I just spent the week at Palmetto Dunes and had the pleasure of working with Glenn Sheaffer several times. Glenn really knows the game of tennis and was able to help several aspects of my game. I watched him help players from 3.5 up to 5.5 D1 college player as well. Glenn helped me with strokes as well as strategy... More

Enjoyed the tennis. The staff inside was always friendly and helpful. The pros all had such different personalities from each other that I got good tips from all of them. Some were hard core, some laid back, some all friendly, some all business. All helpful in his own way. There was always a court available as well for play and... More

I came to work on improving my doubles game. Went to the Competitive Doubles class taught by Keith and Glenn. They did a nice job working on mindset and techniques, and we were moving almost the whole time. They learned our names and were encouraging. It was fun, and I will take home a few things to use.

I wanted to drop a note here to highlight the experience my children (5 & 3) had with Rusty during their three Short Shots lessons as part of our recent stay on Hilton Head. Being novices to the game, Coach Rusty had a great demeanor and not only helped teach the little ones some of the basic skills in tennis,... More

This is the second year we visited Palmetto Dunes to have a week of tennis. We played with Tapi both years. He is a great teacher. The kids had fun and learned a lot. Tapi teaches the modern game of tennis. On our first trip he had both of my kids (boy aged 5 and girl aged 7) wanting to... More

We were staying in Palmetto Dunes at the Marriott. The weather wasn't great and we weren't able to spend any time on the beach. We stopped in at the Tennis Center and asked if we could get a last minute lesson for our 9-year old. They were very accommodating and my son had a good lesson.

We have visited the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center on 3 different trips to Hilton Head. The courts are mostly well cared for and availability is usually good. We were given a court that had not been raked on our first day. It had rained in the morning and the court next to us had HUGE puddles. You could see where... More

Loved loved the vibe and offerings at the tennis center. From welcoming staff, game changing racket stringers, excellent courts and a wide variety of clinics we absolutely loved our experience over our week at Hilton Head. Strongly suggest the stroke and doubles clinics as well as the doubles round robin - all well managed and worth the fees. Cannot say... More
