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 Hanalei Bay Resort, Hawaii
    "We have been coming to HBR for the past 5 years and each time I look forward to I taking lessons from Mary Hannsz. In a short and respectful time, Mary has helped me with my game. Mary has arranged many matches with others that are the same advanced level for my husband as well. We have often watched her teach groups of children with amazing patience and skill. You can’t have a better view while playing tennis."—B.D., Int., January 2022
  • 4-Ball Rating PBI Tennis Camp at Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt, Tirol Austria
    "An excellent well planned and hosted tennis week in the beautiful Austrian Tirol. Courts are scenically placed in front of the tinkling cow bells just below the Wilder Kaiser mountains. A friendly bunch of tennis professionals really know their stuff and the place is perfect for relaxing with multiple spa options and a fabulous new spa facility when you aren't on court."—F.S., Adv. Int., September 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
  • 4-Ball Rating Wintergreen Resort, Virginia
    "Colleen was amazing and gave great instruction. She brought lots of energy and great drills and improve our game! Highly recommend her!"—V.J., Adv., November 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.
