With a long legacy of island tennis, Sundial’s facilities are recognized area-wide and have repeatedly been named the “Best Tennis” on Sanibel & Captiva Islands. The resort features six state-of-the-art subsurface HydroGrid® courts. In 2017 the resort added twelve Pickleball courts with stadium seating at a
new lakefront facility. Since then, the courts have played host to pro exhibitions, tournaments and camps, and the facility has garnered national recognition. Sundial offers an active tennis and pickleball program as well as memberships, all of which are open to the public.

The two-day tournament schedule features tennis on Saturday, April 25 and Pickleball on Sunday, April 26. Registration includes a Sunday poolside BBQ with live music.
