Tennis player and expert reviewer Roger Cox founded TennisResortsOnline.com to help players choose the best resorts for their needs.

We would like to thank critic Roger Cox and his comprehensive website, TennisResortsOnline for providing us with his readers’ selection of the Top 100 Tennis Resorts & Camps in the world for 2019. This year, the Kiawah Island Golf Resort, South Carolina was selected as best overall resort for instruction and facilities.

How to rank a Tennis Resort and Methodology

“These rankings represent the collective wisdom of thousands of tennis players,” Mr. Cox explains. “They are asked to evaluate each resort or camp in 20 different categories, including all aspects of the tennis experience—from game matching and teaching staff to tournaments and round robins—and such diverse characteristics as the quality of the lodging, restaurants, children’s programs, and value for dollar. Those reviews and then tabulated to compile a numerical ranking.”

TRO’s detailed evaluations enabled them to highlight resorts with the top Overall Children’s Programs (both for teaching tennis and for taking care of kids) and the Best Junior Programs (for teaching tennis to serious young players.)

Each of these category winners is linked to a detailed review of its property and programs, to better help families choose the right facility for their needs, whether they are traveling with toddlers, teens, grands or all of the above.
