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.

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 Tennnis 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 specifiy 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.

Still, the site needs your input. We want to hear from you about your experience with any resort or camp you know first hand. As an incentive to take the trouble, Tennis Resorts Online is giving away four tennis vacations in an annual drawing . Every review you submit gives you another opportunity to win. To file one for a resort or camp, visit "Write a Review" or "Review a Junior Camp". Finally, let me know of ways you feel the site can be improved (and since we've just gone through a major redesign, please also let me know if there are any technical issues with any of the pages). You can contact me at . See you on the courts. —Roger Cox, Editor

  • 4½-Ball Rating Kiawah Island Golf Resort, South Carolina
    "The Roy Barth Tennis Center at Kiawah Island Golf Resort is terrific! You get a chance to work with different, very enthusiastic pros, all great, and I have spent many hours on the court with David and Langdon, who help me with those minor changes that make a big difference. The courts are surrounded by the lush vegetation of Kiawah Island and a quick bike ride away from miles of beautiful beaches. Tennis, beach, bike, golf, kayaking - who could ask for more!"—D.H., Int., April 2018
  • 5-Ball Rating Wild Dunes Resort, South Carolina
    "My wife, my three boys (ages 18, 15 and 13) and I go to various resorts with tennis during the year as we are all tennis players (at varying levels). Wild Dunes is by far our best experience as they have the quality pros who are able to teach to our different levels (national tournaments on down to regional tournaments to recreational) in a way in which we all walk away feeling like we learned and improved our tennis. The pros (led by Charly and Shawn) do so in a manner that supplements ones "home" pro's teachings in a way to add to our development in an always positive manner. Every arrangement and interaction is so easy as well. Equally important, all is done with not just thoughtfulness and clarity but with great humor that makes the experience truly memorable. We look forward to going back again as soon as we can!!"—S.S., Adv., February 2018
  • 4½-Ball Rating Four Seasons Resort Nevis, Nevis, West Indies
    "Great drills and pointers. David Wilson is a top notch instructor as well as a personable guy who made us feel very relaxed. We participated in a number of drills and a local mixer that was a ball. I highly recommend the Four Seasons Nevis if you are looking for a stunning location with great tennis facilities."—D.R., Adv. Int., May 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating New England Tennis Holidays at Sugarbush, Vermont
    "Beautiful location, new friends, super instructors, fantastic lodging and food, and 5 hours of tennis! Who could ask for more! GREAT time for any age! You won't be disappointed and you'll want to go back! I do!!!"—K.H., Int., April 2018
  • 4½-Ball Rating Gstaad Palace/Roy Emerson Tennis Weeks, Switzerland
    "Voted #1 on almost every tennis camp internet search, Roy Emmerson's Tennis Weeks in Gstaad, Switzerland lives up to—and beyond—it's stellar reputation. The accommodation and hospitality, scenery and schedule, tennis pros and Roy, create an experience like no other. From the day you arrive, Roy and Joy welcome you to their summer home-away-from-home, and to their tennis family. Each day is packed with practice, wise instruction, tips, tricks, drills and feisty competition and match play. Each evening is a round robin of socializing with new friends, extraordinary food, necessary cocktails and nursing weary muscles. The week I spent with Roy was an absolute once-in-a-lifetime experience. So much so that I'm going again this year."—S.P., Adv. Int., April 2018
