Holy City Tennis
In business since 2017, DiNardo doesn’t just run a tennis shop, he makes every inch of it part of his daily life, always with an eye to better customer play, a superior product selection and an improved game to make it worth the effort.
“All of Charleston, and especially Mt. Pleasant, has a large tennis community,” DiNardo said. “And with us, you get a knowledgeable staff and all the products and accessories to help advance your game to the next level.”
You also get personal owner attention. DiNardo will walk you through every piece of equipment and clothing, offer advice on playing techniques and how to avoid tennis elbow, and explain why one piece of equipment might be better suited to your game than another.
“My favorite part of the job is interacting with our customers,” he said, “and providing them with the utmost knowledge and professional service.”
Having become practically synonymous with his longtime Sewee Dental practice, Dr. Eddie White has made a habit of growing smiles in and out of the dental chair.
Those smiles are due in part to the location of his practice – once on the edge of the Awendaw wilderness, where he was told no one would come – which is not only a conversation piece, but a place Dr. Eddie loves to be.
“It’s a beautiful, natural area,” he said of the location, where he has practiced since 1998.
And if you can’t wait until your next visit to Dr. Eddie’s dental chair, come see him any Wednesday night at the Sewee Outpost for Barn Jam.
“It’s an original music showcase,” he said. “And the Barn Jams not only bring people together, they’ve been our most consistent source of new patients for 10-plus years.”
The Caldwell family, led by Sally and Ryan Caldwell, is vital to the Isle of Palms community. Originally from Wisconsin, Sally moved to IOP in 1989, just before Hurricane Hugo. She graduated from Clemson University in 1996 and has been a cornerstone of the local education system, teaching at Sullivan’s Island Elementary School since 2000. Sally has also shared her passion for wellness, working as a yoga instructor at 360 Yoga Charleston since 2011. The Caldwells, including sons Davis (22), Ethan (20), and Zander (17), along with their fat cat Tubby, have called IOP home since 2000. The family enjoys the island’s lifestyle. Sally often can be found riding her beach cruiser, paddleboarding or relaxing with a book at the 25th beach access. This close-knit family’s story reflects their strong connection to the community and the natural beauty of IOP.
