My brother in Atlanta invited me to attend a three day doubles clinic with his team at Van Der Meer in Hilton Head. We had three half days of 3.5 hour lessons where we rotated thru four different instructors that drilled us on a number of skills. Great facilities and great, friendly instructors. Certainly improved aspects of my game. Worth... More

Van der Meer Tennis is a brand of itself! The complex located in Shipyard Plantation off Pope Avenue is well appointed and maintained. I had the opportunity to receive instruction for Advanced Drills on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday of Labor Day week 2015. All of the Pros were professional, extremely competent and very personable. A Pro named Andy was the... More

My family has vacationed for 35 years in Hilton Head at Players Club and I guess now they have Van Der Meer managing their courts now. We wanted to use one of the inside courts because it was raining. The attendant said it was $35/hr to play. I thought that was strange because we own a condo timeshare and have... More

I did the five day clinic, 18 total hours. Facility-well maintained courts. There is an ice machine, which I found outside after a few days. No towels, which surprised me. Gatorade choices for purchase were limited, no souvenir for the clinic (like a tshirt or towel) and limited tennis items for purchase. None of these affected the play, but the... More

I took a bunch of the adult clinics with Peter and the teaching was perceptive, sharp, critical, fast-paced and focused. There was no idle downtime just work, work, work. My tennis game and footwork were utterly different after a few sessions...money well spent.

I have spent a week each the last 2 years in Hilton Head and stayed close to the Van Der Meer Tennis Center. It is a tennis player's dream come true. 20(?) or so Har Tru courts and all types of group play or lessons available. Wonderful teaching staff. I played 5 days each trip and mixed private, semi-private lessons... More

Van Der Meer has a long history of running excellent tennis programs for both adults and kids. We spent two weeks here to send our young child to its QuickStart tennis program. As soon as the kids walk in they are playing tennis and occupied all day - none of this aimless wandering around that you see in some camps... More

Once a World Class Tennis Facility that right now has no service and it´s managed very poorly. The service is appalling and the team in place dont understand that they have other guests that have paid for tennis during their vacation at their facility and it is not granted as it seems that is better to cater big groups and...

This is our second vacation with access to the Van Der Meer Tennis Club at Shipyard. If I counted correctly, 16 of the 18 courts are clay. The court charges are very fair and the coaching staff covers players of all levels from beginner to advanced. The courts are properly separated by V-shaped full height fence sections at the base...

Oh my.... what a treat this was... I had the pleasure and privilege to take the adult clinic with Dr Louie Cap. He has such a way to engage everyone not matter what your level is and pinpoint the right next step in your own personal tennis journey. He is committed to improve your tennis (all facets of the tennis... More
