Tennis Resort Court Fees: What’s Fair?


The Meter Is Running

Court fees at tennis resorts range from none at all to $50/hour or more. If you’re an avid player hoping to spend several hours a day on court while on vacation, then the cost of court fees potentially becomes an issue. Sometimes you can avoid them by booking a package, and sometimes you can minimize them by opting for resorts that charge a daily, rather than an hourly, fee. But given that there is a cost to build and maintain tennis courts—especially if they’re clay—resort tennis facilities are increasingly under pressure to be profit centers and that is driving up the cost of playing.

But do court fees influence your choice of a tennis resort? And if so, what’s the most you’re willing to pay? Please post your comments about court fees below and then take part in our reader poll on Tennis Resorts Online’s home page.

    We have stayed at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Co., a 5-Star resort, for a golfing vacation (a package type of deal for three nights). They were happy to set us up for a tennis game with some other 3.5’s who were members of the Broadmoor Tennis Club, for a match on their courts. When you pay the cost of a room at one of these high-end resorts, they should let you play for free. They charge for participation in the tennis camps, of course. But when the courts are not busy and when there are club members who want to play with some new folks that they don’t know, they should not be charging at all.

    Court fees should be minimal. Absolutely the most I would pay is $20 per hour for the court,m but the first hour per day should be free,
