Evidently you not aware of your surroundings. I don't like it one bit either, but there are rule breakers around. With little ID checks on outdoor facilities they sneak in. No one should be using our facilities without resident ID pass or visitors pass period. Just telling it is. The only courts I have been consistently checked for my I'd has been Chula Vista. That employee runs tight ship over there. I congratulate her for doing her job!

IMO They only way that will work is some rich guy/gal donations large sum of cash and land donated. There no way facilities can be built and operate on courts fees being charged. Until somebody steps up to the plate and city gets on board it pipe dream.

It can also be used by other pickleballers from the tri-county area for established leagues similar to softball (outsider the Villages) when not used by the advanced players.

Also, it could be used for large multi state pickleball tournaments and national pickleball championships using needed additional courts obtained from local communities willing to participate other than the Villages.

Your opinion means nothing posted here to get any action. Go talk to the Sumter County Commisioners.

But why suggest to someone to break the rules? Is that helping to stop rule breakers??

Consideration should be given to issuing official trespass as I bet the unauthorized people that use the facilities do so often.

Some of the elite player even give lessons during open play times. IMO private lessons on Rec center courts should only be allowed if the rec center get cut of the pie and are at times when no courts are being untilized by residents, which means they have low priority. Volunteer free clinics are different and scheduled through the rec center. I have observed this playing at Rec centers.
I can help you recall

I need to be able to practice in a semi-competitive atmosphere in preparation for upcoming tournaments. I also need to get a tournament rating, however I'm worried that the monthly Lake Miona clinic is for Villages residents only. I imagine I am around a 4.0, however I am pretty young so I'd like to see how I stack up against some of the 5.0 players that live in The Villages.
OP, whatever taxing jurisdiction you live in the Tri County area, I would approach them for construction of some Pickleball Courts. Assuming there are other interested players, I would organize with them and made an effort to "Sell" this to your County or City or perhaps Park District if you have one. We pay for our courts here in The Villages and they are only for Villagers and their guests. Pickleball is a fast growing sport and Courts are popping up all around the country so why not where you live and pay taxes. Good luck.

As a new resident, I am confused by this tri-county rule. Which are these? Why doesn't TV offer for say, 300.00 a month for a pass. Twice the current fee, Only serious players would pay that much. (Insurance perhaps?)

Still learning the whys and wherefores of this unique community.
