HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (November 10, 2009) – The Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center, an award-winning tennis facility at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island, S.C. recently  earned the U.S. Commerce Association’s 2009 Best of Hilton Head Island Award in the Tennis Courts category.

“We offer an outstanding tennis experience for our guests and our members,” said John Kerr, Director of Tennis at Palmetto Dunes. “When it comes to Hilton Head tennis, our facility truly is second to none.”

Currently ranked # 5 in the world by Tennis Resorts Online, the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center is home to some of the nation’s finest clinics, camps and instructional programs. The Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center has been consistently ranked in the Top 10 among the “50 Greatest Tennis Resorts” by Tennis Magazine since the ranking’s inception in 1975. 

The Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center features 23 clay courts and two Nova ProBounce courts, eight of which are lighted for night play. The energetic staff, all tennis professionals and aficionados, lead a wide range of weekly programs, including clinics, drill sessions and daily round robin tournaments. From March to October, when Palmetto Dunes is in its peak season, the tennis center adds a weekly exhibition, happy hour and free demonstration day.     

For more than 30 years, the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center has earned the distinction of being a true leader in tennis instruction. The center’s instructional programs – which are among the most diverse in the nation – have been strategically designed for every age group and skill level.

Thanks to its unparalleled tennis facilities and world-class reputation for developing skilled tennis players, the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center is continually sought out as the host facility of choice for a wide range of tennis tournaments and events. The tennis center hosts seven tennis tournaments between February and November. Every year, the tournaments draw tennis players of all ages and from a wide range of skill levels from across the United States.

Each year, the U.S. Commerce Association identifies companies that they believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2009 award program focused on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the U.S. Commerce Association and data provided by third parties.
