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

  • 4-Ball Rating Sea Colony, Delaware
    "Enjoyed a week of well run advanced clinics with a friendly, diverse, skilled set of coaches. Great location for a beach vacation for the whole family. On the court, sessions combined fun, challenging drills with competitive play. Particularly enjoyed working with several pros over the course of the week. Also, it was quite convenient to have indoor courts available when mother nature had her own plans."—R.F., Adv., March 2019
  • 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
  • 3½-Ball Rating Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre, QR Mexico
    "Nice variety of high energy drills and skilled instructors in pleasant surroundings. The tennis center is a new facility with 8 excellent red clay courts (3 covered although background in these needs improvement), a cafe, store, locker room and small museum of his memorabilia and other sport exhibits. The fitness center is located in the hotel. The hotel complex is located in a newly developed section of greater Cancun, a 15-20 minute drive from the main town. A nice feature is that one doesn't have to stay at the hotel associated wit the tennis complex but can drive to it from other hotels or houses. I would recommend it to friends. It has a variety of programs for all ages and levels."—M.B., Int., April 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating Wild Dunes Resort, South Carolina
    "We have been going to Wild Dunes Resort for an annual ladies tennis weekend for several years now. It’s is always exceptional. Charlie and his staff provide a valuable, fun court experience. I always learn something new to bring back to my recreational game."—K.H., Adv. Int., March 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating Kapalua Resort, Hawaii
    "Jason puts on an excellent program. We did a week long trip in July with 20 players and the clinics were extensive, the hospitality was top notch, and the Banana Bread was to die for. Jason made all of us feel welcome."—J.B., Pro, April 2019
