  • 5-Ball Rating "An incredible tennis experience from top to bottom. Can't wait to go back!"—L.I., Adv., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating ""—G.M., Low Int., April 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating "Beautiful location, lots of courts. Friendly staff and good coaching. The tennis shop is huge. The only draw back is that is does seem to rain on and off during the day because of it's location."—D.V., Adv. Int., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "I came here with my fiance and we loved every minute of it! As avid tennis players, we loved how we could incorporate it into our vacation. We went to a few clinics with director Jason Purcell and his co-worker Nick. They were able to conduct a great class with players from all levels. The best part about playing tennis here is the gorgeous view overlooking the coast on one side and the volcano on the other. After the clinics and matches we joined our new classmates for lunch at the Pineapple Grill - the food there is delectable! We walked and drove through the resort and it is literal paradise. We have yet to find a better vacation spot than the Kapalua Tennis Garden! We look forward to returning!"—A.S., Adv., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "We can’t say enough great things about our time at Kapalua! The clinics were awesome, there were at least 3 socials when we were there and to top it off even our kids had an amazing leason with the director of tennis there, Jason Purcell. They wanted to go back to him every day! He was incredible - took the time to really help on and off the court to make our vacation one to never forget. We want to go back every year!!"—D.S., Int., April 2019
  • 3½-Ball Rating "Gorgeous venue with 4 newly re-surfaced courts, and nice shaded sections on the ends. Staff is amazing - so friendly and genuine, and always willing to give you tips to improve your game. Love the morning live ball clinics! Only downside - Napili gets a decent amount of rain, but that can't be faulted to the Tennis Garden! :)"—C.E., Adv., April 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "Brilliant team. Exceptional insight to training, strategy and philosophy. And a brilliant setting and views that are probably unsurpassed anywhere in the world. Absolutely exceptional. cant wait to be back. The only weakness is the weather is a bit unpredictable but they make up and work with you to easily reschedule. And bring sunscreen."—M.S., Int., April 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating "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 "I go to Kapalua Tennis Gardens several times a year bc we own at the Montage nearby. I usually take a group of tennis ladies with me. Jason runs a great program for us! We always have a fun time and learn something new to take home. He can manage groups of all levels and keep it interesting and high energy for all of us. Nick (pro) is another super knowledgeable instructor with a wicked game. The pros and staff are some of the nicest, most accommodating and warmest people I’ve ever met. The setting is lovely with views of the ocean and golf course, and courts well maintained with four courts in mint condition and the other six in ok condition. I enjoy my visits every time and love meeting usta players from all over the country. It’s such a friendly atmosphere and so collegial always. Highly recommend Kapalua Tennis!"—H.L., Adv. Int., January 2019
  • 5-Ball Rating "As an enthusiastic tennis addict, Kapalua Tennis Garden is a place where I get my favorite “fix”. I am always dying to go back for more! Anyone who enjoys the game needs to play here. The courts are prestine, the view is spectacular and the surroundings are so beautiful it deserves the name “paradise”! But the most important reason to go? I would have to say the tennis instruction! Jason Purcell’s personal talent, coaching skills and enthusiasm for improving your game is as breathtaking as the surroundings! If you are planning a vacation in Maui and play tennis, make sure you carve out the time to play here everyday during your stay, trust me!"—T.R., Adv. Int., January 2019
  • 4-Ball Rating "The clinics are great. Courts are great and Jason is wonderful!"—M.M., Adv., January 2019
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Kapalua Tennis was simply amazing! I came to Hawaii for over 1 week and was here every day mingling and playing with other guests and the superb pro's. I look forward to coming back and will be recommending it to everyone I meet. Teaching Professional Nick was one of the most friendly and knowledgeable tennis guru's I've ever met in my life. His drills were fun, and his drop in classes were spot on for placing us with appropriate skill level and enjoyment."—B.G., Pro, April 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating "I have enjoyed playing tennis at the kapalua on and off your years. I had not been back since 2015 and wow what a difference! Nick was fantastic and jason was able to was able to tweak my game to have even greater success. Since i got home I have been crushing it on the court! I also thought Debbi was a delight, so helpful! I cant wait to come be back at the end of the summer for a long tennis vacation with my girlfriends."—J.F., Int., April 2018
  • 4-Ball Rating "I LOVED my experience at Kapalua Tennis Gardens because of Jason, Nick and Debbi. Jason was a phenomenal teacher and as a newer tennis player that makes a huge difference. Jason’s knowledge and patience made it a great learning experience - so much fun. Nick brought the aloha to the double’s socials - such good vibes. I could tell that the whole team worked well together and Debbi couldn’t have been more helpful in the retail shop. I highly recommend people play at Kapalua Tennis (with Jason)."—G.B., Low Int., April 2018
  • 5-Ball Rating "Loved this place !!! Played tennis everyday...the setting so gorgeous and they had clinics every morning. The pros were great !! Everyone was so nice...can't wait to come back. The most incredible place I've ever been...most relaxing and beautiful."—K.E., Adv., March 2018
  • 4½-Ball Rating "While the facility isnt world-class (yet) the staff definitely is. Between Jason, Nick and Debbi these guys are the best. Always accommodating and going the extra mile. Their clinics and instruction is ALWAYS on point, direct and insightful. Don't know how they keep up the great energy and enthusiam, but you'll see it each and everyday. Really can't say enough good things the Kapalua tennis gardens under Jason's direction."—T.Y., Adv. Int., August 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "We last visited here 5 years ago. The new skill-level specific programming that has been introduced since our last visit was ideal. Challenged both of us and pitted us against like-skilled players. The setting is so idyllic that a windy or misty day is easily forgotten. When you chose Kapalua it's because there is no better setting on the island for playing tennis. The other resorts do not have the tranquil setting or cooling breezes Kapalua has, the latter making the tennis far more bearable in the strong Hawaiian sun. The tennis pass was a great investment too since we played daily which gave us discounts. Just wish they offered organized match making so I didn't have to give that business to another resort where the setting was far less idyllic."—P.S., Adv. Int., May 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I really enjoy going to Kapalua Tennis Garden. They have great instructors and beautiful courts. There is always something going on there. Either alone or in a group this place is ideal. Jason is a great guy with very solid tennis instruction and gives good feedback. He is truly interested in improving your game."—M.R., Adv. Int., May 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "Beautiful facility and friendly staff. Debbi in the shop takes care of any and all tennis needs. Great place to play!"—A.W., Low Int., April 2017
  • 2½-Ball Rating "The complex is in a beautiful setting and the courts are well maintained. The instructional and shop staff are quite helpful. There are a lot of clinics one can take. The biggest change this year is that setting up matches was virtually discontinued. Fees for locals and visitors were increased. This has resulting in a lot of the locals choosing to play at another complex. We play at a lower level and found a lot at our level (3.0 - 3.5) weren't available now for set up play."—R.E., Int., April 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "This is one of, if not the most beautiful tennis facilities I've ever seen. Jason Purcell is a world class instructor and Director. I will definitely be back! It's too amazing not to."—J.G., Adv., April 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "Great friendly staff. Good tennis instructors. Good experience."—R.W., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 3½-Ball Rating ""—B.G., Adv., April 2017
  • 3½-Ball Rating "Plenty of courts, friendly and professional staff. Clinics are great as was drop in doubles. Wind can be a challenge, but can be a great excuse for every shot you miss."—P.D., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating ""—R.B., Adv., April 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "Still one of the best facilities to play tennis in the world. LOVE the new team in place, they continue to make tennis fun and enjoyable for all."—S.S., Low Int., April 2017

  • 3½-Ball Rating ""—R.P., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Great facility and 10 day pass was perfect."—C.P., Int., April 2017
  • 2½-Ball Rating "This resort has completely jumped the shark. Locals won't play here (unless they have to) The tourist are all old poor/novice players It was when the management changed this place wen t down hill The desk lady DOES NOT MATCH ARRANGE - they are basically worth less now because the drop in doubles has SUPER BEGINNER PLAYERS"—J.T., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I had another great experience at The Kapalua Tennis garden! The staff is full of energy and so welcoming. I visit at Christmas every other year and even see some of the same guests each year. The drills were well run and grouped by level. The drop in doubles is especially fun! Match arranging wasn't as organized as some years - it was a work in progress."—M.E., Adv., April 2017
  • 4½-Ball Rating ""—C.F., Low Int., March 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "Unbelievable setting for tennis. The pros have tons of experience and were able to improve my technique while giving me great workout."—G.M., Beg., March 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "Great tennis in the midst of lovely Kapalua Resort. An oasis on Maui. Pros are wonderful and setting is heavenly."—B.L., Int., February 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "I came to the Kapalua Resort from Phoenix, Arizona in late August/early September of 2016. The resort is phenomenal. I came for the annual Kapalua Open held on Labor Day each year. This tournament had over 100 players in many divisions. The cost was only $45 to play at this beautiful facility. The price included lunch from the Pineapple Grill, which was the most gourmet player's lunch I have ever seen. While playing on the courts, you can look over and see the most astounding view of Napili Bay. On the other side of the courts you see a gorgeous, top-notch golf course. The courts are some of the best I've played on, and the experience is surreal. The staff was extremely helpful in finding local food places and things to do. I was fortunate enough to meet Jason (the facility director) and Nick (assistant facility director). Both gentlemen are great coaches who are extraordinarily friendly and passionate about the game. Their positive communication and feedback encouraged me to succeed on the court in a way I didn't know was possible. I highly recommend everyone to plan the Kapalua Resort into their travel itinerary this year. I cannot wait to return to this amazing resort!"—A.S., Adv., February 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "This is one of my favorite tennis resort. The pros Jason and Nick are stellar, along with Debbie in shop. I was fortunate enough to have one lesson with Jason which dramatically improved my tennis skills. The clinics are fun, challenging and catered to the people that attend. Great workout and lots of tennis with great tips. The pros really care about improving each individual attendees and it shows when they teach. I can't wait to return as this is one of the best clinics I have ever attended. Highly recommend."—M.L., Adv. Int., February 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "Very helpful and accommodating from the reservation/shop staff to the tennis professionals. Jason and Nick have different but complimentary teaching styles, and both bring a sense of fun and refreshing Aloha that make this a different experience from mainland resorts. Jason has lots of great gadgets that he uses to help with swing shape, core strength, movement and stability on the court. They have a very affordable tennis pass that allows for complimentary court usage, complimentary drop in doubles, and reduced rates for clinics and use of the ball machine. Max 6 people in any tennis clinic, so lots of opportunity to hit the ball and learn. Weather can be an issue on that part of the island, more wind and rain than in Lahaina. But, also mercifully cooler! I am a 3.5 player and felt that I was matched and put into clinics that best suited me. Private lessons have also really helped my game - lots of learning in a short period of time."—T.J., Int., February 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "Excellent instruction by Jason Purcell - he is very observant and gave me two more skills to add to my quiver."—D.C., Adv. Int., February 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "Spent the week at Napili Kei Beach Resort right across the street from the Kapalua Golf & Tennis Club. Participated in two clinics and Jason Purcell helped our little group get better in a couple of private sessions. He came up with great observations in our game and he is good guy on top of that. Thanks Jason!"—M.P., Int., July 2016
  • 5-Ball Rating "I am a 4.5 level tennis player and had the pleasure of working with Nick Provenza at the Kapalua Tennis Garden this spring on a trip to Maui. I booked several lessons with him in hopes of improving my backhand technique and forehand power. Nick was patient, professional, and able to take me through progressive steps to accomplish my goals. I particularly found the video analysis he did with me to be very helpful in this process. The facility and staff were wonderful."—B.H., Adv. Int., May 2016
  • 5-Ball Rating "Kapalua Tennis Garden is my absolute favorite place to take a tennis vacation. The coaching at Kapalua is superb; I learn excellent fundamentals and strategy each time I go that I can immediately incorporate into my game. The staff is exceptional, the tennis programs are excellent, the merchandise in the pro shop is wonderful, and the grounds are immaculate. I highly Kapalua Tennis Garden to anyone who wants an unforgettable tennis experience."—V.M., Int., April 2016
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Beautiful, tropical setting of the Kapalua Tennis Gardens. Avid tennis players come from all over the island to participate in the friendly, but competitive, clinics and round robins. Nick is a gem of an instructor with lots of enthusiasm. A must go to destination for any tennis player: beginner or advanced."—T.T., Int., April 2016
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Great experience all around. The head tennis pro Nick was fantastic. Great teacher, great player, and super nice. Nice pro shop and terrific hard courts."—C.S., Adv., March 2016
  • 4½-Ball Rating "The staff at Kapalua Tennis Garden were uniformly friendly and service oriented. The Pro Shop was well equipped. In particulary, the instructor was excellent and used a positive approach in her teaching methods with a strong background in the game. The setting -- a block from the ocean on Maui -- was a delight."—S.H., Adv. Int., March 2016
  • 5-Ball Rating "Our favorite vacation spot in the whole world is Ka'anapali. After playing tennis all week at the Kapalua Tennis Garden we love it even more now (if that is possible). Great staff/pros (Steve, Colleen, Nick) able to get all levels involved and engaged with a great atmosphere. Highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Maui."—R.B., Beg., March 2016
  • 5-Ball Rating "Great experience again for the 15th year. Unbeatable location. First class staff and creative programs. Also lots of other activities in the area and the finest of restaurants. It deserves to be in the top 10"—J.B., Int., March 2016
  • 5-Ball Rating "Amazing experience, as always! Great tennis, beautiful surroundings and the staff is great! Everyone at the Tennis Garden is pleasant, kind, informative and goes out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful experience. Steve and his staff are terrific! A special thank you to Denise! Mahalo,"—P.S., Adv. Int., February 2016
  • 4-Ball Rating "Fantastic facility with excellent, friendly staff and pros. Arrived in Hawaii with the explicit intent of trying to improve a specific stroke (serve), and with the help of Steve and Colleen, left the island with a solid sense of what needs to change. Just have to hit about 50k of them to get the muscle memory down. :-) The staff was also extremely helpful in arranging hitting partners throughout the week. Recommend this facility highly."—J.M., Adv., January 2016
  • 4½-Ball Rating "The pros were fun and friendly and accommodating. They were very helpful and taught using video and science to hit the ball biomechanically efficient."—J.B., Adv., January 2016
  • 5-Ball Rating "Once again our visit to Maui was outstanding. The tennis we play at the KTG fits us perfectly. Both the daily clinics and matches put together by Steve and his staff are fun and beneficial to our games. We will be back again in 2016!"—C.S., Adv., January 2016
  • 4-Ball Rating "We had the pleasure of taking some classes with Colleen. She was so spot on the little changes we needed to make to improve our game. She had great input and made us feel very welcome. The front desk is outstanding as well. Very friendly and willing to arrange some play time with other members."—H.P., Adv., January 2016
  • 5-Ball Rating "Hands down, the Kapalua Tennis Garden is the premier tennis facility in the Hawaiian Islands and its no surprise that so many people return to Kapalua to enjoy tennis. The daily tennis clinics are the best deal on the islands and really improved my game. The organized drop in doubles program is well run and all levels are expertly matched. The staff is exceptional and the Tennis Garden's setting, nestled near the emerald west Maui mountains and overlooking the Pacific beaches at Kapalua Bay is just unsurpassed. The only weakness is that the Kapalua Tennis Garden is no longer associated with the Ritz Carlton Tennis Courts (formerly the Kapalua Tennis Village)."—C.L., Int., October 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "Colleen and Steve are an amazing and welcoming one, two punch of not only tennis knowledge and teaching, but also in welcoming folks into their special facility. We first visited a year ago and on our return trip were shown the same Aloha spirit. We enjoyed clinics, lessons, drop ins...the entire gamut. There is not enough praise for these two and their staff!! We look forward to returning soon!"—M.W., Adv. Int., October 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating ""—R.B., Adv., September 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I did several stroke clinics, two of which ended up being essentially private lessons with Colleen Patton Campbell. Her teaching was superb. Her suggestions and corrections were the best I have ever received in playing tennis regularly over the last 25 years. I have been able to incorporate some of her suggestions with immediate and noticeable benefit to my game. I am still working on some of her other recommendations. She is energetic and passionate and an excellent instructor. I wish that I had had more time to work with her. I would definitely return for more clinics or lessons the next time we go to Maui."—R.F., Int., September 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Coach Colleen and Steve are excellent. Coach Colleen worked with me for a couple of private lessons and a few clinics and was extremely knowledgeable and educational. Both coaches really want to improve your game. With me they mainly concentrated on stroke skills (ground strokes and volleys) but gave me plenty of strategy tips as well. This is one of my favorite places to vacation and being able to improve my tennis makes it all the more enjoyable."—R.K., Beg., September 2015
  • 4-Ball Rating "Kapalua Tennis Garden is great. The staff is exceptional and the facility is very nice (although one of the courts I played on needs to be resurfaced but I'm sure they will address it). I was most impressed with their match making service. They set me up with a terrific player and we had a really good time."—B.G., Adv. Int., August 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "This tennis resort is so much fun, efficient, and knowledgeable. My lesson with Colleen was so good. I first got scared because I thought it was too much for me . After just a few minutes of instruction, I was eager to learn. By an hour, I have a full grasp of what she wanted me to do. I could not practice this on my own. The staff at this facility are just a pleasure to be around."—A.H., Int., August 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "The pros at Kapalua, Colleen and Steve, are really knowledgeable. They make you feel like improving your game is their highest priority. They sincerely want to help you improve. They spend a lot of time analyzing your stroke and serve. Not only is the coaching excellent, it's affordable too. The drills and clinics were some of the most helpful I've ever had. I also played in the drop in doubles. All the other players are really nice. A great place to play tennis!"—A.E., Adv. Int., August 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I have literally planned my vacations around being able to play tennis here. The staff is terrific."—R.A., Adv. Int., June 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "This tennis program has improved 1000% over the past year. The pros are great the clinics are varied and many and overall it is a terrific place to play tennis. They are very accommodating in setting up matches for you and also have drop in doubles throughout the week. Colleen is a terrific pro. She can teach to different levels at the same time and has a way of saying things in different ways so everyone understands. It's always great to really learn something new when you have played for a long time."—G.M., Adv., June 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Good teachers, Friendly staff and active programs"—G.H., Int., June 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I had an opportunity to take tennis lesson and drills from Steve and Colleen Campbell. They are exceptional tennis professionals!!! I was very impressed and most importantly, I learned. Steve, Colleen and the staff at Kapalua are indeed, first class."—L.T., Adv., June 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "We had an exceptional experience at the Kapalua Tennis Garden. My husband and I did drills and/or had matches arranged daily. The drills were fantastic in that the pros all teach with a similar style. So instead of hearing one technique from a pro, and then hearing a different methodology from another pro the next day, the messaging was all consistent-this made it much easier to incorporate the suggested changes into our strokes and our games. We have taken many tennis vacations in the past and do drills regularly. Steve, Colleen, and David were quite dedicated to the players, focusing on the participants and working hard on our individual games. The staff that handles the pro shop and scheduling is extremely helpful, friendly, and attentive. The Kapalua Tennis Garden will be a main factor in scheduling our next visit to Maui!"—M.F., Int., June 2015
  • 4-Ball Rating "They did a very good job of making matches for me, including when the weather at Kapalua was not good (raining). Anna in the pro shop is great!"—S.S., Adv., June 2015
  • 4-Ball Rating ""—B.R., Adv. Int., May 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "I spend the week in Maui as my home base but work trips to the other islands. For me this was a work trip no family etc. I always made a point to check at the Kapalua Tennis Gardens with Steve the tennis director there. He and his Wife Colleen have really made this club better than ever before. They set me up with one morning of doubles before my work day and another day with one of the members there playing singles. All the pros there introduced themselves and I just felt very well care for. Thank you, Steve"—G.B., Adv. Int., May 2015
  • 4-Ball Rating "Took a drill session with one of the tennis pros, Colleen Campbell, and was very impressed with her ability to observe my game and give me tips and suggestions on how to improve my strokes! She kept it fun and gave memory aids to help me to remember the new habits she suggested. Excellent Tennis Club all around with friendly and helpful staff, beautiful tennis grounds and environment in the resort town of Kapalua, West Maui!!!"—T.B., Adv., May 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating ""—M.T., Low Int., April 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "I took a 'Stroke of the Day' hour clinic that focused on serving with Colleen Patton. She was really great. Within 30 minutes I had a completely new serve - a much improved ball toss, grip and motion. She even offered a way to hold the ball while tossing to minimize the bad tosses. I'm so glad I took this class. Definitely well worth it. The staff are really friendly and the grounds are gorgeous. I highly recommend it."—S.H., Int., April 2015
  • 4-Ball Rating "I arranged for my HS son to have a place to practice for a week while on vacation. It turned into much more. David and Steve provided great instruction, and put in extra hours tweaking his technique. More importantly, Steve talked about how to approach tennis strategically. The many suggestions about future tennis opportunities in college, the making of a video, the life lessons that were incorporated, these were all the extras that Steve provided. And then Colleen was wonderful with my 9 year old. She explained things so well and I could see tremendous growth in just one week. He even got to jump in with the Junior Academy kids. Great atmosphere, awesome people to work with."—B.H., Low Int., April 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Had clinics with Steve and Coleen. They really made the expeince fun and a learnin one. Steve is both funny and able to offer very helpful suggestions to fine tune my game. The setting is really pretty and they have a nicely appointed pro shop. Everyone is friendly and helpfull both tennis and for local questions such as places to eat. Their clinics are upbeat and places to learn. I really enjoyed my tennis there!"—M.D., Adv. Int., April 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "The Kapalua Tennis Garden is the most picturesque tennis facility we've ever been to. It's definitely worth a visit, even for a casual tennis player. I've been playing tennis for most of my life, but my husband just started playing last year. Between clinics, lessons, and drop-in match play, there were plenty of playing opportunities for both of us. The tennis pros (Colleen, David, and Steve), gave excellent and encouraging instruction. David transformed my husband's serve in just two lessons. Both my husband and I were able to take valuable tips home with us to work on. The clinics (stroke of the day and drills/cardio tennis) are great value at only $26 per person. If tennis is the main purpose of your trip, make sure you budget for some rain."—E.P., Adv., March 2015
  • 4-Ball Rating ""—P.P., Int., March 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "I took 5 clinics with Tennis Pro Colleen Patton at the Kapalua Tennis Garden while on a 1 week vacation in Maui. This wasn't a deliberate 'tennis vacation' for me but the Kapalua Tennis Garden is so incredibly gorgeous and the pros there were so welcoming and fun that I kept coming back to make the morning clinics the start of each day. Colleen adjusts her instruction style quickly to meet the abilities and needs of each class so every clinic was unique and dynamic. Kapalua Tennis Garden should not be missed by any tennis lovers on a trip to Maui. It is also very affordable relative to the prices for pretty much everything else in Maui. Definitely a highlight!"—M.S., Int., February 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Beautiful facility with nice courts on multiple levels set into the hillside in Kapalua. Staff is very helpful, and graciously restrung my wife's racket in a day after she broke a string on our vacation. This led us to be invited to a tennis workout and group skills instruction, both led by Colleen, who was a positive and effective teacher."—N.M., Low Int., February 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "Strengths: Robust offerings for clinics, drop-ins, and match-making services. Great, friendly pros. Excellent instruction. Friendly, social, non-intimidating environment. Weaknesses: Difficult to navigate website which is well hid under Kapalua's golf program, needed to search hard to find tennis info. On-site restrooms need updating."—A.P., Low Int., February 2015
  • 4-Ball Rating "Excellent instruction in the Strokes of the Day clinics. Really helped my volleys and forehand. Steve made it fun at the same time. Great way to start the day in Hawaii."—M.L., Int., February 2015
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Instruction with Pro Colleen Patton EXCEPTIONAL!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to return! Thank you Colleen and Kapalua Tennis Garden Best Vacation Ever!"—S.B., Adv., February 2015
  • 4-Ball Rating "My husband and I are avid tennis players, 3.5 and 4.0 respectively. We adore falling out of bed and literally onto the tennis courts. The staff arranges good games, mixes up the play, provides stroke of the day every day and on Saturdays and some evenings, has drop in matches. The fees are very reasonable. I have played so much tennis here over the past month that I have to take a vacation from my vacation, muscles feel well used. We highly recommend the new staff, Colleen, Steve and David--outstanding!!!"—W.W., Adv., January 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "The Staff at Kapalua Tennis Garden helped me SO MUCH. I have been playing tennis for 10+ years and the couple lessons I took they really gave me some great advice and helped improve my game, backhand and serve tremendously. I liked the way they taught the lessons. They saw my weaknesses and corrected them right away, they knew what they were doing and were very nice. I had a great time there and will take the lessons that I learned and use them for years. Thank you all so much! I have been too many tennis resorts and locations but I felt you guys were the best! Thanks."—S.K., Adv. Int., January 2015
  • 5-Ball Rating "First I would like to start off by saying that I have enjoyed playing tennis at the Kapalua Tennis Garden for the last 14 years. Every year for my one months vacation I stay at the Napili Sunset which is a leisure 5 minute walk from the Kapalua Tennis Garden. The courts are centered on a extremely well manicured golf course with a restaurant right above them. The views are breathtaking. Recently Steve Campbell and Colleen Patton have joined the staff as Director and Professional. They have brought an uplifting and fresh attitude to the the adult drop ins and junior programs. Everyone is always made to feel welcome. They will gladly arrange for matches if you are traveling solo or would like to play some mixed doubles. Do yourself a favor and plan your next vacation to Maui and certainly visit the Kapalua Tennis Garden. Make sure and and tell Colleen that Misa from Las Vegas says Aloha. I promise you will have the time of your life."—M.J., Adv. Int., December 2014

She presented both forehand and backhand strokes in a well organized, simple, easy to remember way. We went home to our normal games with clear points to watch as we try to incorporate the lesson into our games. Both she and Director Steve were very friendly and accomodating and we felt like we were very welcome at the resort. This was my first lesson ever and I now want to take more in the future. Our love for tennis increased as a result of visiting Steve and Colleen's facility. Great job!"—M.M., Int., November 2014
  • 4-Ball Rating "Kapalua Tennis Garden - Lahaina, Maui - A great tennis destination for all your tennis needs! The new Director of Tennis, Steve Campbell, his Assistant Colleen, and the staff of the Garden do a great job arranging games daily, sometimes twice a day if desired. For a fee of $95 per couple, you become a "member for the month." This entitles you to unlimited tennis, matches arranged with locals and other visiting guests, discounts on lessons,, classes and on merchandise. On Saturdays, catch the Cardio Tennis Class followed by two hours of Drop-In Doubles. The only negative is the frequent rain showers, which quickly disapte, but you may have to find a squeege or two to continue play! Great tennis, great staff. We look forward to our visit next October!"—P.A., Adv. Int., October 2014

  • 5-Ball Rating "I have played these courts since 1985, and each time is amazing. The surrounding Kapalua Bay Golf Course and the VIew of the Ocean is unique! Being a former pro in the 70's, I realize that each moment on the court is special, and should never be taken for granted! The Kapalua Bay Villas are fantastic and the Montage Spa is world class! The pro at Kapalua, Colleen Patton, also is special! You will not be disappointed if you schedule a lesson or two while you visit! A very articulate , intelligent pro, with excellent intuition for the game! Perfect court surfaces, gentle ocean breeze, and sun shines till sunset!
    A fantastic restaurant 100 feet away from the court is ready to offer a meal or a tropical beverage to cap the experience at Kapalua! The only downside is you have to leave at some point, which is very depressing. Cant wait to return! No wonder Bjorn Borg enjoyed playing these courts! They are simply the finest, with the finest staff , in Hawaii! Aloha!"

Great tennis instructions from club pro Jeff then applies the instructions in actual drill practices - lots of fun.

The tennis courts are in great conditions and local members and guest are very friendly. Must go and visit Kapalua Tennis Garden to experience it. My wife and I had a terrific time. Weaknesses are it may rain time to time during your clinic but the rain stops and courts drys down quickly. Also, must learn to deal with trade winds if you are not used to playing when windy.

  • 5-Ball Rating "I just had a great week in northern Maui, and the highlight of it all was the Kapalua Tennis Garden. I checked in at the pro-shop the day I arrived, asking if I could get some games there during my stay in Napili. I was welcomed right in and invited to attend the Saturday morning doubles drop-in the next day. This activity was super-well coordinated by Jeff and I was able to play some really fun sets with people from all over North America. Instantly, I had a bunch of playing partners for the rest of my stay. Throughout the week, Ana and Leanne arranged games for me every morning. All I had to do was show up. I had the opportunity to use the ball machine whenever I wanted as well.
    The grounds are beautiful and the courts are in fantastic shape. The other highlight is the price. For $50, I was able to become a member for a month. This entitled me to attend drop-in sessions 3 x/week, to use the ball machine and to have matches organized for me any and every day that I wanted. It also gave me a discount on clinics and on merchandise. I only stayed for a week but played 7 times and got more than my money's worth out of my 1-month membership. Next year, I'm going to stay 2 or 3 weeks! Thanks so much to all the the staff at Kapalua Tennis Garden :)"

Originally, we went just to vacation in Maui but after our first experience at Kapalua tennis gar dens, we have returned annually just to play tennis at the Kapalua. We take advantage of all their offerings starting with clinics in the mornings, doubles games or drop-in doubles games in the afternoons. We also take lessons from the pros. This is the 3 rd year that we saw Jeff Smith, the head pro.
    Jeff has done a marvelous job providing partners as well as teaching at the resort. The club is well run and very nice to play on. As I stated earlier, I return each year just for the Kapalua tennis. I've considered going elsewhere in Hawaii but I'd miss the club too much.

The Tennis Garden facility has great hard courts and the teaching and club staff are superb. I am a 5.0+ player and the head pro, Jeff Smith is an excellent instructor and hitting partner.
    We stayed here last year and the weather this year was even more beautiful. It is a stunning place to play tennis when it is sunny and little wind.
    There are a variety of villas to rent. This year we rented a one bedroom in close proximity to the ocean. It was a fantastic experience watching the Pacific Humpback whales within sight of our vantage point.

  • 4½-Ball Rating "We saw the Kapalua Tennis Garden from the window of a restaurant on the property, and decided to give it a try. I had not played tennis in more than 20 years, and my wife has never played. We took three private lessons (over several days), and we were both delighted. Our instructor - Quinn - was not only a skilled player and a very nice fellow, but he was a terrific teacher. We both felt comfortable in the first 3 minutes. While we only had time for three lessons, we learned a ton and, based on our great experience, are going to upgrade our health club membership back home to include tennis. My wife, who had never held a racket as of five days ago, finished her third lesson in a 20-stroke rally with Quinn. She was ecstatic, and she deserved to be. While we were there, we watched Jeff - the lead professional - coach a player who was already extremely good. He was also very happy with his lesson. Net: it's extremely scenic and a great place for players of all levels - from absolute beginners (my wife), to players like me who have not played in 20+ years, to people who are very skilled.

From my nationally ranked son who wanted to hit with a strong professional, my husband and younger 12 year old who enjoyed using the ball machine, to myself who enjoys playing competitive doubles, we were all satified with our tennis experience at this club...and that's not easy to do ! We all played virtually every day: there are clinics for juniors; drop in doubles at a competitive level where lots of people from the island, visitors and residents alike, actually drop in; daily stroke clinics or you can arrange private lessons with either of the very personable and outstanding tennis pros. I can't imagine and certainly haven't found any better location for a tennis club, the setting was superb. I highly recommend going to Maui, staying at a Kapalua property and playing tennis at this club. You may never want to go anywhere else !"—S.B., Adv., March 2012

When I called for a court and hitting partners, I was given several options. I ended up taking 2 lessons with the director Jeff Smith which were really great. As a 5.0 player I usually just want to hit, but he was able to give me a few simple tips to fine-tune my shots. When I broke my strings on my only racket, they got it back to me <24 hr turn around time. Their newly surfaced courts are terrific and I hear they plan to do the bottom courts soon. Would definitely love to come back to Kapalua and hit with Jeff again!"—J.S., Adv., February 2012
  • 5-Ball Rating "The Kapalua Tennis Garden has numerous regular playing activities such as shot clinics and drop in doubles. These are all outstanding. The clinics are informative and well run by tennis professionals who helped me tremendously with refining my strokes. They were fun and moved quickly. The drop in doubles program provided a great entry to the Maui tennis community. By mixing resort guests, part time and full time residents in round robin play I was able to meet and arrange games with people I had already met and found compatible in both level and personality. I took a lesson for a problematic serve that I had been fighting for years. Jeff Smith the Tennis Director got me adjusted to take advantage of my abilities. Just as importantly, he taught in a clear way with simple principles. As a result my serve's consistency improved dramatically almost immediately. His teaching approach also gave me a vehicle to self correct when I missed a serve. I could not recommend Kapalua or its friendly personnel any higher."—T.R., Adv., February 2012

Jeff's ability to explain tennis techniques and concepts in a clear, concise manner provides his students with all of the essential building blocks to excel at the game. In addition, Jeff's constant reinforcement of proper techniques during his lessons forces the students he instructs to practice the correct way to hold the racquet, balance their feet and rest their dominant arm throughout a match, all of which will ultimately reduce the risk of injury.

It was amazing to observe the way Jeff worked with that young man.
