A Conversation with Derrick and Terry Williams, Mount Pleasant Racquet Club

December 19, 2019

Slated to open in 2020, the Mount Pleasant Racquet Club will be the premier tennis, social and wellness club in the region, merging over 600,000 square feet of facilities with food service, a pool, social function areas and more. Pre-construction work has begun on the facility that will feature 24 lighted outdoor clay courts, 6 indoor clay courts and 12 pickleball courts.

The new center has affiliated with the Cliff Drysdale Management tennis development company. The center has also partnered with Troon, which manages golf courses, recreation-center restaurants and more nationwide.

“Greater Charleston is one of the fastest growing tennis communities in the country,” said owner Derrick Williams. “What we are delivering in this complex is above and beyond what people expect. Our intention is to be a world-class center that welcomes tournament play and inspires the best players who live or visit here.”

In September 2019, the Mount Pleasant Racquet Club entered into a partnership with tennis coaching legend, Nick Bolletieri, who will assist with the development and youth program.

The Club site is at 3236 Hwy 17N in Mount Pleasant, SC.
