Tennis Resorts Online Travel Website Names Top 100 Resorts and Camps
Tennis Resorts Online has come out with its annual top tennis resorts and camps, based on evaluations submitted by vacationers. “The best sources of information about a tennis resort or camp experience are the players who go there on vacation,” says Roger Cox, founder and editor of Tennis Resorts Online (www.tennisresortsonline.com). “But these aren’t ordinary players. They spend on average 100 days a year on court, which means that they have high expectations of the staff and programs.”
The No. 1 tennis resort on the list is once again Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina, which is a credit to former touring pro Roy Barth, who has directed the tennis operation since the resort opened in 1976. Rounding out the top 5 resorts are The Boulders Resort & Golden Door Spa in Arizona, Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt in Austria, Rancho Valencia Resort in California, and Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Florida.
For tennis camps, once again New England Tennis Holidays took top honors, the sixth year in a row the New Hampshire camp has been No. 1. The rest of the top 5 camps are Vic Braden Tennis College at Green Valley Resort in Utah, Roy Emerson Tennis Weeks at the Palace Hotel in Switzerland, PBI Tennis Camp at the Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt in Austria, and Saddlebrook Tennis in Florida.
