Fall Pickleball News

Fall Pickleball News! 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. The demand we are seeing shows that Hilton Head Island and Palmetto Dunes are fast becoming a pickleball destination.

In October, the Palmetto Dunes Pickleball Center will begin construction on 8 new lighted pickleball courts. This will  bring the total number of courts to 24. After adding 8 courts last fall, they were immediately being utilized for the daily morning round robins. This prompted the expansion of afternoon round robin sessions. 

The additional courts coming this fall will allow further expansion of morning round robins. It also allows us to keep a few courts open for rental to families and other groups.  

The Pickleball Center will also be expanding afternoon round robin sessions from two days a week to five. 

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. It is geared towards the intermediate player looking to expand tactical and strategic knowledge. It also promotes improvement of overall skill level.  

Many of these sessions are led by Sarah Ansboury, our Touring Pro and Director of Pickleball Instruction. Sarah is 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. Be sure to check her out! 

A great way to learn more about what’s happening on Hilton Head Island, pickleball-wise, is to follow the “Palmetto Dunes Pickleball” page on Facebook.

Hope to see you on the courts soon!
