the courts, making it a nice one-night getaway just 90 minutes from Cypress Cove.

  Here are the proposed dates and itinerary, all subject to availability and how many folks are willing to jump in:
  • Tuesday, September 20:
    • Depart Cypress Cove to arrive in Holly Hill for lunch by 12:30pm / restaurant TBA
    • 1:30: Open play / challenge court play at Pictona on our reserved courts until 5pm; non-playing partners can check-in to hotel after 3pm
    • 5:30: Return to hotel, freshen up; adjourn for group dinner on the beach / restaurant TBA
    • Overnight in hotel
  • Wednesday, September 21: 
    • Group buffet breakfast at hotel 7-8:00am
    • 8:00: Pickleball players depart for Pictona
    • 8:30 - 11:30: Open play / challenge court play at Pictona on our reserved courts
    • Noon: Re-group for lunch at beach bar restaurant TBA
    • 1:30pm: Depart for Cypress Cove
  Pricing: I won't have firm pricing until we see how many folks want to jump in with us. If we have 10 or more players committed, we will (most likely) be able to reserve courts at Pictona, and there is good availability mid-week and no events scheduled on those dates. Likewise, hotel rooms are reasonable, and I'm seeing rates under $100/night for beachfront hotel properties near Pictona.

  If this sounds like something you'd like to be part of AND CAN COMMIT TO if we have enough response, please shoot an email to and let us know! 

  See you on the courts!
