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.

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 a Cliff Drysdale tennis holiday for two at Omni Amelia Island Plantation in our 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 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
  • 3½-Ball Rating Cliff Drysdale Tennis School at Stratton, Vermont
    "Rob and his team are amazing. Their level of experience is outstanding. Their passion for tennis clearly shows through in their teaching abilities. They make all feel welcome and their animation throughout the lesson keeps it fun and fast paced. I have often felt intimidated in other group type lessons but Rob and his team are professional, courteous and even in a group setting can offer personalized instruction to help each person better their skills. I look forward to going back!"—S.T., Beg., June 2018
  • 4½-Ball Rating Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa, California
    "I'm a picky vacationer, but it's hard to find anything to pick on in this 3 days/2 night trip. Strengths: - Plenty of courts (even has 2 new clay courts) very well maintained. - Very easy to book court time, and flexible in last-minute schedule changes - Courteous patient coaches (I tried 2 of them, 2 one-hour sessions each) with spot-on insights - Nice court amenities especially for hot days - Excellent dining / quality of dinner food - 900 sq ft room is spacious, luxurious, and private - Enjoyed the spa treatment too, very relaxing facility Weakness: - Jaw-drop pricey for overnight stay, but you get the exclusivity and you get what you pay"—S.H., Adv. Int., July 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating Buccaneer, U.S. Virgin Islands
    "One of the most relaxing hotels in the Caribbean. A large property with the tennis and golf course surrounding the hotel. The tennis facility has 8 good quality hard courts. The staff is excellent and accommodating. The tennis program has a variety of clinic and social programs all week. Arranged matches between locals and hotel guest are possible but player availability varies between the high season, winter, and summer."—B.H., Adv. Int., August 2018
  • 5-Ball Rating Andy Findlay's Intense Tennis Camps, Pennsylvania
    "This camp is fantastic! This was my child’s first camp experience and it was a great one! The week finished with not only growth as a tennis player, but growth as a person! Increase in self-confidence that was exhibited on and off of the court! Wonderful program, wonderful counselors...will be attending again for sure!"—J.D., Int., August 2018
