July 5, 2022TennisResortsOnline has named Sundial Beach Resort & Spa as the number two Pickleball Resort in the nation. Rankings were compiled using both traveler reviews and research conducted by the publication on pickleball resorts that excelled in a combination of great staff, broad-based instruction, social atmosphere, round-robin events, optional multi-day academies, and tournament offerings.

One of only five resorts bestowed with the award of Gold Medal Category, editor Roger Cox remarked that “These rankings represent the collective wisdom of thousands of players. Taken as a whole, the resorts that make the list reflect the rich diversity in the vacation landscapes.” Due to the growing popularity of the sport, Pickleball was added as a new category in the 2022 resort rankings.

Sundial’s facility is comprised of twelve Plexicushion courts in a spacious lake-front setting featuring stadium seating. A team of IPTPA-certified pros provides a full and active pickleball program including 3-day Sundial It Up Camps, tournaments, round robins, clinics, festivals and more. The courts also offer daily open play and are open to the public with memberships ranging from daily passes to annual options.

“This is a huge and well-deserved honor for the resort”, said Josh Jeffcott, Racquet Sports Manager at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa. “Our program offers something for everyone, from beginner to seasoned player in an unparalleled setting.”

Known as the fastest-growing sport in North America, pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of ping-pong, tennis and badminton. Its popularity is due in part to its social nature, appropriateness for all ages and skill levels, and simplicity of rules.
