La Quinta Resort & Club Wins #1 Tennis Resort Ranking

La Quinta Resort & Club Wins #1 Tennis Resort Ranking
Directed by former Davis Cup team captain and international champion Tom Gorman, La Quinta Resort & Club and PGA WEST were named this month the number-one tennis resort in the United States by Luxury Travel Magazine. The prestigious publication states, “The term ‘lap of luxury' immediately comes to mind when one thinks of the La Quinta Resort & Club. Recent accolades came from none other than Rafael Nadal…Nadal raved about the facilities along with the pristine atmosphere of this desert oasis, which transports you to a wonderful sense of tranquility.”

Also this month, Tennis Resorts Online released its top 100 rankings for tennis resorts and camps. Receiving a Gold Medal, a number two U.S. ranking and a number one ranking among California properties, the La Quinta Resort Tennis Club received high praise from the publication, which said, “Its Clubhouse Court is hands-down the most beautiful court at a resort anywhere, and the later addition of a spa next door and a courtside fitness center only seemed to add to the allure. At 23 courts–18 hard and 5 Har-Tru–it remains one of the larger resort complexes in the desert. The setting is magnificent, the rooms exceptionally comfortable, the cuisine excellent.”

La Quinta Resort Director of Tennis Gorman shared and celebrated the award news with his staff. “I'm thrilled to hear of both these recognitions and I share them with our entire team, who work very hard at providing first-class service for our tennis guests at La Quinta Resort & Club. Our goal is to ensure that every guest leaves the court with the strongest desire to come back…and to tell all their friends,” said Gorman.

Coinciding with its two national tennis awards, La Quinta Resort has also just announced a three-day weekend tennis camp to take place June 21 through 23, 2013. The camp will feature tennis coaching by Tom Gorman and his team of pros and will include nine hours of court time. Priced at $310 for resort guests or $429 for non-resort guests, the fee includes the camp, court time, coaching, a welcome reception, Saturday night group dinner at Adobe Grill, one continental breakfast and a commemorative t-shirt. Tennis players wishing to reserve participation in the camp may call 1 760 564 7655. Guests wishing to stay at the resort during camp dates and qualify for the resort-guest enrollment fee can use promo code PTNCMP when forwarded to reservations after finalizing their camp participation.
