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.

Tennis Great Vic Seixas Needs Help With Medical Costs

Former U.S. Championships and Wimbledon winner Vic Seixas at 95 is tennis' oldest living Grand Slam champion. He is now faced with escalating medical costs, and his many friends and fans in the tennis community are banding together to raise funds to underwrite home health care and other costly medical needs. For more about his stellar career and to contribute to a campaign to help him out, visit GoFundMe for Vic Seixas.

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

Here's a sample of recent critiques of resorts and camps by other vacationers, followed by a link where you can post your own.

  • 4½-Ball Rating Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, Florida
    "Outstanding facility and pro shop! The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The clinics are fun and instructional."—I.A., Int., March 2021
  • 4-Ball Rating Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa, California
    "This resort is gorgeous, private and the rooms are loaded with details of luxury. We especially enjoyed the comfy bed, patio privacy with private hot tub, and luxury bathroom. The spa was very charming with healthy perks, but the couples massages were a bit pricey. As a tennis professional who has worked at two top rated tennis resorts on Longboat Key, Florida, I was very impressed with our tennis experience and enjoyed our private clinics with Edwardo and Todd. Todd's lesson after us was running late and he offered additional time and "played in" our clinic with the ladies three against two which made it more competitive for the the guys. The resort has a mix of soft and hard courts. So if you prefer soft you should request them in advance. We came with another couple who had been there previously to celebrate my birthday. In addition, on Sunday 9/19 we happened to meet Garbine Muguruza before her practice session, and she graciously took a photo with us. Lastly, we drove a complimentary Bentley to dinner on two nights of our stay. What a great birthday at a great resort!"—R.S., Pro, September 2021
  • 4-Ball Rating Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii, Hawaii
    "I squeezed in as much tennis as possible while here for an extended work retreat in Nov. 2019 (pre-pandemic). Booking an instructor was super easy as the tennis shop is expertly run. Instruction was very good and I definitely got a lot of 1:1 time with the coach. I had one match with another tennis player there mainly for golf but since he packed his racquet he was ready. The courts are very well maintained, but there wasn't a lot of tennis going on."—R.S., Adv. Int., May 2021
  • 4-Ball Rating Baha Mar, Bahamas
    "I was traveling to Baha Mar on a family vacation and saw the tennis program at the Grand Hyatt was a Cliff Drysdale Property so I knew the tennis instruction and drills would be great! I have done several Cliff Drysdale Ladies retreats and have always had the best time and had very competitive fun tennis. Baha Mar didn't disappoint and the head Pro Jim Tressler was awesome! I am looking forward to going back soon! I hope they soon offer a ladies retreat at Baha Mar. The facilities and weather can't be beat!"—C.W., Adv., August 2021
  • 4-Ball Rating Resort at Longboat Key Club, Florida
    "Great spot for tennis and golf lovers! The staff is fantastic! They set me up with competitive matches and made me feel very welcome! Particularly the staff and pros were friendly and seemed to care about you getting the most out of your time at the resort. The courts are some of the best I’ve ever played on! The beach and the rest of the facilities are nice too. Very kid friendly if that’s your priority."—W.S., Adv., February 2021
