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 John Newcombe Tennis Ranch, Texas
    "I recently attended Newks and must say my experience was fantastic. The energy from the staff was second to none. The staff exhibit incredible teamwork which translates into a tremendous all-around experience on and off court. The instruction from Adrian, Greg, Ryan, et al was superb and, as a bonus, they made me laugh all day long. Even though I should have been exhausted after 7 hours on court that Saturday, the Newk's staff's enthusiasm powered me through! Highly recommended for anyone!"—R.L., Adv. Int., April 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, California
    "I have been to La Quinta Resort twice in the past few months. Both trips were for a girls weekend get away. I highly enjoyed my time there. I was able to set up drills and court time a few weeks prior to our arrival. We played with a few different pros, each skilled and kept our sessions fun. The tennis courts have the beautiful backdrop of the mountains. The fitness center is adjacent to the tennis courts, which is great for stretching before or afterwards. I highly recommend La Quinta for anyone wanting a tennis get away! I will definitely come back."—C.M., Adv. Int., March 2019
  • 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
  • 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
