For those who have not been to Hilton Head Island since last summer, you will notice some big pickleball happenings at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis and Pickleball Center.
We have expanded our facility to include eight additional fully dedicated pickleball courts, bringing our total number of pickleball courts to 16 — all of which are lighted.
The highlight of our programming remains the pro-supervised morning pickleball round robin. We use all 16 courts. These popular events challenge players at every skill level with competitive play. We group players by skill level. Pros rotate players to ensure that everyone is competing at their skill level. The round robin is a great way to meet other pickleball players who are visiting the Island in a fun, social environment.
We hold pickleball round robins every morning, seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to noon. We offer beginner clinics for anyone looking for an introduction to pickleball. Advanced clinics are available for players ages 13 and over, who want to fine-tune their game. Reservations are encouraged.
The Palmetto Dunes Pickleball Club is another great way to improve your game by playing at a reduced member rate. Monthly memberships are available for $25 for individuals and $40 for families. Memberships are available for longer periods as well.
Check out the comments by fellow pickleball players on TripAdvisor, Yelp or Google by searching Palmetto Dunes Tennis and Pickleball Center.
Hope to see you on the courts soon!
