Top-Ranked Tennis Resorts, Camps, and Pickleball Resorts For 2022

Although delayed by the pandemic, Tennis Resorts Online has once again published its list of the Top Tennis Resorts and Camps for 2022. As always, we based these rankings on reviews submitted by tennis vacationers like you. We relied heavily on your evaluations of such tennis criteria as the quality of the staff and instruction, the variety of activities and programs, the success of gamematching, the junior programs, pro shop, and even setting. But you don't spend your entire vacation on court, so we also took into consideration such creature comforts as lodging, cuisine, other recreation, spa and fitness centers, and dollar value. Using a formula that overweights the tennis, we then came up with this year's rankings. But for 2022, we added one new category: the Top Pickleball Resorts. We've excited about finally getting to publish these rankings again. You can see the complete list at Top Tennis And Pickleball Resorts & Camps For 2022 along with the rankings in individual categories. Meanwhile, we're now accepting reviews for the rankings for 2023. To make sure your favorites are in contention, please rate then on our Tennis and Pickleball Reviews page.

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 Half Moon Jamaica, Jamaica
    "I have been to many rated tennis resorts including Wild Dunes, Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne and Four Seasons Nevis so I have an excellent idea of the experiences available. I also know the Rosemary Beach tennis center very well, I have not experienced any tennis resort with the dedication to the tennis player experience as Half Moon offered. My comments of the great experience offered began when greeted in the tennis complex and applied to everyone encountered in the tennis facility staff. My highest complete go to the instructor I worked with in clinics and the one on one - Dean Stephens. This was not a feel good approach to a clinic but an honest desire to improve my game / swing. Dean was soft spoken and very patient with me - way beyond other instructors at my club or favorite resort. The pros that I have worked with are all good pros, but so far have not shown their dedication to my game that Dean demonstrated. I will be back to Half Moon to continue to enjoy the undiscovered gem that Half Moon tennis is."—J.C., Int., July 2022
  • 4½-Ball Rating Chateau Elan Winery & Resort, Georgia
    "Resort was beautiful. We had some service issues but everything was dealt with in a professional manner. Resort, especially pool area seemed overwhelmed by the amount of guests present.

    "my son and I vacationed at the port royal westin. We played tennis and pickleball and did clinics/lessons daily. The staff at Port royal was exceptional. It was by far our favorite. The tennis director (Dale) at Port royal is excellent. He can teach you, encourage you and keep you smiling with his personality. I will definitely return."—H.L., Adv., March 2022
