Why We Love the Boca Raton Resort & Club

My wife and I are tennis nuts, so when we came to choose our vacation destination this year the answer popped out almost immediately: the Boca Raton Resort & Club, Florida.

We’ve visited the Boca Raton Resort a couple or three times over the last ten years, and of any resort we’ve ever visited this is the one that keeps drawing us back. We’re always excited to arrive and sad to leave, and when you find a place that hits all the buttons like that you want to hold onto it year after year.

So what is it about the Boca Raton Resort that we love? Well, above all else it’s the tennis. The 18 clay courts make up one of the best tennis clubs in the country, and under the direction of tennis director Erik Silver it’s the best place I’ve ever visited for helping you improve your game.

Erik has been at the club since he was a kid, and he takes his job extremely seriously. Throughout the week there are any number of clinics, technical lessons and competitive play to help players of any skill level improve. I’m far from the best, but each week I spend in Boca Raton ups my game more than a year of practice elsewhere. The tennis pros are just the best.

It’s not just about the tennis, though. The resort also has a half mile of beautiful private beach, great accommodations, a world class golf course with a devilish number of water hazards, lots of pools and an enormous spa and fitness center. We’re never short of things to do when we visit.

At the end of the day, the Boca Raton Resort has something for everyone. It’s fun, relaxing, challenging and beautiful, and to top it off the folks working the resort are the nicest you’ll ever meet. I know we’ll keep going back there for years, and I’m sure you’ll feel the same after your first visit.

A Great Conference at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa

I’ve spent the last ten years traveling around the US to attend countless dry, dull conferences, and by this point every resort looks the same as the last. I spend a day listening to the keynote speaker go on and on about market share and new opportunities, struggling to stay awake each moment, before grabbing a few drinks at the bar and retiring to bed.

The JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, California was different, and if I ever get to meet the guy who chose the location I’ll happily cover his bar tab. From the moment I arrived I knew this resort was a little special. The enormous lobby is actually connected to the lake outside, and you can hop on a boat inside the lobby for a ride around the lake. I’ve never seen anything like it before, and it makes a great first impression.

The second impression is important, too, and the JW Marriott doesn’t disappoint once you leave the lobby. My room (a regular resort room, not one of the suites) was clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated, but it was the view that really blew me away. A floor to ceiling sliding window led out onto the balcony for a stunning view of the mountains. After a long day of work I can’t imagine a better view to greet you.

More than anything else, though, I was impressed by the tennis facilities. I don’t often get the chance to enjoy myself on these work jaunts, but after reading that the Marriott had been voted one of the best tennis resorts in the US I was determined to find an afternoon to spend out on the courts.

I wasn’t disappointed. The Marriott has 20 courts in all: 15 hard surface, 3 clay and 2 grass. I spent a blissful afternoon out on one of the clay courts, working on my serve and my tan, and I caught the ‘afternoon clinic’, an hour long training session with one of the tennis pros based at the resort. Great instruction, fantastic courts and a beautiful view. What more could I ask for?

The JW Marriott at Desert Springs is just a few hours drive from my home, so I’m sure I’ll be heading back for a few days vacation in the summer.

Discovering Ponte Vedra

I first heard about the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, Florida when a friend of mine spent a week there last summer. He came back raving about the golf, but because he’s a bit of a golf nut I took his praise for the resort with a pinch of salt.

When I was wondering where to take my wife in the fall, though, I remembered the name of the resort and checked it out online. Almost instantly I knew this was the place I was looking for. Half a mile of beachfront? Check. Ocean views and rooms just a couple of yards from the sand? Check. World class tennis facilities? Double check.

My wife and I both love the beach, but what we really adore is tennis. We just can’t get enough of it, and the perfect vacation for us would be spent almost entirely on the courts with brief breaks to swim in the ocean. Ponte Vedra offers all of that.

I’ve traveled for decades, but I’ve never woken to a better view than the one of the Atlantic through the window of our oceanfront suite. The wide beach started just a couple of steps from our door, so each morning began with a bracing dip in the surf before we headed off to the courts.

The 15 Har-Tru courts of Ponte Vedra were the main attraction for us. We spent all week playing from dawn to dusk, breaking for a couple of hours to take a dip in the pool across the street when the heat got a little too much.

All in all Ponte Vedra offered the best of all worlds. The tennis courts were fantastic, the pools beautifully cool, the suites perfect and the beaches white, large and empty. This was our first trip to the resort, but you can be sure it won’t be our last.

Relaxing at the Punta Mita Resort, Mexico

It’s been many years since I last visited Mexico, and my first trip was to a decidedly rough area. I stayed in a fan-cooled room for $5 a night and spent roughly 90% of my time dead drunk. Of course I was also 22 years old, and in the years since my tastes have changed and my tolerance for all night drinking sessions has been severely reduced. For this second trip, then, I chose a rather more sedate and upmarket destination: the Punta Mita resort, Nayarit, Mexico.

My wife and I stayed in a beautiful beachfront Casita room at the Four Seasons resort. Walk out the door, shimmy past the hammock and we’d find ourselves standing on a beautiful (and relatively empty) white sand beach. It was just perfect from the marble bathrooms to the sparkling ocean.

The real attraction of the Punta Mita resort, though, is the tennis club. The club is run by Four Seasons, but guests at one or two other hotels in Punta Mita can access the facilities too. The ten courts were always popular during our stay, but we never had trouble getting a game so long as we called ahead before leaving our room.

The upside of the club’s popularity was the fact that it was easy to find partners for a quick game. My wife is significantly better than me, so it was nice to be able to find someone a little closer to my skill level so I didn’t have to spend all week getting embarrassed on the courts.

If you’re looking for a great tennis resort it’d be hard to find better than Punta Mita. If golf is your game you can play one of the two Jack Nicklaus-designed courses in the resort. If you’re looking for a great beach, the sand outside our room was just perfect. All in all, the Punta Mita resort offers something for everyone. We’ll definitely be back.

Discovering the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort

My wife and I spend most of our vacations at tennis resorts around the US, and while we love to indulge in our favorite hobby for an entire week we’re usually left a little disappointed by the high court fees. We don’t mind paying a little for the use of world class courts and clinics with tennis pros, but it often feels as if tourists are squeezed for a little more than is strictly necessary. Heck, last year we visited a resort that charged $40 per hour in court fees! That’s not so bad if you only want to play once, but over the course of a week you’re looking at quite a bill.

Well, enough complaining. This summer we found the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, Florida, and breathed a sigh of relief when we saw the court fees were only $12 per hour – plus a free hour of play each day for guests of the resort – and just $6 per hour for night play.

When we first saw the prices we found it hard to believe that the Sandestin resort was voted one of the best tennis resorts in the country, but by the look of the place it’s a well deserved award. The 15 courts (12 clay and 3 hard) are just fantastic. We never stuggled to find a free court, and there were plenty of activities going on throughout the days that we could join in with.

What really stood out was the pro shop. It’s huge! I hear it’s one of the largest in the region, and it’s a great place to have a play around with racquets (or do what I did and blow your drinks budget on a new one).

It’s not just about tennis, though. The Sandestin resort has golf, pools, a great spa, fantastic restaurants and luxurious accommodations, too. If you’re not that into tennis you can still have a fantastic time!

Tennis On Our Doorstep at The Boulders

Coming from Phoenix I’ve spent the last ten years traveling all across the US in seach of the perfect tennis resort. From Hawaii to California to the US Virgin Islands, I’ve spent every day of vacation time hitting the courts, and after so many years I was surprised to find that one of the best resorts in the country is right here on my doorstep.

The Boulders, a Waldorf Astoria resort, Arizona, is just 20 miles from my Phoenix home up in the Sonaran Desert. For many years The Boulders has been known primarily as a golf resort (the North Course is one of the top 75 resort courses in the US), but recently the resort has gained a growing reputation as a world class tennis destination.

The Boulders has 8 courts in all, 5 hard and 3 clay, all humming along under the watchful eye of Dale Light, the director of the tennis program. My wife and I had the chance to meet Dale on our trip, and he spent a little time talking about the improvements made to the tennis facilities in recent years. Most of it passed me by as I was so eager to get out onto the courts, but it sounds as if the last few years of development at the resort included some enormous improvements.

My favorite thing about The Boulders was by far the surroundings. The tennis courts were around a quarter of a mile from our room, so each morning we took a stroll through the cacti, enjoying the clean desert air before settling down for some serious play (don’t worry, there’s a shuttle bus if you’d rather not walk).

We came home from our trip about a month ago now, and since then I’ve spent every day wondering whether I should become a permanent member of the tennis club. I’d love to go back every weekend, and if my wife allows it I’ll get to enjoy that fantastic resort whenever I want!

Golf and Tennis at The Broadmoor, Colorado

My wife and I are both avid tennis fans, so when we heard about The Broadmoor, Colorado – just an hour from our home – we had to check it out over a long weekend to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary.

First, it goes without saying that this is a spectacular resort. The Broadmoor has won the AAA Five Diamond award consecutively more than any other resort in the US, so we just knew we could expect something special before we arrived. Just how special, though, we had no idea.

The Broadmoor is, without a doubt, the most luxurious resort we’ve ever visited. We like to spoil ourselves with the occasional extravagant vacation but we’ve never been anywhere like this. We stayed in the beautifully decorated (and decadent) Cheyenne Lake Suite, a fantastic room with a perfect private patio and possibly the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept on. The suite cost a little more than we’d usually spend, but it was well worth every cent.

Where The Broadmoor really blew us away, though, was in the tennis and golf facilities. The resort has been voted among the top ten tennis resorts in the country each year for the last 15 by Tennis Magazine. The Mountain golf course, originally designed by Arnold Palmer and redesigned by Jack Nicklaus, has to be among the most fun and challenging in the country. Everything about the golf course and tennis courts was perfect. The cushioned tennis courts were just fantastic, and I’ve never enjoyed a walk around 18 holes more than the Mountain course.

We spent almost every waking moment of our weekend golfing and playing tennis, and by check out time we were kicking ourselves that we hadn’t booked a full week. It’s been a month since we visited The Broadmoor, and we’ve already booked for a week in July – in a regular room this time. It’ll be a shame to give up the suite, but my wallet will thank me!

Relaxing at the Sea Pines Resort

As an avid tennis fan I love to vacation at resorts with great facilities and an excellent pedigree, so it was only natural to choose the Sea Pines Resort, South Carolina for a week long vacation this spring.

The Sea Pines Resort is one of the most famous and respected resorts in the US, and while most tennis resorts offer excellent courts, great pro shops and guidance from successful tennis pros, I can’t think of any other resort that offers quite as much as The Sea Pines.

First of all, the touring pro for the racquet club is two-time Grand Slam champion Stan Smith, a legend in the sport. Any club lucky enough to host a pro with both a Wimbledon and US Open title under his belt is sure to be great.

Since my first visit to Hilton Head in the mid-90s the club at Sea Pines has undergone an enormous renovation. 23 new clay courts have been built in recent years, all set in a bright, open clearing in beautiful surroundings.

On our most recent trip my wife and I stayed at The Inn at Harbour Town, built a few years back on the site of the old clubhouse. I could go on and on about the accommodations, but suffice to say that our room was luxurious with an old fashioned east coast charm, and we fell in love with the private terrace attached to the room.

Between daily trips to the court (including a great 3 hour tennis clinic that runs most of the week) evenings in fantastic restaurants and nights sitting out on the terrace with a glass of wine I’ve never had so much fun. It’s been a month since we visited Sea Pines, and we’re all set for a return this coming June. We just can’t wait.

I Love the TOPS’L Beach and Racquet Resort!

I’ve never been one to sit back and relax on vacation. I have far, far too much energy to lay back on a beach and watch the world go by, and I get a little antsy if there’s nothing to do. As such, my vacation to TOPS’L Beach & Racquet Court, Florida wasn’t your typical beach holiday. I went for the tennis, and the tennis alone.

TOPS’L has been voted one of the top ten tennis resorts in the US each year for over a decade now, so I knew the facilities were going to be great. The resort has 12 clay courts, 10 of them with lights for night play, and all the courts are open from 6AM to 9PM. The whole thing is overseen by Joe D’Aleo, a former collegiate singles player from my alma mater Georgia Tech, who makes sure there’s always a game to join or clinic to attend. I was visiting solo, so it was great to have Joe around to help hook me up with opponents.

On this vacation I actually branched out in my activities a little, and for the first time in many years I spent a day lazing around on the beach. I could see the sand from my window each morning, and while I can take it or leave it there was something very inviting about the long, white stretch of beach. If you’re into beaches I’m sure you’ll love it – any beach that can tempt me has to be great.

Finally, if you get the chance you shouldn’t miss the island themed parties the resort throws by the pool attached to my building. I stayed in The Tides, the newest resort building at TOPS’L, and on the weekend I had a blast by the pool with a few of my tennis partners.

My wife adores the beach, so I’m sure I’ll be back this summer with the family in tow. It’s great to finally have a resort nearby that offers such excellent tennis facilities while also offering something for my wife and kids. That way I can escape to the courts without complaint!

A Tennis Resort With a Difference

My wife and I regularly visit tennis resorts all across the US, and if there’s one thing the best of them have in common it’s that they all tend to be down by the beach or stuck in the middle of the desert. After a decade of vacationing on the courts of Florida, Arizona, Nevada and California I feel like every resort looks pretty much the same.

Well, that’s until I arrived at the Wintergreen Resort, Virginia. In a beautiful forest setting 3,000 feet high in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Wintergreen Resort is like no other tennis resort we’ve ever viisited.

Tennis resorts usually offer the same old few activities: tennis, of course, as well as golf, a couple of pools, a fitness center and a spa. Wintergreen, though, offers all of those activities as well as skiing, snowboarding, ice skating and even mountain tubing (try it, it’s fantastic). If you’re looking for a tennis vacation with a difference you should definitely visit.

Of course, this does come with a few tradeoffs. The 19 outdoor clay courts have to close for the winter (I’m sure you wouldn’t want to play in the snow), so if you want to combine your tennis with winter sports you’ll be limited to the 3 Deco-Turf indoor courts that are open year round.

My wife and I visited this January, and while we would have liked to have been able to play outdoors we had no problem getting time on the courts. Most visitors in the winter are busy on the slopes, so we found ourselves with the tennis facilities to ourselves much of the time.

While we didn’t get to use the outdoor courts we took a look around the place and I’m sure they’d be just fantastic in the summer. The courts are set in thick pine forest, and I’m told in the summer there’s a refreshing mountain breeze to cool down the players.

Well, I guess we won’t know for sure until August. As soon as we got home we booked ourselves another week, so soon enough we’ll be back on the mountain!

Tennis Tips From My Tennis Bag.

From an alternative perspective tennis isn't a game of ‘dinking’ the ball forwards and backwards over the net. Tennis isn't a case of hard-hitting or beast strength. While precision in tennis is critical you want to add do it the understanding that lends you speed. This way you're able not only to put the ball where it'll be most awkward for your adversary to reach it, but to make it travel so that he will be able to struggle to get into position quick enough to return it. If you are a noob player, and when you are conversant with the fundamentals regarding how to learn tennis, the following step is generally to begin playing the game. It can be tricky when you are out there in court and as a player you want all of the help it is possible to get.

With it, you can hit the ball right at the centre of the head. Doing hence you'll have more control on your swing and your hits will have such power. There aren't any coaches or colleagues to blame when things aren't going well. Working Ethos Unless you've got a high natural talent level, you should work awfully tough on your game to get better and beat off the competition at the university level.

Grades If you are unable to stay qualified to play, your talent and ability level don’t matter.

Your coaching exercise programs & programme need to mirror what occurs on the court so stuff like too much jogging for your endurance coaching will actually make you slower on the court – no good! Fit the wants of the player The programme desires to fit the player it is specially designed for in many ways. Andy Murrays fitness levels are potentially much way higher than yours, so it might be very unlikely to coach at those strengths even though you wished to. Give it some thought, you would not wish to train yourself the same way Andy Murray trains ( well you almost certainly would like to ! ) – nonetheless it just would not work. This sort of shot is a good method against taller players who do not like to bend over for a low ball. This type of shot can neutralise a tough hitter who likes to remain behind the baseline. The drop shot is a great method for changing the pace and the geometry of a tennis match. A drop shot is a powerful tool for a player who is losing power and speed from his or game and who needs to develop a well-balanced and nicely rounded attack.
