Tennis Resorts Online has just published in annual rankings of the Top 100 Tennis Resorts & Camps. To create it, we relied on the reviews submitted by tennis vacationers over the past year. Our report form asks for opinions about everything from the quality of the game matching, tennis staff, instruction, and programming to the appeal of such creature comforts as lodging and cuisine. In all, readers assessed more that 20 categories. We then compiled that data to generate this year's rankings. To see how your favorites fared visit the Top 100 Tennis Resorts & Camps.

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 Academia Sanchez-Casal Florida, Florida
    "Just completed my fifth ASC 4 day trip. As usual great laid back yet serious instruction. 3 hours on court. Lots of running but handleable. Shout out to pros Oscar and Ismael. Also Viviana and her staff. Good value as well with delicious healthy lunch included. And you can’t beat Naples beaches and restaurants. Can’t wait to return! And if you are lucky you will meet Emilio Sanchez, a real gentleman"—Z.A., Adv. Int., April 2019
  • 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
  • 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
  • 4-Ball Rating Resort at Longboat Key Club, Florida
    "Just came back from a wonderful trip to The Resort at Longboat Key. It was one of the best tennis facilities/clubs I've ever been to. Everything was better than I anticipated: from the friendly and accommodating staff in the tennis shop (Sue and the other ladies), the beautiful har tru courts, the excellent clinics and lessons with top-notch Pros - John, Jen , Thomas and Mirage. I learn something different from each Pro...all adding something of value to improve my game. I have never been to a tennis facility where everyone was so friendly and the instruction so incredibly good. I learned more about my game in a few days then I have all year! Cannot wait to return."—M.P., Int., February 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating Reed Anderson Tennis School, California
    "My overall experience at Reed Anderson was exceptional. If fact, I have already made a second adult day camp reservation for next month! My 3 day camp consisted of 3 hours per day of instruction (including many different strokes), video analysis, and match play. I went to the camp solo and was placed in small groups of 3-5 people matched to my skill level. The adjustments the pros recommended for my specific strokes/game were not drastic but rather pretty easy to digest and incorporate right away without setting my game back too much. My fellow campers were enjoyable to play and learn with."—P.S., Adv. Int., April 2019
