Today was another beautiful day in Indian Wells. I was lucky enough to stop by my old stomping grounds at the Rancho Las Palmas Country Club in Rancho Mirage, CA and meet up with Tennis Ventures, a company that builds vacations around playing and watching tennis. How cool is that? They are here in Palm Springs this week putting on a tennis camp for tennis lovers from far and wide.
This event features everything you could imagine from clinics with some of the best players in the world past and present such as the Bryan Brothers (and their dad Wayne), Lindsay Davenport, and Justin Gimelstob, to three sessions at the BNP Paribas Open in a luxury suite. Participants fill their days with tennis, free time for golf and sun, and experiences they will remember forever.
I went down to check out some of the action and was able to watch a very entertaining volley game featuring the Bryan Brothers amazing reflex volley skills. Everyone genuinely looked like they were having a blast.
Even though this vacation is already half way through, don’t fret! Tennis Ventures has vacations planned for the French Open, Wimbledon, and Australian Open. I asked owner Chadwick Byrd what makes these vacations stand out and he replied that it delivers the only all-inclusive, tennis playing vacation to the international Grand Slam tournaments out there.
And if you do end up going on vacation (I can’t say I won’t be a little jealous), stock up with all the latest tennis gear available at Tennis Warehouse.
