Exciting changes are coming to the Palmetto Dunes Pickleball Center this fall! Once again, the Center will be expanding both its facility and its programming in response to the surge in demand we are seeing as Hilton Head Island and Palmetto Dunes Resort are fast becoming a destination for pickleball enthusiasts.
In October, the Palmetto Dunes Pickleball Center will begin construction on 8 new lighted pickleball courts, bringing the total number to 24. After adding 8 courts last fall, they were immediately being fully utilized for the daily morning round robins, prompting the expansion of afternoon round robin sessions.
The additional courts coming this fall will allow further expansion of morning round robins, while holding a few courts open for rental to families and other groups. The Palmetto Dunes Pickleball Center will also be expanding afternoon round robin sessions from two days a week to five this fall.
While the demand for recreational play remains strong, the demand for instructional programming has increased as well. This summer we introduced a series of clinics called the Daily Dose geared towards the advanced beginner and intermediate player looking to expand their tactical and strategic knowledge to improve their skill level. Many of these sessions are led by Sarah Ansboury, our Touring Pro & Director of Pickleball Instruction and one of the top players in the world. Rarely do pickleball players get the opportunity to receive this level of instruction at their local club… so check this one out!
