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 Or Pickleball 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

  • 3-Ball Rating Saddlebrook Tennis (Hopman), Florida
    "Saddlebrook Hopman is a great place if you want to work on your tennis skills. Steve and Ed were very technical and helpful in improving my game, and were teaching me all the things to move me from a 4.0 to 4.5 player. They were patient and proactive in letting me know my areas of improvement so I appreciate that! I love Warren's energy and fun-loving nature, a must when you are playing tennis 5 hours a day! The resort is going through a transition and needs some improvements. There was only 1 restaurant open for dinner and many of the amenities (e.g. game room, spa) were unavailable. If you can stick to the tennis aspect of your trip, Saddlebrook is fantastic!"—V.E., Adv. Int., September 2022
  • 4-Ball Rating Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa, California
    "Galina was high energy and so fun. She and V had some fun creative was to teach different concepts on the courts. Our group of girls loved them. I also got a great workout. All around a terrific two days of clinic. We just wished there was a cute pro shop for us to buy merchandise. Would have loved a cute hat or top to show off at home."—D.S., Int., September 2022
  • 4½-Ball Rating Hanalei Bay Resort, Hawaii
    "Mary is fantastic and brings a lot of energy to the court. She was very accommodating and made us feel welcome. She helped my game and was all around fabulous."—L.B., Adv. Int., September 2022
  • 4½-Ball Rating Van Der Meer Tennis, Shipyard, South Carolina
    "I've been vacationing on HHI for years and taken private lessons very early in the AM every year. I was very happy to find out that Dhiren Patel was back on staff this summer. He is an excellent coach and even though I've been taking lessons for years he always adds something to my game. This year we had Dhiren give a lesson to our 5 and 6 year old boys. He managed to keep them happy and active for an hour. They had so much fun that they can't wait to take another lesson. If you are on the island in the summer be sure to check out Van Der Meer Shipyard and ask for Dhiren."—C.C., Int., August 2022
