Experience the fastest growing sport in America, lowcountry style

Put tennis, badminton and ping pong in a cocktail shaker, and you’ve got Pickleball. And no one serves up this unique and fun sport like Palmetto Dunes. Created in 1965, Pickleball is played with oversized paddles and a softball-sized plastic ball that travels substantially slower than a tennis ball. The Palmetto Dunes Tennis & Pickleball Center features 24 dedicated Pickleball courts, all lighted for night play, and one of the most comprehensive instructional programs on the east coast. It is a fun and simple game to pick up at any age, but can take a lifetime to master.

Tennis & Pickleball Center Hours:
Sun - Sat: 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Select courts are lighted for night play through 10 p.m.
