    I will be visiting Hilton Head April 30-May 3 for business and would love to get some tennis together, preferably doubles. I am going to be staying at the Westin, but will have a rental car so I can be flexible on the location.

    I am available to play Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

    I am 35 years old, play both 4.5 and 5.0 doubles in the Dallas area. Please email me if you are interested: kconway@andera.com

    If you cant find anyone to hit with, I would do a clinic at Sea Pines. My Wife and I were there in early April and I did a clinic at Sea Pines, Palmetto Dunes, and Van Der Meer Shipyard.
    Palmetto Dunes was a good work out, but not alot of instruction-more fluff and feel good comments and 90% of the Clinic was ball machine fed....
    Much to my own shagrin, i actually ended up giving instruction to a few women in the clinic b/c they werent getting much feedback from the Pros--our trip was suppose to be my break from teaching, but I guess You cant escape work...lol

    Van Der Meer was a good balance of instruction and hitting alot of balls, it was the biggest clinic I did all weekend (8 people). PD and VDM Did the same king of the court doubles game, which was annoying to me-mostly b/c I often do the same drills in my Clinics, except I do it with kids.

    Sea Pines was the best one I did. It had the best mix of hitting,relavent instruction w/ actual corrections, humor and competition.
    I also liked the facility better.

    Palmetto Dunes has some Pro doubles round Robins I got asked to play in the following week, but We had to get back to MD to work.

    As a Whole, there is alot of tennis available.
    Port Royal is suppose to be nice as well, BUt I never made it to there due to weather.

    If you don't want to do the clinics, see if you can get to the pro shop at Van der Meer at Tennis center, not Shipyards. They keep a book with players looking for games. You can either copy some names, enter yours, or any combination. Very serious tennis happens there.
    It's hard to get on the plantations; Shipyards and Palmetto Dunes, e.g. but you can pay $5 and get a "day pass" to Sea Pines.
