I had always wanted to visit this tennis camp/ranch since hearing about it years ago. I was not disappointed when I finally did. The level of instruction and the passion of the instructors was high. It seem that with almost every ball they hit you the coaches provided some tip or advice. I also liked how the instructors mingled with... More

If your idea of a great week is 5+ hours of tennis a day with expert instruction, great fun, great food and socializing with other folks who think this is great way to spend the day, Newk's is for you. It's an incredible all inclusive value! The rooms are great, the food is great (not fine dining though - go... More

Stayed at the tennis ranch for the first time Saturday through Wednesday Mar 22-26. Easy drive from Austin airport and even closer to San Antonio. Had a condo with a loft which was plenty for the 3 of us. This is a very laid back rustic resort that knows tennis. We were welcomed from the start and the head pro... More

We had a fantastic time last week at the tennis ranch. My husband and I, and our 3 daughters, played lots of tennis, improved our game and enjoyed socializing with fellow travelers. The staff is very welcoming and gracious, and extremely knowledgeable about the game of tennis. The accommodations are somewhat spartan but comfortable. My daughter is returning by herself... More

The John Newcombe Tennis Rance is an absolutely beautiful property set in a nitch area. The home style cooking was probably the best part of the experience. Being from "up north" the food here was amazing, the staff was so friendly and helpful, and just a great time!

We visited the ranch dec 15-20 and it was everything we hoped for and more! First off there is nothing more pure then waking up knowing all I'll be doing is hitting for six hours. Honestly it doesn't get better than that. The ranch delivers this experience in full, filling every moment with lessons and games to keep challenging you.... More

Recently stayed here with our family of 5 for 3 nights. Place has a somewhat worn "summer camp" feel, but is obviously meant for tennis players wanting to improve their game, both young and old.
