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

Your Recent Reviews

Every time you review a resort or camp between now and April 30, 2020, you'll be automatically entered in a drawing to win a holiday at New England Tennis Holidays at Sugarbush, in Vermont.
Here's a sample of recent critiques of resorts and camps by other vacationers, followed by a link where you can post your own.

  • 4-Ball Rating Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club, South Carolina
    "The staff was very friendly & efficient. Dale, the Director of Tennis, and our instructor was great! He helped me work on my weaknesses and was very positive in his instruction. He kept us moving which I really like. Great courts and atmosphere. Would definitely come back. Also had a clinic with George and he was good too. He took time from his day off to accommodate my friend and I since we couldn't do a clinic at Harbortown due to the National Junior Tournament."—R.V., Int., September 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt, Tirol Austria
    "This was the most interactive, fun and amazing tennis camp my husband and I have been to. It's hard to have a bad time- when you arrive at the Bio-Hotel you are surrounded by beautiful mountains and the Hotel is a slice of heaven. Our coaches changed our game. The instruction gives you the ability to learn quickly and easily then you have the opportunity each day to build on what you have learned. You instantly feel like you have joined a family- and one that cares! They want you to grow and develop your game. It was so much fun to learn in an atmosphere where you are encouraged and corrected. When your not in Tennis Camp you can enjoy one of 4 pools, the amazing spa and you can also hike the mountains! This is a gem of a place and game changing!"—L.P., Int., April 2018
  • 3½-Ball Rating Buccaneer, U.S. Virgin Islands
    "We are pickleball players and Buccaneer makes great effort to serve our needs no matter how many or few. They are working towards a pickleball program that we islanders and tourists will be able to enjoy the fastest game in world. Look forward to clinics and world class tournaments in our future Thanks Gayle and Stan for making it work so well."—T.S.,  September 2019
  • 3½-Ball Rating Saddlebrook Tennis (Hopman), Florida
    "Spent 3 days at The Hopman Camp at Saddlebrook in early 2019. The grounds are beautiful and the staff are friendly. Saddlebrook isn't the newest or fanciest resort on the planet but when it comes to the tennis grounds, it's unsurpassed. I did this trip solo as I've always wanted to spend a few days honing my tennis skills with as much focus on tennis as possible. I have to say I loved my time there. I did a camp on day 1, two private lessons on day 2, and camp on day 3. I'd recommend that format to anybody who is unsure of doing back to back days. They can be long, physically demanding days and waking up at 7am the next morning to do it all over again didn't sound fun to me. Instead, having a sleep in on day 2 with a couple of afternoon privates was the perfect 3 day tennis treat. Relaxing but still purposeful. Want to mention Will Rhame as his private lessons honestly changed my tennis game forever. His focus on the kinetic chain finally made all of my previous years of tennis lessons make sense. I'm using a number of his techniques now and I've moved from an okay 4.0 to a strong 4.5. Playing consistently at that level now has made tennis 1000x more fun. All of the instructors are great at Hopman and I'd recommend hitting with as many as you can. Each will give you invaluable advice. Enjoy your tennis!"—J.L., Adv. Int., September 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating Wintergreen Tennis Academy, Virginia
    "Great tennis academy. The pros are outstanding at identifying your weaknesses and improving upon them. Kostyantyn, Shelley and David are great !! Beautiful setting in the Blue Ridge mountains."—M.P., Adv. Int., September 2019
