Elegant, refined and with a name that’s practically legend in the spa industry and beyond. It’s no surprise that whatever Champneys do, they do it well, and that includes tennis. Head to almost any of their venues in the UK and enjoy their beautiful grounds while you work up an appetite on the courts. If you’re at Champneys Springs you might even fit in a game of outdoor chess afterwards if you’re feeling particularly sprightly!
If you haven’t been here yet, you’re in for a treat. The picture-perfect mansion and its surrounding grounds are fit for Kate and Wills, but more importantly it’s the the home of the longstanding Boodles Charity Tennis Tournament each year. A glamorous, glossy event and all for a good cause, it sees the pros compete within touching distance of the spectators in the weeks leading up to Wimbledon itself. Nadal and Djokovic have played there over the years… and they do a mean cucumber sandwich as well.
With three squash courts and three tennis courts, you have no excuses not to be an expert after visiting this spa. Surrounded by beautiful grounds in Warwickshire there’s ample space and opportunity for game, set and match. That said, there’s also a nine-hole golf course if you prefer – either way, anyone who’s a fan of hitting things with sticks is well catered to.
The perfect thing about this spa and hotel is that it’s a treasure trove for the whole family. That includes a whopping EIGHT tennis courts in the extensive grounds (all 320 acres of it), not to mention table tennis when the weather’s less than perfect.
Deep in the heart of Surrey, Grayshott is the quintessential health spa. For those who come here, the service is impeccable, the food is glorious, and the grounds are idyllic. In amongst all of that, the tennis is, as you might expect, pretty spectacular. Not just because of the peaceful location (as a happy coincidence mobile phones appear not to work here), but because this isn’t just any old tennis, for those looking for lessons, Grayshott has it’s very own in-house tennis pro to really give you that competitive edge!
