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

  • 4-Ball Rating Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, Nayarit Mexico
    "The tennis program was great! Both my husband and I took a clinic every morning. Miguel, the tennis pro, always kept things moving and fun, regardless of the various player levels. He was also very generous in the tips and feedback he provided. Although at times there were 6-8 players, he paid attention to each individual and would suggest a little adjustment in stance or swing where appropriate. We were also fortunate enough to participate in an annual doubles tournament where we got to interact with other pros, guests and residents. It was so much fun. I highly recommend the experience."—B.W., Int., March 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating Couples Swept Away Negril, Jamaica
    "This is an all-inclusive resort with a tennis program, not a tennis resort. That said, it's the best tennis resort we've visited (or at least tied for the best). Each room gets one hour/day of private lessons from Jamaican pros. The Jamaican pros are all excellent, you cannot go wrong. In addition, the resort brings in a guest pro each week to run 2 morning clinics (intermediate & advanced) and afternoon clinic (beginner) and a round robin in the evening. The quality of the visiting pro varies, we've been 4 times and had 3 excellent pros and 2 mediocre pros. In addition, you can reserve as much free court time as you want and there are often guests around to play with. In addition to the tennis, this resort has a beautiful beach, good food, and many fun activities that will keep the non-tennis players happy and busy too. It is adults only and very calm so if you are looking for night life, you might be disappointed."—J.H., Int., January 2018
  • 5-Ball Rating Tennis: Europe, Connecticut
    "My summer doing Tennis: Europe was an incredible experience. Not only did my tennis game improve tremendously from competitive tournaments and daily practices, but I got to explore the West Coast and bond with new friends all throughout the trip as well. The coaches were extremely nice and qualified for their jobs, and tried to accommodate our needs as much as possible."—A.S., Adv. Int., January 2018
  • 4½-Ball Rating VitalHotel Wolfgangsee Nature Spa & Tennis Resort, Austria
    "Wonderful setting and tennis program. We went during July, and it rained almost daily, but only for an hour or two. Still plenty of time for hiking, biking, and exploring the Alps. The resort offers indoor and outdoor courts, but all lessons were indoors. The instructors were helpful and fun, and multilingual. Players were grouped by ability. The food is spectacular. In the evening, dinner is a bit of an event -- be prepared for several courses served over 2 hours."—S.H., Adv. Int., January 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating Baha Mar, Bahamas
    "This facility is new with all court surfaces available; hard court, HarTru and grass, a total of 9 courts. It's a small facility 5 minute walk from the BahaMar hotel complexes, which is huge and on the beach. The staff is friendly and skilled. When it's windy, the 2 HarTru courts are very windy. Otherwise the complex is beautiful and all the courts are in superb condition. I'd go again in a heartbeat."—S.B., Int., February 2018
