Pickleball Revolution – October 2018

Summer at the Palmetto Dunes Pickleball Center is about people and families coming together to enjoy some fun, exercise and a little friendly competition. It’s gratifying to see that pickleball is ranked up there with biking and putt-putt golf when it comes to family-fun activities.

This summer, pickleball court rentals were dominated by families with tweens and teens who seemed the most interested. It affirmed that our programming next summer needs to be expanded to include this age group.

But October is upon us, and we are looking forward to the return of couples and couple’s groups who are drawn to the Island’s wide assortment of outdoor activities, entertainment and dining options. If you haven’t played pickleball or feel intimidated by the free-for-all nature of most drop-in programs, we encourage you to come to one of our clinics designed especially for beginners. We will teach you everything you need to know, from effective stroke dynamics to court positioning and shot placement, so that you can begin to enjoy this fun couple’s sport.

As always, we highly recommend that you play in one or more of the round robins that follow our clinics to reinforce what you have learned and to meet new friends. You won’t be sorry! Check out our reviews on TripAdvisor for the Palmetto Dunes Tennis and Pickleball Center.
