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

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 Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, California
    "Omni La Costa is an outstanding place to go for adult tennis "camps". They create a custom program for you, based on your schedule, level of play, and interests. I came for a 3 day experience (Friday/Saturday/Sunday), which ended up being a mix of group clinics and private lessons. The pros are honestly outstanding, and easily the best I have worked with. Enthusiastic, supportive, and extremely good at teaching to my level. It was a fantastic experience. I did not stay at the hotel (I found a cheaper room nearby), but the grounds are lovely. Its so nicely set up, with easy strolling to get food or coffee, easy (free) parking, and just a relaxing place. The tennis pro shop has anything you might need, including (free) demo rackets from Head. I can say that if you are looking for something like this, I would really say go for it here. It was such a good experience. I want to come back soon!"—P.M., Int., September 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating Resort at Longboat Key Club, Florida
    "The courts and facilities are exceptional. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. They will arrange matches, clinics and lessons. We highly recommend and will hopefully be back soon!"—S.M., Int., November 2019
  • 3½-Ball Rating Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre, QR Mexico
    "Stayed at this resort in the Spring of 2019. Resort is new and beautiful. We stayed in the adults only section which is a good 15-20 minute walk to the tennis courts. However, there are shuttles (even boats) that you can easily grab to take you where you want to go. Tennis center is very nice- new. Upper area is a Nadal Museum with memorabilia. There are 3 covered clay courts, a single stadium court and about 3 other outdoor courts. It was not crowded and very easy to book courts. They did not offer match play or set up any tennis for guests. Facility is all clay courts- not hard courts or grass. We went to one clinic- it was "ok". Nothing exceptional. But very friendly staff with energy. Resort is all-inclusive. Very clean. Friendly staff. Food good for all-inclusive. Lots of options and entertainment. We paid extra to upgrade to a two-story room with hot tub on balcony. Worth every penny. Room service very slow but it was a great option. I would definitely go back but since courts are all outdoor I would consider the weather when booking a tennis vacation. It gets hot! We played early mornings and had no issues."—B.B., Adv., October 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating Waterville Valley Resort, New Hampshire
    "Tom Gross is an exceptional teacher who always seems to know just the right thing to suggest to help you improve your tennis - regardless of your playing level. He is also very personable and his lessons and clinics are a terrific mix of fun, hard work, and skill building. I have recommended many people to him over the years - and I credit him with keeping me competitive over the many years I have been playing! As an added bonus, the views from the courts are spectacular and there are many family-friendly activities in the region."—H.T., Adv. Int., November 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt, Tirol Austria
    "This was the most interactive, fun and amazing tennis camp my husband and I have been to. It's hard to have a bad time- when you arrive at the Bio-Hotel you are surrounded by beautiful mountains and the Hotel is a slice of heaven. Our coaches changed our game. The instruction gives you the ability to learn quickly and easily then you have the opportunity each day to build on what you have learned. You instantly feel like you have joined a family- and one that cares! They want you to grow and develop your game. It was so much fun to learn in an atmosphere where you are encouraged and corrected. When your not in Tennis Camp you can enjoy one of 4 pools, the amazing spa and you can also hike the mountains! This is a gem of a place and game changing!"—L.P., Int., April 2018
