Tennis Vacationing In 2021

Mercifully, 2020 is behind us, and with vaccinations for the coronavirus rolling out, it's reasonable to hope for a far better 2021. The Australian Open has found a way to take place, albeit two weeks later than originally scheduled and only by quarantining players for two weeks before the event. The BNP Paribas Open in Palm Springs has had to cancel once again, but the Miami Open is still on track as of this writing and the Delray Beach Open by Vitacost.com just wrapped up after rescheduling to a new date: Jan. 4-11, 2021. Tennis resorts and camps have, for the most part, found ways to cope with the virus. There are still some restrictions with respect to interstate and international travel, but one hopes those will resolve as more and more people are vaccinated and the infection rate diminishes.

Are you beginning to think about taking a tennis vacation? We decided to poll Tennis Resorts Online readers about just that, and the results are below. If you'd like to participate, visit Tennis-Travel Poll.

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.

Finding the Tennis Resort or Camp That's Best For You

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 Tennis 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 specify 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. You can contact me at . See you on the courts. —Roger Cox, Editor fake rolex for sale

  • 4½-Ball Rating Cliff Drysdale Tennis at Amelia, Florida
    "We visited the Cliff Drysdale Tennis facility in Amelia Island in November. The tennis facilities are great, and the resort is in a perfect setting. We participated in the tennis clinics and private lessons. Both of them were fun, and beneficial to our tennis game. The pros keep you moving, and the drills were really good. They didn't just feed you balls. They provided valuable tips to improve your strokes. The head pro, Rob Wright, does a fantastic job. He makes sure that all participants are having a good time. All of the pros were not only great tennis instructors, but were nice people too. We would definitely recommend this place as a must go to for great tennis, and a great vacation."—W.W., Adv.

  • 4½-Ball Rating Innisbrook, A Salamander Golf & Spa Resort, Florida
    "We had a wonderful time attending a tennis camp at this resort and would recommend to anyone that is looking for a fun get away at a beautiful resort. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the resort itself was serene and peaceful."—K.W., Int., November 2020
  • 3½-Ball Rating Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa, California
    "We were extremely pleased with the camp, particularly the technical level of our instruction from Tom Fey. Tom gave us very constructive instruction and techniques tailored to our existing game. We appreciated especially his technical knowledge and ability to fix our fundamentals. We feel we are playing better thanks to his adjustments and advice. He's also very personable and patient with our questions. We recognize how challenging holding a camp must be during Covid-19, but overall we felt very safe and comfortable with the Cliff Drysdale Camp experience. We definitely plan to come back to further improve and have fun! Thank you for such a positive experience."—E.P., Int., December 2020

  • 4½-Ball Rating Wintergreen Tennis Academy, Virginia
    "Played in their "Tennis Academy”. It was a great experience. Loved the instruction, challenge of play and the overall amenities of the wintergreen. Highly recommend for any ‘serious” tennis player to step up their game and have a wonderful mini vacation. The weather was amazing as the country was in the middle of a heat wave and we played in 72 degrees……"—G.M., Adv. Int., July 2018
