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

  • 4-Ball Rating Resort at Longboat Key Club, Florida
    "Great spot for tennis and golf lovers! The staff is fantastic! They set me up with competitive matches and made me feel very welcome! Particularly the staff and pros were friendly and seemed to care about you getting the most out of your time at the resort. The courts are some of the best I’ve ever played on! The beach and the rest of the facilities are nice too. Very kid friendly if that’s your priority."—W.S., Adv., February 2021
  • 4-Ball Rating Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, California
    "An absolutely beautiful property with top notch customer service across the board. I had two fantastic private lessons with pros that were responsive to where I was in my game and crafted the lesson accordingly. The clinics kept us moving but would love to see more drills. Overall, a great experience and I will be back!"—K.F., Int., March 2020
  • 5-Ball Rating Cliff Drysdale Tennis at Amelia, Florida
    "Three of my girlfriends and I decided to take a first time tennis weekend to Amelia. We wanted exceptional instruction, a high energy atmosphere, and fun memories to take back home. Every box was checked and then some! All the Pros (Sal, Kyle, & Jeremy) were so knowledgeable and very perspective of the kind of instruction each of us individually needed. I have been to several tennis resorts and this is hands down my favorite! We are already planning our Fall tennis weekend and I hope others get the opportunity to come try what this one of a kind tennis resort has to offer!"—M.M., Adv. Int., March 2021
  • 4-Ball Rating Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii, Hawaii
    "I squeezed in as much tennis as possible while here for an extended work retreat in Nov. 2019 (pre-pandemic). Booking an instructor was super easy as the tennis shop is expertly run. Instruction was very good and I definitely got a lot of 1:1 time with the coach. I had one match with another tennis player there mainly for golf but since he packed his racquet he was ready. The courts are very well maintained, but there wasn't a lot of tennis going on."—R.S., Adv. Int., May 2021
  • 5-Ball Rating Taos Tennis at Quail Ridge Taos, New Mexico
    "This was our first time in Taos and we were looking for somewhere to play tennis and came upon Quail Ridge and I am so grateful we did!! By far the best tennis resort we’ve been to—courts are in great shape and staff are extremely helpful, not to mention the views of the mountains here are amazing! We can’t wait to return and play again soon!"—A.S., Int., March 2021
