Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (PRWEB) October 16, 2006
The October 2006 issue of Tennis Magazine, now on newsstands, names the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club the top tennis resort in the country. The AAA Five-Diamond resort bests 49 other contenders for the number one seat, following a top 10 position on the list for the last 12 years. The magazine cited Ponte Vedra Inn & Club’s new premier tennis facilities, active tennis program with top pros, a friendly environment and sumptuous accommodations as keys to its success.
Earlier this year, the resort opened a new 3,600-square-foot tennis clubhouse and 15 redesigned Har Tru surface tennis courts with a subterranean irrigation system. The new clubhouse features a covered second floor observation deck with panoramic views of all the courts and the ocean. The Racquet Club’s 15 Har Tru surface courts were redesigned to allow for the addition of two spacious sidewalk gazebos with seating for courtside viewing. To keep the courts in top condition with minimal down time, a new state-of-the-art subterranean irrigation system eliminates the need for courts to be out-of-play for water maintenance.
Led by Director of Tennis Michael Leach, the resort’s tennis program offers a range of instruction for all skill levels, year-round clinics and special packages. USPTA and USPTR professionals provide instruction and private teaching courts are available. Cradled between green fairways and the blue Atlantic, Ponte Vedra Inn & Club’s Racquet Club has evolved from a single clay court more than 70 years ago to the top tennis resort in the nation today. According to Tennis magazine, the criteria used in judging includes outstanding tennis programs and instruction, first-rate accommodations, diverse and quality dining and picture-perfect settings. Tennis magazine is the leading racquet sports periodical with a circulation of nearly 1 million paid subscribers.
