FACILITY OF THE MONTH RiverBend Motorcoach Resort LaBelle, Florida BY ALAN NEFF T here are only a few Class A RV Resorts in the United States that can match the amenities that RiverBend has to offer. Only a select number of resorts also offer eight or more pickleball courts, with very active pickleball clubs. Certainly, RiverBend would fall into the category of “Awesome Places to Play Pickleball” and spend the winter season, too. Why? For starters, RiverBend is a beautiful, tropical RV resort, with 315 manicured sites. An on-site restaurant is open on Saturday mornings where the “Breakfast Boys” (many of 46 whom are avid pickleball players) serve up an all-you-can-eat breakfast for $7. Located in the River Clubhouse, you can enjoy your meal right next to the Caloosahatchee River (don’t try… it took me two years to pronounce it). Additional amenities include a world-class remote-control racecar venue, where battery and/ or nitrous-fueled cars zoom around a beautiful track at close to 80 mph! Too fast for you? How about a regatta-style race area for model sailboats and speedboats? Not big enough to wet your whistle? TO SUBSCRIBE CALL 724.942.0940 OR GO TO THEPICKLEBALLMAG.COM
