Here's what others have had to say about John Newcombe Tennis Ranch.

  • 4½-Ball Rating "Just returned from a weeklong camp at John Newcombe Tennis Ranch. I have been to many well run tennis camps, but this one was by far my favorite. Intense tennis training in a fun environment with other tennis enthusiasts. The pros were terrific and I left with not only improved skills, but practical ways to make continued improvement at home. I found that many of the other campers are repeat visitors (some as many as 7+ times) and I can see why. If you are looking for a camp whose focus is on improving all elements of your game, this is it. Camp is ideal for single travelers given the fun and welcoming atmosphere. Shoutout to Adrian who runs a great program. Can't wait to go back in 2022!"—L.P., Adv. Int., November 2021
  • 4½-Ball Rating "If you haven't been to the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch for a weekend getaway or for a fantasy camp recently, you're missing out. The program has been markedly upgraded in the past 2 to 3 years and is a can't miss week or weekend. As someone who has been going at least 2 x year for the last 20 years, I am appreciative of the changes in the last 2 or so years. Adrian and Mitch are two of the most fun people around yet incredibly profession. The energy is fantastic and the exception tennis instruction is only exceeded by the after hours social life."—M.F., Adv., November 2020
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I loved it. They worked me hard and instructors were absolutely great, so much energy and enthusiasm. Food was incredible, Ranch was kept spotless. Living quarters were extremely comfortable and clean. We had a problem with our room and, with no hesitation, they accommodated us and changed our room! Six of us went to the Ranch and all 6 of us want to go back again."—R.R., Adv., November 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "Tennis. This is what Newks is. Truly... Newks is one of the few places I can come to and feel both on vacation and at home. People say this place doesn’t change, I disagree, it only gets better each time I come. This year I came with my nephews and had them join the junior camp while I plaid in the adult camp with Adrian and Gregor... they haven’t stopped asking me when they can come back. Truly a dream for an uncle to hear, Phil, Mitch, Mariel and Esther run a truly world class junior tennis camp experience. We’ll be back, just have to wait a couple more months! Find the time to give your tennis game the best gift you can give it, get yourself to Newks!"—C.K., Adv., April 2019

  • 5-Ball Rating "It’s the perfect destination for tennis and so many other adventures. It has a unique history and it is very close to two very popular cities. Definitely a place to visit with loved ones, on your own, or for business or leisure travels."—E.D., Adv., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "I owe most of my best and favorite memories that involve a tennis racket to the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch. While of course I love the tennis instructor from such a vibrant staff, it is also the amazing off-court experiences that I will truly cherish."—H.P., Adv. Int., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "By far the best tennis vacation! Went above & beyond my expectations. Job well done NEWKS!!!"—T.B., Adv., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "John Newcombe Tennis Ranch is AWESOME!! Our son as gone to their Summer and Winter Youth Camps for several years, and each time he has had an amazing time and improved his game. The campus is BEAUTIFUL, the courts are excellent and plentiful, and the coaches are top notch! You won't find a better value, better coaching, more beautiful setting or more fun experience anywhere! Their High School Winter Weekend Camps are terrific as well! We highly recommend!"—M.B., Adv. Int., April 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I had an exceptional week at the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch! It met all my expectations and then some! The coaches were all professional and personable. Adrian, Gregory #legend, Price, Hunter, Juan and Chris are top notch instructors and gave us great direction with every lesson. My game improved! I was not able to volley, lob, and serve return confidently until they were covered by the team of coaches. This def is more valuable than private lesson imo because you are more invested in the development of your tennis game while being in the ranch, living and breathing tennis for a week. The coaches all have great personalities and always made us feel welcomed. My group and I, again, had an amazing time and I couldn't of asked for a better time out! Money, travel, and time well spent! I came out of this camp a better tennis player for sure! I also started listening to more country music which is a great thing!"—C.A., Int., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "Just finished a girls trip to John Newcombe's Tennis Ranch and had a BLAST!!! This was my first tennis camp experience, but have to say it will definitely be hard to beat. Three of us stayed on the ranch for their full week program and couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Here are my thoughts about the trip: Tennis - We opted in for the full week of tennis (full of 3 hour mornings and 2.5 hour afternoons -- WOW)! Before coming to the ranch, wasn't sure I'd survive! For reference: We are used to hitting 2-3 hours at a time, 2-3 times per week at home. Let me tell you, the tennis pros did an amazing job tailoring to our skill set. Not only was the pace perfect, but we each came back better players and with fitter bodies ;) Insider Hint: We brought in a massage therapist three evenings of the week for 1-hour deep-tissue massages (YES -- talk about fair-weather tennis players!!) However, this was KEY to playing 100% the next day and learning/making the most out of our time there. Pros - Adrian, Hunter, Price & Gregor Honestly: the nicest/coolest guys work at the ranch!! Not only are they REALLY good tennis players that know how to clearly articulate their coaching tips, they're also extremely hospitable, friendly and HILARIOUS!! (+bonus: they're all AMAZING dancers) -- the evenings are full of nothing but laughs & good times!! Every day, the pros rotate with the multiple adult groups at the camp. I found this to be really beneficial -- getting new perspectives on different techniques. One way or another, one of their suggestions/tips would stick with my playing style. The Ranch & Food - The Ranch is a BEAUTIFUL gem just outside of San Antonio. The tennis courts are cleanly kept and even though the majority of courts are outdoors (both clay and concrete), they have a fair number of indoor courts for rainy weather -- so you won't miss out on a single day of tennis! The food at the ranch was REALLY good as well. Three meals a day - buffet style - with MORE than enough options to leave full and powered up for your next lesson. Only miss: found that the bar would close a little early some nights. Although there were a few liquor stores nearby, we didn't have a mini-fridge to keep our drinks cool...didn't stop us from having a great time though! Accommodations - The three of us stayed in a room with two queen beds and one bathroom. More than enough room! The beds were comfy, bathroom had good space, but honestly we didn't need to spend much time there since the staff kept us busy during the days & exhausted in the evenings that we went straight to sleep! Down-side: Unfortunately, by the time we booked our trip, all the rooms with in-suite laundry were taken. This would have been KEY with all the dirty tennis outfits...not that we ran out of clothes, but the dirty laundry would make the room smell if it wasn't air-packed away! Other Notes - As I mentioned, I went with two others to the ranch and we had an amazing time! I would definitely recommend going with friends around the same level -- they do a great job of keeping you all together on top of introducing you to others and meeting new people. Would I Go Back? 100% YES To all the staff at John Newcombe's: Thank you for an AMAZING vacation week at the ranch. Couldn't have asked for a better time - you all exceeded our expectations (which were high to begin with lol) and we can't wait to see you again soon!!"—J.T., Adv. Int., April 2019
