    My wife and I are looking for a place to check out for tennis over Thanksgiving. Looked at TennisResortsOnline. Would appreciate input
    to narrow things down.

    I am a 4.0, wife is 3.5 for tennis level, not looks....:)

    We live in St. Louis.

    Thanks,

    Tim

    I just returned from my 3rd week-long stay at the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch in as many years. If you want LOTS of great tennis instruction, their weeklong program is great. The food is very good, and I expect that the weather will be fine there around Thanksgiving time. (I was there the first week of December in 2003, and played in shorts and tee-shirt every day except 1.) However, if you guys are looking for a "fancy resort" type of place, the accomodations might not be what you're looking for. They're clean and kinda "average", but certainly not plush.

    I've also been to a couple of places on Hilton Head Island that were very nice. The accomodations were better than Newk's, and the tennis was not nearly as intense. Just depends on what you and the Mrs are looking for. It might be kinda cold there around Thanksgiving, I'm not sure. Florida also, obviously, has lots of places but the prices tend to be higher.

    Hi Tim,

    I've read that Sea Pines Plantation on Hilton Head is a good tennis school. Also, during Thanksgiving week, Stan Smith participates in the instruction.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!
