May 5, 2016

New Braunfels, TX – Cliff Drysdale Tennis is pleased to announce a very strong showing for its resort partners in the Tennis Resorts Online’s Annual Top 100 List, released May 1, 2016.

The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami made a significant jump in the rankings, going from No. 18 in 2015 to No. 7 Overall Tennis Resort in the world in 2016. Omni Amelia Island Plantation was ranked No. 1 Camp in the US, No. 10 Overall Tennis Resort in the world, and multiple top category rankings for Best Staff, Best Tennis Instruction and Programming, and Best Overall Children’s Programs. Additional Drysdale-resort partners Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa, Hawks Cay Resort, and Stratton Mountain Resort also ranked on the coveted Top 100 list with respective Silver and Bronze awards.

“Tennis Resorts Online has released its annual rankings every year since 2003,” states Roger Cox, Editor of Tennis Resorts Online. “To guarantee an authoritative list, the results are compiled from evaluations submitted by tennis vacationers themselves. Avid players—they average more than 100 days per year on court—and frequent travelers, these elite reviewers not only have first-hand experience of the resorts and camps they rate, but also possess a highly refined sense of what makes a tennis resort or camp great. It is their collective wisdom and judgment that underpin these Top 100 rankings and thus assure their credibility.”

“We are thrilled for our resort partners ranked in the top 100 of tennis destinations in the world,” states Scott Colebourne, Vice President of Tennis Resort Operations for Cliff Drysdale Tennis. “It’s especially exciting to see The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami continuing their momentum and rise towards the top of the rankings with their highest ever score received this year. It is a strong testament to the resort and tennis staff and their great efforts in recent years to ensure every guest has a memorable experience every day of their stay.”
