Top 100 Tennis Resorts & Camps for 2019

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

  • 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
  • 5-Ball Rating Tremblant, Quebec Canada
    "Plenty of courts in a stunning location, overlooking Lac Tremblant. The ground staff are doing an amazing job at keeping the courts in amazing shape. The pros are knowledgeable and friendly with plenty of experience and great tips for game improvement always on hand. The pro shop has a great restringing service, staff there are incredibly friendly and courteous, booking is easy and efficient. Changing rooms and a lovely bar, right on the edge of Lac Tremblant, are right on site. Easily accessible, on-site parking, easy access to Tremblant resort with its plethora of bars and restaurants and outdoor activities. Fantastic place to visit for a tennis camp or plenty of other activities (a water sports centre is right next door, so there is something for the whole family)."—B.W., Adv., April 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating Four Seasons Resort Nevis, Nevis, West Indies
    "My wife and I just returned from our 5th trip to the Four Seasons in Nevis. We continually go back for the tennis. We are both avid tennis players and the Four Seasons offers the best tennis in the Caribbean. The tennis facilities are outstanding and Dave Wilson (Director of the tennis program) is awesome. We spend a week there, playing everyday, Dave knew exactly how much or how little instruction too provide to help fine tune our games. And of course no one can beat the service at the Four Seasons or the natural beauty of Nevis."—J.M., Adv., 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
  • 4½-Ball Rating Boca Raton Resort & Club, Florida
    "Came for the tennis and wasn’t disappointed. Erik and Martin were fantastic and my kids loved Todd. Coming back esster"—L.O., Adv. Int., March 2019
