Tennis Resorts Online

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 Lodge at Pebble Beach, California
    "The Pebble Beach camps are supper fun. The instructors are high energy, highly motivated and inspiring. Kie puts together a nice group who get to mingle throughout the days. He's very accommodating to everyones needs and can see and create good matches."—A.A., Int., December 2021
  • 4½-Ball Rating Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Hawaii
    "The Seaside Tennis Resort is one of the most spectacular venues to play tennis in the world. Set top the cliffs with the waves crashing near by, it is just so special to be here and experience this setting. The kids tennis academy run by Coach Wayne is world class. He has all of the right equipment for each level of development and he is well versed in all the techniques for helping kids of all ability levels and ages advance their game in an atmosphere that is positive and affirming."—T.W., Adv. Int., January 2022
  • 4-Ball Rating Buccaneer, U.S. Virgin Islands
    "The Buccaneer is an excellent resort on St Croix. USVI We went for the Tennis, the beach and the food. Tennis is run by a group of locals who put in 2 synthetic grass courts which play right after the rain and are great. they have 6 hard courts. There is a local pro who teaches and runs a lot of programs for local kids. I played early morning (7>9 am) with a group of locals and hotel guests who were very friendly. The locals are 3.5>4.5 & one Colin Robertson who was on the tour. Very friendly and great exercise. I did not ask for games outside this time, but there were locals and guests eager to play. Hotel has gold, 3 beaches good snorkel off their beaches. Hotel rooms have been upgraded and ours, on the beach, were great. In the past (2005) they weren't so great. Food at the hotel: breakfast included very nice. Dinners were good. Hotel staff recommended many great restaurants in town. 2 were equal to the best in NYC. Only drawback was the landscaping. It's normal , pleasant. But they were upgrading December 7, 2021. our party was 4 adults, only 1 tennis player , so I relied on them for tennis activity. We will be going back."—R.W., Adv., December 2021
  • 4½-Ball Rating Boca Raton Resort & Club, Florida
    "I must say that my tennis instructor at the Boca Resort was the best I ever had. Eric was able to correct many of my small errors that I improved to quickly. Erice has a very easy way to teach tennis and his skills are incredible!! I recommend him to anyone"—S.C., Low Int., December 2021
  • 4½-Ball Rating John Newcombe Tennis Ranch, Texas
    "Just returned from a weeklong camp at John Newcombe Tennis Ranch. I have been to many well run tennis camps, but this one was by far my favorite. Intense tennis training in a fun environment with other tennis enthusiasts. The pros were terrific and I left with not only improved skills, but practical ways to make continued improvement at home. I found that many of the other campers are repeat visitors (some as many as 7+ times) and I can see why. If you are looking for a camp whose focus is on improving all elements of your game, this is it. Camp is ideal for single travelers given the fun and welcoming atmosphere. Shoutout to Adrian who runs a great program. Can't wait to go back in 2022!"—L.P., Adv. Int., November 2021
