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 Northstar Tennis, California
    "Our experience at Northstar Tennis was exceptional. The setting is picturesque and charming and the courts are well maintained. Most importantly the staff is wonderful. They are friendly, welcoming and know how to ensure a good experience no matter what the level of tennis expertise. The tennis instructions was excellent. We had individuals in our group with minimal experience and those who played on tennis teams back home. Everyone was given individual things to work on and were provided encouragement throughout. The snacks provided for the tennis clinics were modest but delicious. The Friday margarita party after the clinic was a fun way to end the week. The pro shop was quaint, but had all the necessary equipment and supplies. Northstar village is a close walk and has many shops and eateries, making the overall experience exceptional."—J.D., Int., April 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating Reed Anderson Tennis School, California
    "My overall experience at Reed Anderson was exceptional. If fact, I have already made a second adult day camp reservation for next month! My 3 day camp consisted of 3 hours per day of instruction (including many different strokes), video analysis, and match play. I went to the camp solo and was placed in small groups of 3-5 people matched to my skill level. The adjustments the pros recommended for my specific strokes/game were not drastic but rather pretty easy to digest and incorporate right away without setting my game back too much. My fellow campers were enjoyable to play and learn with."—P.S., Adv. Int., April 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating Kapalua Resort, Hawaii
    "Jason puts on an excellent program. We did a week long trip in July with 20 players and the clinics were extensive, the hospitality was top notch, and the Banana Bread was to die for. Jason made all of us feel welcome."—J.B., Pro, April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating Tremblant, Quebec Canada
    "Plenty of courts in a stunning location, overlooking Lac Tremblant. The ground staff are doing an amazing job at keeping the courts in amazing shape. The pros are knowledgeable and friendly with plenty of experience and great tips for game improvement always on hand. The pro shop has a great restringing service, staff there are incredibly friendly and courteous, booking is easy and efficient. Changing rooms and a lovely bar, right on the edge of Lac Tremblant, are right on site. Easily accessible, on-site parking, easy access to Tremblant resort with its plethora of bars and restaurants and outdoor activities. Fantastic place to visit for a tennis camp or plenty of other activities (a water sports centre is right next door, so there is something for the whole family)."—B.W., Adv., April 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre, QR Mexico
    "I recently stayed at the TRS Coral Resort in Costa Mujeres, part of the new Grand Palladium complex built there. I participated in a 3-day premium tennis clinic at the new Rafal Nadal Tennis Centre. It was supposed to be for 1-2 people, but I was lucky as I essentially got a 3-day private clinic. I went at the end of February, and I think the facility opened at the beginning of December. It wasn't that busy yet, as I think they're still growing the program. The tennis facilities are new and super nice. There are 3 covered courts that they use primarily for teaching which is nice, as it doesn't get as hot underneath the Mexican sun. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and it was easy to book courts to play, when not in the clinic. I don't think the resort is known as a tennis destination, as I saw very few people actually playing tennis who stayed there (it felt like it was the same 5 people that were there each day I went). However, the plus side of this, is that the resort definitely feels like a vacation destination and you can happily take a friend or significant other who may not play tennis but will still enjoy their time at the resort. In terms of the teaching, my only quibble was that it would have been nice to have the same instructor for all 3 days, as the instruction was a little disjointed between instructors (even though they said they shared notes). I'm still not sure what the Rafael Nadal program is, as it felt more like a regular clinic/lesson. That being said, the instructors I had for the 3 days were excellent, particularly Hector who was so patient and very good at breaking down the instruction into simpler steps. Overall, the tennis instruction and facilities were on par with any of the best facilities in the US, in a beautiful resort setting. You can have your vacation and tennis camp in one - the best of both worlds!"—M.C., Int., April 2019
