For the first time ever, a large group of N. Miami amateur players are coming up to play at the St. Pete cancha this weekend for a big fundraiser event.
The tournament is being put together by Jon “Belota” Morin, currently a player on the St. Pete “roster”. The fundraiser is being held to raise more cash to further enhance the playing experience at America’s first public court.
The overhead protection netting over the court will need raising up and work on the front wall and above padding will need additional work.
The cancha is the first and only public jai-alai court in America and opened in 2008. Last year, additional funds were raised to expand the court and after a long 6-month period, the court reopened in December of 2021. Under the direction of our contractors, Scott King and Eric Lanctot, the court is now one of the best amateur facilities in the world.
The players from the event are all making contributions. The event is being held at Puryear Park this weekend. There will be drinks, food, and free programs available.
