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

Here's a sample of recent critiques of resorts and camps by other vacationers, followed by a link where you can post your own.

  • 4½-Ball Rating Wintergreen Tennis Academy, Virginia
    "They have 1 pro per court and teach over 3 days. It covers stroke, strategy and conditioning. If you want a different mix then talk to them before and they can customize the teaching. The real plus, though, is that the pros are patient but no nonsense. They watch what you do and correct. Our group was very happy with the instruction and workout."—E.F., Adv. Int., April 2018
  • 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 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 Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa, California
    "Rancho Valencia runs an absolutely first class tennis program, and it doesn't hurt that it's in the middle of an amazing and beautiful luxury resort and spa. The tennis professional staff is second-to-none, with a long list of pros with serious playing and technical skills who are uniformly friendly and helpful. I was there for five days, played with three pros, had three games arranged by the shop, and my wife did three clinics. Each of these was excellent, fun, technically helpful and additive to our tennis games. The tennis facilities are beautiful, consistent with the rest of the resort, courts, shop, changing facilities and surroundings are first-class quality and perfectly maintained. The resort itself is amazing, with lodging, staff, restaurants, pools, spa, yoga, gym and environment of the very highest quality. We consistently recommend Rancho Valencia to all of our friends who might enjoy what we consider the perfect get-away, whether they are a serious competitive tennis player or just looking for a relaxing break."—D.H., Adv., April 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, California
    "My husband and I came for the first time in early March 2018 for a 2-day weekend getaway during the BNP tennis tournament. We really enjoyed the clinics, the absolutely hilariously awesome "Tennis Show" (with raffle prizes!), and the pro staff were extremely attentive to our tennis needs. Since we had such a great time, we decided to visit again in less than a month! We came back at the end-March/early-April 2018 during Spring Break/Easter, brought our kids, and we stayed longer for 4 days to play more tennis, enjoy the resort, and take lessons with head pro Dave Kensler, who was amazingly wonderful in accommodating my husband and I with daily lessons during our stay. He also did a fun clinic with my kids!....I cannot wait to go back because it is such a fun tennis escape! Through my lessons I learned of many ways to help improve my game that I could quickly implement in my USTA matches as soon as I returned home. Thanks to the great staff for being helpful and accommodating. I look forward to more tennis getaways to this beautiful Tennis Oasis in the desert!!! :-)"—J.M., Int., April 2018
