I’ve been going to Newk's every year since about 2010. Over the course of a week, from Sunday evening through Friday lunch, you will be on the courts working on your game. You get about 30hrs of tennis instruction during the week either on the hard courts or the green clay

We stayed in a very nice 2 bedroom condo. We walked out our back door to the courts, and just a short walk to dining and apres. The tennis was OUTSTANDING. This is not namby-pamby 1 hr per day and then massages...this is 3 hours morning and three hours afternoon of tennis.

Group of 12 from Ohio had a great time sharpening our tennis skills and enjoying the Ranch. Meeting Mr. Newcombe was a bonus - nice guy. Pro’s were super friendly and gave great instruction. Food was very good. Loved the homemade tomato basil soup! The coffee in the morning

I'm way behind schedule posting this review. I attended the 5-day adult camp in March, and brought along two 16-y-o boys who attended the junior camp during their spring break. In the late 70's, I learned about Newcombe's Tennis Ranch, and always wanted to come here. After not

Thank you for your review on the Ranch.It was great to have you here. I remember both of your sons from Wisconsin very well and they were both very good players and a pleasure to work with, I am sorry that you feel like they did not get any individualized instruction. I spent time with each of them working on their kick serves and we gave chalk talk/strategy sessions every day to begin the clinic. Obviously, we need to do better in this regard but we do pride ourselves on giving incisive instruction, match play critiques and individualized sessions. Thank you again for your great review and we look forward to welcoming you back soon and please give my best to your sons. Hope their tennis is "rock solid." Sincerely, Phil, Tennis Director

My 12 year old son and 10 year old daughter have spent two weeks at Newks each of the last two summers. Even though they were beginners, the staff made them feel comfortable and placed them in groups with similar skills. They both advanced in their skill levels and had a great

We were in the condo. It was quite spacious. Had 2 bedrooms each with 2 beds and a loft with 2 more beds. The kitchen was a full kitchen and also had a washer and dryer It could use an update for sure, but it was clean

"Condos have kitchens/washer/dryer-since meals included not as important-you don't spend a lot of time in your room except to sleep/shower"
"They have rooms with kitchens and laundry, it's worth getting one of those rooms."
"The Condos are great--only a tiny bit more expensive than the rooms and have a living room and kitchenette."
"This is a tennis camp -- get a room close to the courts. A spectacular view is one of several courts! LOL"
"Try and get a room closer to the dining room; makes for a shorter walk."
