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

  • 4½-Ball Rating Northstar Tennis, California
    "Our experience at Northstar Tennis was exceptional. The setting is picturesque and charming and the courts are well maintained. Most importantly the staff is wonderful. They are friendly, welcoming and know how to ensure a good experience no matter what the level of tennis expertise. The tennis instructions was excellent. We had individuals in our group with minimal experience and those who played on tennis teams back home. Everyone was given individual things to work on and were provided encouragement throughout. The snacks provided for the tennis clinics were modest but delicious. The Friday margarita party after the clinic was a fun way to end the week. The pro shop was quaint, but had all the necessary equipment and supplies. Northstar village is a close walk and has many shops and eateries, making the overall experience exceptional."—J.D., Int., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating Tremblant, Quebec Canada
    "Plenty of courts in a stunning location, overlooking Lac Tremblant. The ground staff are doing an amazing job at keeping the courts in amazing shape. The pros are knowledgeable and friendly with plenty of experience and great tips for game improvement always on hand. The pro shop has a great restringing service, staff there are incredibly friendly and courteous, booking is easy and efficient. Changing rooms and a lovely bar, right on the edge of Lac Tremblant, are right on site. Easily accessible, on-site parking, easy access to Tremblant resort with its plethora of bars and restaurants and outdoor activities. Fantastic place to visit for a tennis camp or plenty of other activities (a water sports centre is right next door, so there is something for the whole family)."—B.W., Adv., April 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating Resort at Longboat Key Club, Florida
    "Just came back from a wonderful trip to The Resort at Longboat Key. It was one of the best tennis facilities/clubs I've ever been to. Everything was better than I anticipated: from the friendly and accommodating staff in the tennis shop (Sue and the other ladies), the beautiful har tru courts, the excellent clinics and lessons with top-notch Pros - John, Jen , Thomas and Mirage. I learn something different from each Pro...all adding something of value to improve my game. I have never been to a tennis facility where everyone was so friendly and the instruction so incredibly good. I learned more about my game in a few days then I have all year! Cannot wait to return."—M.P., Int., February 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating Wintergreen Tennis Academy, Virginia
    "I enjoyed all 3 days of instruction with Kostyantyn Khodirev. He gave us advanced instruction with many fun and informative drills. Each day began with stretching exercises and warmups. We continued with specific patterned drills to help us with our doubles strategy. Definitely strong drills and great energy through out the entire 3 days of instruction. Couldn’t believe how quickly the time went by. We all enjoyed a wonderful Swedish deep tissue massage between day 2 and 3 and also took advantage of the outdoor pool and hot tubs. Found great restaurants and Mountain View’s from our unit were spectacular. Main focus was for the tennis but we also enjoyed all Wintergreen has to offer."—L.D., Adv. Int., September 2018
  • 5-Ball Rating Pinehurst Resort, North Carolina
    "I had a fantastic time. From the minute you step on the property, the staff was friendly, smart and accommodating. The facilities were clean and top notch."—S.C., Int., April 2019
