St. Pete Court nears completion
Our Cancha

The St. Pete Jai-alai is one step closer to completion with the court surfacing now complete. The court is now a smooth green colored one, with the "out of bounds" area a beige color. The material is very similar to a tennis court. In addtition, the serving lines and under/over serving box lines have been painted. They were painted white instead of the traditional red so it will be easier to pick up the orange or yellow balls as they hit the line.

There are still a few items to take care of - lines painted on the walls to correspond with the serving lines; an additional screen needs to be installed above the front wall; a players gage with benches; spectator viewing area; and additional lighting. Also, the St. Pete Cancha logo may be painted on the court walls.

A tentative grand opening date of April 19th has been set - awaiting final approval from the city of St. Pete.
