At a Glance

If you thought the most fun you could have hitting a ball over a net was tennis, think again, because you haven’t tried pickleball. It’s like tennis, but uses a paddle and whiffle ball and is played on a smaller court, so there’s less running and longer rallies. The best place to play one of the fastest-growing sports in America? Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on sun-kissed Hilton Head Island. You’ll learn the game from enthusiastic instructors, enjoy some light-hearted competition and even get to explore charming Hilton Head Island off the court. Come catch the fever in this fun-packed program. You’ll learn why pickleball is such a “big dill!”
