Tennis player and expert reviewer Roger Cox founded 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. 2019 is the most recent year the survey was done because of the COVID-19 pandemic. That year, as in others past, 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 are then tabulated to compile a numerical ranking,” Cox adds.

Choosing the Best Tennis Program for Your Family

TRO’s detailed evaluations enabled the site 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.) While Cox has not tried every youth program, he encourages site visitors and their children to contribute first-person reviews to keep the site current.

Read on, and you’ll see that 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.

Then, it’s game on, whether you are traveling with toddlers, teens, grands or all of the above.
