10 Top Tennis Resorts and Camps

Ready to take your tennis game to the next level? Tennis has been an internationally beloved sport for well over a century. And for good reason: it delivers countless physical, mental and social benefits.

Whether you are playing competitively or recreationally with friends and family, tennis is an excellent form of exercise that can boost your level of fitness and reaction time, both on and off the court. Specifically, tennis can improve your cardiovascular health by increasing your aerobic capacities. Exercise like tennis can also support mental health in powerful physiological ways by releasing endorphins and reducing feelings of stress, anxiety and depression.1

A tennis-oriented vacation at state-of-the-art facilities that also feature amenities like pools and spas can help you hone your skills, increase your mental stamina and become more confident on the court and in life. Many of these properties have also embraced pickleball, a fast-paced, easy-to-learn sport that mixes elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong.
