Best hotels with tennis courts around the world

Simon Calder’s Travel

Whether you’re inspired by Wimbledon or just want to keep your hobby up on holiday, finding a hotel with tennis courts is ideal opportunity to perfect those racquet skills.

Thankfully, more and more hotels are realising that they need to up their game, literally, when it comes to the provision of courts to cater for active travellers. Far from offering a couple of dusty patches of grass with nets at the back of a resort, plenty of places are building courts in beautiful surroundings. And you can choose from grass, clay or sprung all-weather artifical surfaces that offer a smooth base for the perfect bounce.

Whether you crave a luxurious five-star experience with manicured courts and a pro on hand, or a charming boutique hotel with a hidden gem of a court tucked amidst olive groves or on the cliff top, here are the best hotels with tennis courts around the world.

Surrounded by Sedona’s iconic red rocks, Enchantment Resort has six impeccably maintained courts at 4,600ft above sea level. These high altitude conditions force the body to work harder, which can lead to impressive improvements in fitness. Added to that, there are plenty of rocky trails to walk to further improve cardiovascular fitness and a pitch’n’putt in case you’re still feeling competitive after the tennis. The resort caters to all levels of player, with racquets available to hire and instruction for those seeking to up their game.

Venture outside the resort and you’ll find Sedona to be a hub for all things health and wellbeing. It has a reputation for being a spiriutual retreat with lots of places to meditate, enjoy yoga and even consult psychics.
