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.

Tennis Europe 250x250

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 Tennnis 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 specifiy 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.

Still, the site needs your input. We want to hear from you about your experience with any resort or camp you know first hand. As an incentive to take the trouble, Tennis Resorts Online is giving away four tennis vacations in an annual drawing . Every review you submit gives you another opportunity to win. To file one for a resort or camp, visit "Write a Review" or "Review a Junior Camp". Finally, let me know of ways you feel the site can be improved (and since we've just gone through a major redesign, please also let me know if there are any technical issues with any of the pages). You can contact me at . See you on the courts. —Roger Cox, Editor

  • 4½-Ball Rating Jonathan Markson Algarve Tennis Centre, Portugal
    "Jonathon markson tennis is just the best. It doesnt seem to matter which country you are in, they always have the best pros! Not only are the pros completely awesome teachers, they are also fabulous personalities and so interestng. The resort choices they give you are fabulous, i absolutely loved my apartment/ resort. I have attended adult Jonathon markson tennis in Italy and Portugal and i can tell you, it would be very difficult to find a better experience. I am a coach, and i have been to many many fine usa resorts, but they pale to this experience."—G.M., Adv. Int., March 2018
  • 4½-Ball Rating Reed Anderson Tennis School, California
    "I highly recommend Reed's school for intermediate and advanced players who want to take they game to the next level. After the 3-day session, I strengthened my ground strokes, found my kick serve, and learned how to fix my smashes and volleys. Reed & his assistant Morgan start by videotaping your strokes and providing impressive feedback, and then taping you doing things correctly. The group drills are unusually fun and instructive. I only wish I'd had more energy after three hours for match play, though I did hit with another student on a nearby grass court. The classes had between 2 and 4 other students, half of whom were repeat customers, which speaks very highly of this school. I will definitely be back myself for a tune-up. If you are looking to hone your tool set, this is the place to visit."—R.S., Adv., January 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating John Newcombe Tennis Ranch, Texas
    "Just returned from a week at the Tennis Ranch. It was an exceptional week of excellent instruction. Strengths: individual attention, high quality feedback, consistent positivity. I also greatly enjoyed watching the Academy Students who were inspiring in both their abilities but also in their total acceptance of a bunch of 3.5 to 4.0 over 50's watching their drills. Food was delicious and plentiful. Chris, Weston, Hunter and Eric all were dedicated to the task at hand of improving the play of a foursome of very average players. I went with my 78 year old dad who has never really taken a lesson and he had a great time. I definitely will return. I also enjoyed side adventures to New Braunfels and Austin. All other camps were super expensive, this one is super reasonable and extremely worth the money."—A.R., Adv. Int., December 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Hawaii
    "The facilities at Mauna Kea are unparalleled. Gorgeous ocean views and terrific staff. I had five days of lessons with Hector Mendoza. This is the second time I worked with him and can't wait to come back. I always learn so much. The resort is our favorite in Hawaii with the best beach."—R.S., Low Int., March 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, Nayarit Mexico
    "The tennis program was great! Both my husband and I took a clinic every morning. Miguel, the tennis pro, always kept things moving and fun, regardless of the various player levels. He was also very generous in the tips and feedback he provided. Although at times there were 6-8 players, he paid attention to each individual and would suggest a little adjustment in stance or swing where appropriate. We were also fortunate enough to participate in an annual doubles tournament where we got to interact with other pros, guests and residents. It was so much fun. I highly recommend the experience."—B.W., Int., March 2018
