Top 100 Tennis Resorts and Camps

May 1, 2015. The results of Tennis Resorts Online's annual survey of the Top 100 Tennis Resorts and Camps are in. For 2015, vacationers have chosen Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina as the No. 1 tennis resort in the world and once again crowned the Roy Emerson Tennis Camps at the Gstaad Palace in Switzerland as the No. 1 tennis camp. Collectively, they reflect the differing tastes—and pocketbooks—of avid players the world over. They range from grand hotels to small inns, and from posh hideaways to low-key, affordable resorts. Some are better for families, others for romantic couples, still others for singles or even teams and group of friends. What they all have in common, however, is a passion for tennis and a proven ability to cater to the needs of avid players.
As always, we've divided the Top 100 into two groups: the Top 75 Tennis Resorts and the Top 25 Tennis Camps. The Top 5 in each category appear below. For the complete list, visit Top 100 Tennis Resorts & Camps.
