Palm Island Resort named a top tennis venue

Palm Island Resort has been named one of the world’s top 75 tennis resorts for 2017 by Tennis Resorts Online (www.tennisresortsonline.com). The annual rankings are voted on by avid tennis vacationers who rate their tennis experiences based on 20 different aspects of a tennis holiday.

“In generating the rankings, we relied most heavily on their opinions of the tennis instruction, teaching staff, and services like game matching,” said Tennis Resorts Online Editor Roger Cox. “Nevertheless, because this is a vacation, we also factored in such creature comforts as lodging, cuisine and other recreation, as well as their sense of how much value they received for their vacation dollar. Then we compile those evaluations into a numerical ranking using a formula that gave added weight to the tennis elements.”

Palm Island Resort caters to tennis players of all ages and skill levels with six private tennis courts.

As an island accessible only by car ferry, Palm Island Resort offers tennis players a high level of attention from resident tennis professional Art Santos, a veteran tennis professional with Peter Burwash International for 37 years and a certified USPTA Elite Professional. Mr. Santos is available to plan tennis tournaments and provide lessons upon request.
