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 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 Silverado Resort and Spa, California
    "This is my second time at Silverado resort and tennis camp. I returned this year to play some tennis and spend some time in Wine Country with my family. My wife and I participated in PBI tennis and in Vine, backhand and volleys camps. The tennis camp is well run and organized by Katie Dellich. She is very welcoming and enthusiastic. She can organize a great experience for any level tennis player without putting pressure. My wife who is a tennis beginner feels at ease and loves to come to her camps. The vibe and energy we get at Silverado stays with us for many months Thanks to Quinn and Katie."—E.A., Adv. Int., July 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating Resort at Longboat Key Club, Florida
    "I came to Longboat Key Club with my whole family to play golf, tennis and just enjoy the beautiful beach. Susan and the rest of the crew at the tennis club where super helpful in getting me and my brother into clinics and setting up games with other players. Made our vacation perfect!"—C.C., Pro, August 2018
  • 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
  • 4½-Ball Rating Carmel Valley Ranch, California
    "My wife and I spent five days at the Carmel Valley Ranch in July. We loved the accommodations, the food, the drink, and especially the tennis! Ben Gottenberg was the pro for our clinics and drills. He was excellent as a teacher and as cheerleader for the group. It was really fun and we credit Ben most of all!"—K.B., Int., August 2018
