Our Story

Players World of Sports was acquired in 2023 by long-time family friends and business partners, Daryl and Kathy Daye of Bluffton, SC, and Jeff and Heather Yakes of Hardeeville, SC. Daryl and Kathy were D1 athletes at LSU, (football and gymnastics, respectfully) Jeff is a former basketball, soccer, and baseball athlete, and Heather is a former World Champion baton twirler. All four share not only the love of sports but have a passion for an active lifestyle and a commitment to their local community as residents in the Hilton Head area.

Amy Wright, our general manager, tennis guru, and resident expert, leads our team of passionate and knowledgeable staff to greet you with a smile and answer your toughest questions.
