The Guide To Taking Your Tennis Racquet On the Road

Since 1999, Tennis Resorts Online has been helping vacationers decide where to go on their next tennis holiday. I've made a career of giving such advice, initially as Tennis magazine's travel and resorts editor and since 1999 as the founder of this website. What you see here are not paid listings but the descriptions—provided without cost to resorts and camps—of those properties I feel are worthy of your attention. Over the course of several decades, I've visited more than 350 resorts on five continents and participated in some 50 different tennis camps, many more than once. It is that personal experience—supplemented now by reviews submitted by vacationers like you—that underpins this website.

What you'll find on these and the following pages is a suite of tools to help you make an informed choice on where to go. Start by checking out the rankings of the Top 100 Tennnis Resorts and Camps, which we base solely on the reviews submitted by people like you. For more personal advice, use the "Tailored Search" form that lets you specifiy precisely the features you're looking for in a resort or camp. Those results link to my personal descriptions, which are supplemented by the reviews—good or bad—of others who themselves have been there. There are also maps of what can be found in six different regions of the U.S. and one for Europe. Every property we list appears in a master index, listing both alphabetically and by state, region, or country. There is also a section devoted to junior camps, though since I'm a little old to participate in any of those I've had to settle for writing a description and let those juniors who've attended or their parents write personal reviews. To supplement all of this I've included a calendar of events taking place at tennis properties across the globe. We also ask resorts or camps to put together packages that offer special discounts or perks to Tennis Resorts Online readers.

Still, the site needs your input. We want to hear from you about your experience with any resort or camp you know first hand. As an incentive to take the trouble, Tennis Resorts Online is giving away four tennis vacations in an annual drawing . Every review you submit gives you another opportunity to win. To file one for a resort or camp, visit "Write a Review" or "Review a Junior Camp". Finally, let me know of ways you feel the site can be improved (and since we've just gone through a major redesign, please also let me know if there are any technical issues with any of the pages). You can contact me at . See you on the courts. —Roger Cox, Editor

  • 4½-Ball Rating New England Tennis Holidays at Sugarbush, Vermont
    "Beautiful location, new friends, super instructors, fantastic lodging and food, and 5 hours of tennis! Who could ask for more! GREAT time for any age! You won't be disappointed and you'll want to go back! I do!!!"—K.H., Int., April 2018
  • 4½-Ball Rating Four Seasons Resort Nevis, Nevis, West Indies
    "Great drills and pointers. David Wilson is a top notch instructor as well as a personable guy who made us feel very relaxed. We participated in a number of drills and a local mixer that was a ball. I highly recommend the Four Seasons Nevis if you are looking for a stunning location with great tennis facilities."—D.R., Adv. Int., May 2017
  • 3-Ball Rating Guillermo Vilas Tennis Academy, Spain
    "I attended the adult camp whilst on holiday in Palma Nova. The academy was within a minutes walk from my family's holiday appartment. I booked in for three days from 9-11pm. I could have played in the early evening but family commitments meant I did not avail myself of this service. The morning camp was of groups of 2/3 and the format was to move coaches every 30 minutes so that you had four coaches per day who concentrated on some aspect of tennis. You were exposed to a variety of coaching styles in a short period of time. The coaches were professional and gave good feedback. I enjoyed the camp and was glad to get a hit on holiday"—J.B., Int., July 2018
  • 4½-Ball Rating Hanalei Bay Resort, Hawaii
    "The tennis facility and program at Hanalei Bay Resort (HBR) are great. Mary is extremely friendly and helpful to guests for setting up games, lessons and participation in general. HBR is great for both a tennis vacation and for a casual set or two while vacationing at the resort. Locals and guests play together on the courts in match-ups at regular times during the week. Good fun."—M.W., Int., June 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating Waterville Valley Resort, New Hampshire
    "An easy drive for a long weekend from Boston brought us to a beautiful and relaxing setting at Waterville Valley. This place is the opposite of pretentious, very friendly, casual, easy to use and gorgeous. Played in a tennis clinic each morning and hit a ton of balls. Great instruction from Tom. I am a solid player and dont need much help but in addition to getting the hitting in Tom gave me simple little tweaks that are very helpful. The courts are pristine, red clay - in great shape. The rest of the resort also has plenty to offer. Full service pool and athletic facility, multiple restaurants in the cute town square, walking trails, bike rentals and world class day hiking. There is plenty to do here. Love it and we will be back."—M.L., Adv., June 2018
