Top-Ranked Tennis Resorts, Camps, and Pickleball Resorts For 2022

Although delayed by the pandemic, Tennis Resorts Online has once again published its list of the Top Tennis Resorts and Camps for 2022. As always, we based these rankings on reviews submitted by tennis vacationers like you. We relied heavily on your evaluations of such tennis criteria as the quality of the staff and instruction, the variety of activities and programs, the success of gamematching, the junior programs, pro shop, and even setting. But you don't spend your entire vacation on court, so we also took into consideration such creature comforts as lodging, cuisine, other recreation, spa and fitness centers, and dollar value. Using a formula that overweights the tennis, we then came up with this year's rankings. But for 2022, we added one new category: the Top Pickleball Resorts. We've excited about finally getting to publish these rankings again. You can see the complete list at Top Tennis And Pickleball Resorts & Camps For 2022 along with the rankings in individual categories. Meanwhile, we're now accepting reviews for the rankings for 2023. To make sure your favorites are in contention, please rate then on our Tennis and Pickleball Reviews page.

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.

  • 4-Ball Rating Ritz-Carlton, Bacara, California
    "I truly enjoyed my tennis experience at the Ritz Calton's Tennis Camp in Santa Barbara. The coaching staff was knowledgeable and encouraging. They were able to help provide small adjustments that made big differences in consistency and placement. The tennis camps were small enough that you were still able to get some focused attention. The private training was great. The only challenge was using courts in free time after camps and lessons to put into place what you worked on."—J.R., Adv. Int., April 2022
  • 3½-Ball Rating Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, California
    "I have a number of tennis friends that would like to try a tennis camp and I feel it's a great way to work on your skills coming onto the competitive tennis season. Where I live in the Vail Valley, our options for tennis in the winter are extremely limited with only two indoor courts in the entire valley. So for me and my friends, having the ability to get top notch instruction and supervised game/play time in our 'off-season' is paramount to us. The only suggestion I would offer for this particular camp and I mean no offense to anyone, would be to make sure the camp participants are at least a 3.5 USTA Level. I feel that 3.5-4.0 can interchange pretty well. And 4.0-4.5 can interchange well too. Just a suggestion."—S.H., Adv. Int., April 2022
  • 4½-Ball Rating Grand Cypress Resort, Florida
    "We have visited this resort twice for the purpose of being able to have my son play tennis and also enjoy the Orlando area fun. Lynn the Pro was responsive and accommodating with private lessons for both our stays. My son liked her approach to teaching and told me he learned more from her than our Pros back home. The fact that the resort has so much to do is also a plus. We played on the 9 hole pitch and put and used the lake's paddle boats. The atmosphere is laid back and positive not stuffy or intimidating."—A.M., Adv. Int., April 2022
  • 4-Ball Rating Palm Island Resort, Florida
    "Art was an outstanding tennis instructor, and I would highly recommend taking lessons from him while vacationing here. Highly recommend him!"—G.A.,  April 2022
  • 5-Ball Rating Boca Raton, 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
