Pickleball Expansion

There are big changes happening at the Palmetto Dunes Pickleball Center.

Currently, the Pickleball Center at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort boasts eight dedicated pickleball courts and is the only place on Hilton Head Island where resort guests, Island residents and visitors alike can find pro-supervised daily round robin play for all skill levels. The center also has both beginner and intermediate clinics that teach the basics, as well as the more refined strategies of the game.

This month, the Pickleball Center will expand to a total of 16 dedicated, lighted courts. Construction is underway to convert 2 of the 23 Har-Tru courts to asphalt pickleball courts with permanent nets. The 8 new courts will be used for an expansion of the pickleball program, which will include the world-renowned Ansboury Pickleball Academy.

Sarah Ansboury, one of the top pickleball players in the world, recently joined the Palmetto Dunes’ staff as the Director of Pickleball Instruction, and will represent and promote Palmetto Dunes Resort worldwide as a Touring Pickleball Pro. The Ansboury Pickleball Academy, an intensive 15-hour program over 4 days, is for competitive pickleball players who want to accelerate their game to the next level.
