GAME ON! Without question, one of the best things about Weston’s wannaB inn is the ability to get outside and have some fun, while the rest of the world stays cooped up indoors to stay warm. And what better way to experience the beautiful outdoors than with a little friendly competition? There are plenty of ways to spend your days at our resort, but one thing we find our guests really love, is getting out for a game of golf, catching (or playing) some baseball, or enjoying an afternoon of Pickleball. At the wannaB inn, every season is sports season, and we know that that competitor in you will love every second of it.



One of the biggest activities around here is baseball. Our resort boasts over 900’ of gorgeous gulf facing beach-front, so there’s more than enough room to get out for a game of catch. If you’re more into spectating, Spring Training is just a few short weeks away. This year, 15 teams are venturing to Florida to prepare for the regular season, from mid-February through March. More info can be found here. Then the Charlotte Stone Crabs season kicks off in April and runs through mid-September, so catching a game while you’re here is more than doable.


If golf is more your speed, then you’re in luck. With 15 courses all within ten miles of the resort, a great 18 holes is never more than a few minutes away. There’s something for any player’s schedule or skill level too! Many of the nearby golf courses offer on-site golfing 480 377dining options, and The Cove even features stadium lighting, so if you can’t make it out to the course until after dark, you’ll still be able to play. Golf has always been a favorite among our guests, so we know you won’t be disappointed with the variety of courses available.


Another local favorite is pickleball, and with the Englewood Sports Complex not 15 minutes away from the resort, getting out for a rally is super easy! The Englewood Sports Complex offers five Pickleball courts (3 indoor, 2 outdoor). Best of all, you don’t even need to bring your own equipment, as they provide paddles and balls. Not to mention, their outdoor courts are free to use! If you’re a Pickleball enthusiast, then you’ll find it quite difficult to pass up playing a few rounds while staying with us.

We had an excellent time at last weekend’s Paddlefest. There was so much fun to be had, whether you were part of the races, or were just out to watch and get down with some food and festivities, the only things wider than the ocean were our ear-to-ear smiles. We’re not quite ready for the fun to stop though, which is great, because this weekend we’ll be taking to the water again for the Englewood Beach Waterfest Offshore World Championship! The event runs from November 18th-19th and you’re not going to want to miss a minute of it.

The Offshore World Championship is expected to see attendance of over 60 boats running at speeds of over 130 mph! Fans of high-speed action are encouraged to visit Englewood Beach as it’s transformed into Race Village over this weekend.
